@Pallavi Chaudry Hi, many parents are in the same boat.. I was too sometime back. At 15, children wouldve absorbed a lot and learnt many things while growing up. Their personality also wouldve formed to some extent. They know about their strengths too and parents know their childs nature and interests.Also, by now you already know about all the subjects she has been really good at over the years. Make a list of all her strengths and all the subjects she likes. Is she strong in maths, does she love Biology, is she good in writing, does she enjoy arts and fashion? If you ponder, you will be able to analyse and make a rough list. Once the list is ready, based on your knowledge, discuss with her and try to analyse which industry she would fit in. As far as her hobbies are concerned, she can practice them and also teach during her free time. There are many people who teach music,dance,cooking,art etc, in their free time. This can give a lot of happiness and satisfaction, and also add to their income. Its better to choose something that gels with her personality, nature, skills, and talents. This will keep her motivated to work and her job will never feel like job. Some kids are quiet by nature and some like to talk. For instance, RJs, anchors, and many people whose job requires a lot of talking, are usually people who love to talk a lot and address a lot of people. Similarly, a person who enjoys working at a desk in a quiet environment might want to pick something that matches their personality. There are jobs that require a lot of travelling. Every job has its own requirement.So children can take advantage of all their strengths and weaknesses and decide what they would really enjoy to do all their life.After her schooling, as you must already know, she has to choose science, commerce, arts, job oriented courses or other choices the colleges and schools offer in your city, keeping in mind the profession she would like to take up in future.She will have to write entrance exams after her 12th before her graduation journey, based on what she chooses. She will have to prepare for those entrance tests ahead of time. There are career counsellors who advise students and give them all the information regarding degrees and courses they have to take up to fulfil their goals. The counsellors also educate them about the colleges and universities that offer those courses. Based on all the info, you can pick the courses you are interested in. Most colleges and institutions also help in placement. Information is everything. Try to get all the guidance you can from different sources. Internet also helps a lot. Hope you are successful in picking the right course for your child. Hope this helps. All the best :)
@Pallavi Chaudry Career counselling and guidance can steer your child in the right direction. Heres how to go about it.
@Pallavi Chaudry heyi know as a parent we all want our kids to flourish in their future shine with bright colours. Believe me finding out talent is a much easier task if you communicate and focus on what kids really enjoy doing. As the kid is already 15teen, i suggest everyday keep talking about something that would help her plan the future ,the more she engages in a particular topic you may find out what she likes.
