So many parents get all stressed out when it comes to finding and buying those high in demand school supplies. If it is not the package of pens and pencils then it is now the laptop and even canvas art supplies. So much to do but you know what? It happens every year and each time it is all the same; parents scrambling at the last minute to buy what is needed.
Almost every parent dreams of giving their kids the best opportunity to succeed. Be it that they get a more than fair crack of a better future then they have had, or doing better at school than they. Yes, it all begins with the textbooks and school supplies but there is a lot more work to be done before the journey ends. If you are a hard working corner notcher you will agree that the kids also need to pull their weight.
True it is that we really can't choose careers for our kids but what we can do is to give the best possible start in life. They may choose to become a vacuum excavation technician or a search engine optimizer. They may choose to leave home and go abroad or leave their home town to study elsewhere. All of these are paths that are open to them but we need to guide them along the way.
Each year, thousands of students from around the world travel to Canada to study at our institutions of learning and why? Because Canada offers an excellent way to learn. Not just in the classroom but on the streets as well so to speak and at the end of it all; students are able to retain their cultural identity. Some students may go on to be teachers while others may choose to go into their own wedding caterer Toronto business venture.
Some students may go on to be top notch medical professionals while others may choose to use their Toronto loft as their home base to design and develop websites.
The best that we can do for our kids is to help them discover and explore those opportunities that best suit their dreams and aspirations. Difficult you may be asking? Not as difficult as you may be imagining. It takes a lot of thinking, creativity and communications with your kids. Teamwork is important and budget planning also plays a part.
