For a child's education and career life to be secured, there are some important decisions in life that parents need to make. Why are they important? Because a well-planned future is much more rewarding and secured than one that is not. If you follow these little things from your children's birth, you can pave way for a great future of theirs.
Child savings plan
The education system is getting more and more every year. For a full fledged education, it costs approximately 42 millions for one child to study. Two decades from now, you might not be able to imagine the expenditure. On the other hand, you could definitely save a little every year for that big day and make it look effortless gifting your progeny the best education package. Insurance agencies have customised as well as already charted out plans that can cater to this need.
Career options exploring
As how it is portrayed in three idiots most parents aspire their kids to be a doctor if its a girl or an engineer if its a boy. Yes, those professions are indeed respected ones. But you might never know what would be more rewarding and exciting for your kid as well as you unless or otherwise, you learn about the other career options.
Even though your kid will have his or her own ideas, there will be one point in life when they will stop and look at you for guidance. At that juncture, you must be prepared to tell them the pros and cons of the path that they would be taking and help them to choose wisely. So do your research well ahead of time and stay updated with the career trends and other unique courses by reading and learning from the industry experts.

Encourage to set goals
Some parents try to feed in their dream unto their children. Encouraging them to set goals means wooing them to dream big and not dreaming for them. Teach them how to set goals, make plans, stick to it and achieve the targets. Whenever they get frustrated as the study pressure mounts from outside, remind them about their long term goal and how not giving up now would help them achieve in greater avenues.
Freedom to think
Like how you should not dream for your children, you must not restrict their career ambitions with constraints. When they are young, kids can be creative and inquisitive. Give them the freedom to imagine beyond the skies when they are young. You can tell them the practical implications when they are old enough to understand. Until then nurture their creativity and help them believe that nothing is impossible if worked for.
Risk contingency plan
Everything in life comes with a price. You cannot say cent per cent that a plan would become successful unless the child has given his or her everything into it. So think of back up plans even in worse case scenarios and act accordingly. Say, your daughter wants to be a foot ball player but unfortunately she doesn't get selected in the national team the very first time she had attempted, suggest her something to do that year and also give her the liberty to start earning on her own accord without pushing her to churn out money. It is important that children have the liberty to follow their passion in order to be successful in life.
