Let Children be themselves, guide them what is right and wrong, but let them choose.

Freedom to choose

He said, “I could not become an engineer as I wished,
I will make my son one.”
She said, “I could not learn classical dance at all,
I will make sure my daughter learns and
Performs on the stage.”
I only thought to myself,
‘He and she did not have the freedom
To choose what they wanted to do,
And now they are depriving their children
Their freedom, too..’

Music and Dance

My mom took me to music
And dance class, when I was
A little kid, much against my wishes.
Mom wanted me to be one of the best
Students in the classes, unlike her in
Her young age. Sadly I was average.
Now I am standing in music and
Dance class, with my little kids,
Much against their wishes,
Waiting for them to be the best
Students in the classes, unlike me
In my young age ….
