Rather than comparing one child with the other, let them grow in their own way and nurture them according to their talents. Parents try to realize their own dreams through the eyes of their children which must be avoided to improve the situation.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
This peculiar situation has arisen because everyone wants that the child should get admission in top institutes in the country whether he really has any interest for it or having an academic capability. No one wants to send the children for acquiring technical diploma and get a job quickly or start ones own work. It is considered derogatory and at the same time when the boy is sitting idle after engineering degree everyone blames Govt that it is not providing the job. The post independence era saw the Govt recruiting the people left and right for the quick development of the country and these recruitments were done in Govt as well as PSUs. That era is over now. Everything now is going in private enterprise side and the existing Govt departments and PSUs are shrinking day by day.
We have to change our mind set accordingly. Only those students should go for these coachings who have a calibre and aptitude for higher studies.
Knowledge is power.
As opined by other members, education is not a service now. It is a business these days. The corporate colleges and schools under the umbrella of coaching are collecting a lot of money and getting benefitted. The main problem is in the mindset of the parents. Every parent wants his child to get joined in IITs or prestigious medical colleges. For that, they are ready to spend money and they put their wards in these coaching institutes. The poor child is getting pressurised. The parents should understand the calibre of their wards and give them some freedom of selecting their own interesting course.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
Now the question is whether children should go for coaching or not. If the students can crack the subjects on their own there is no requirement of coaching. These coaching centers are specialized in providing specialized training in getting through the JEE and securing better ranks.
Since there is demand from the students for such coaching, naturally more and more coaching centers comes up. It is a lucrative business as they charge heavily on the students.
