DO AS I SAY: WHEN YOU ARE BEING FORCED INTO A CAREER BY PARENTS

“You will be a doctor.”


parental oversight

As you are leaving high school and embark on the journey of finding your career path, you will find yourself feeling pressure. And that pressure will come from the people that are around you. Usually, it will be from your family. They may want you to study a profession that will satisfy them and much so for you to be happy. And a main reason is because they are the ones paying for your education. So this means choosing something you might not be that good in, but do it anyways so you get the help from them. Luckily for me, my mother wanted her children to pursue what we loved and were good at in life. This way we don’t have to worry about the regrets in life of what if.

be ready to turn away

You want to be in the career field of your choice, then be prepared to go at it alone. Because to think that your parents will just reach in their pockets and pay for you and not choose what they want, then you’re crazy. So be ready to look them in the face and leave everything they are willing to give you on the table. And here is the hard part because we want the treats that our parents are willing to give us. We also feel that we disappoint them when we make our own decisions. But it’s your life, so are in the business of satisfying them, or are you going to build your own life.

long road of despair

Taking on a career that you don’t like is a life long journey that will leave you unhappy. Sir the people around you are happy because they can brag and boast about what you do for a living. But the person who has to live the life that is you will be miserable. So choosing to appease others never pans out and all you do is pass it on to your children. And we will have nothing but multiple generations of broken people all trying to appease everyone around them.

MICROMANAGE OFFSPRING: HOW SOCIETY FEELS ABOUT IMPLANTED CHIPS IN CHILDREN

Green Ram Card Collection

“We need to monitor them.”


track your child

As a parent, you want to monitor what your child is doing at all times. That means you have to constantly be on the up and up, especially in these ever changing times. So as time progress, the idea that we could possibly implant chips into our children could be something of the future. This way parents not only can track their child in case of an emergency,they can tell where they are at, at all times. Kids wouldn’t like being tracked, but they don’t understand the hurt a parent feels when that phone call is made that their child is missing. How do you go about this process?

government intervention

For this to be something that could get put into place, you’re talking years and years of fighting lawmakers. Because you have to take into consideration the health effects. But also the rights of the child being chipped. You are their parents, this is obvious, but they are also individuals themselves to a certain age. So if a parent chips their child, at a certain age that kid now has right to know what has been put into their bodies. And if they are not fine with that, it is to be removed. Why, well it’s because a human is not your property even if it is your child. They have the right to know. And also back to the health effects, what, if anything can attributed to the long term implant in your body?

what’s it really built for

Are these chips we’re embracing being used to only track where our children are going? Or will there be other data connected to the child that can be used. Meaning, Facebook has affiliates that advertise to the users when certain keywords are constantly used. Now you are wondering why so much about a certain model car is being marketed to you. It all has to do with what you are typing in that search box on the internet. Could this information also track not only kids movements but their frequented visiting spots for marketers looking to brand to children? This would be a perfect way to turn a profit.

benefits

What are the benefits to being able to chip your child? Well, the upside is that besides tracking their movements, maybe the chip has been connected to figuring out any health problems. Parents would love knowing what is wrong with their child before going to the doctor’s office so the doctor’s job is that much easier.
