My son recently asked me to help him choose his subjects for O levels. What should I suggest to him without imposing on his decision?

Science is a good option. That way he will have wider options to choose from when he chooses his career path.

Suggest what you want to him and then tell him to think about it and try to figure out what he wants.

Guide him; do not impose your decision on him.

To help your children choose their career encourage them to get success in their career. Try to find out interest and talents and work upon them. Make their decision skills stronger. Teach them gender equality.

Passing 10+2 is crucial, what to do next – is even more critical. Making a right career choice involves a lot of thinking as you have to analyze various fields of studies and right colleges. Now, a days, most of the students are forced to opt a career according to the choice of their parents.Parents are the major influential factor in the career development of a child. The world is changing and the dreams of each child change accordingly. Children should also be given the right to choose their career path and live their dreams but the real world experience of parents definitely can't be put on a back seat. So, who should be the one choosing a career for a child - the child himself, parents or both together?

My thinking is to choose career depends on his subjects. If a child is good in bio, he probably be good in medical. If he likes maths or physics, engineering field is good. Same style for arts or computer too

PERSONAL OPINION: Evaluate his interests

Guide him about ISTAKHARA for making decisions easy....then:

Evaluate his interests & nature while selection. 

Maybe following suggestions will help:

  • Discuss his Personal Interests, Hobbies, Passions, Likes, Dislikes etc. with him
  • Evaluate the Market situation regarding his career stability (minor).

Please, don't PUSH him, nor IMPOSE your decision without his consent.

In a case of any wrong selection, frankly, tell him that explorings & experiments are quite normal things in life (maybe required in future).
