What you want to become? #DoYourHomework
What do you want to become when you grow up? I never asked Kanna this question because I know that his answer will change. But now, he is big enough to come up with this question on his own. He says, “Amma, you know what I want to become when I grow up? A fireman!”
His answer changes every week. Sometimes he wants to become an Astronaut, sometimes it is a scientist. There are times when he wants to become a policeman and fight the baddies.
He did say a few times that he would like to become a Super Hero when he grows up and then he ran around with a towel for the cape and called out, “Super Kanna to the rescue!” 🙂 Yeah, I know!
Once he said that he wants to become a big man when he grows up. 🙂
His aspirations changes often and I am sure as he grows older I am going to hear more such roles he would like to become. I am happy to learn that my kid knows so many career choices including the Super Hero option at such a young age. The truth is, children today have a lot of career choices. And as parents, it is our responsibility to be prepared to help them with whatever they choose to be.
Parents can help the children in exploring the various career options out there. #DoYourHomework is an initiative by Axis Mutual Fund to help the parents to come up with options in saving money for children’s future. Children’s education is a longer-term goal for many parents and the ideal way to plan for it would be by investing in mutual funds through a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP).
While our children dream of what they want to become, we, the parents, should do our homework to help them achieve those dreams. Plan for the child’s future and do better investments now, so later when they aspire to become the real Super Heroes, we can hold their hands and say, “Go Baby!”, without frantically searching our pockets.
So, what are you waiting for? Do your homework! I did mine. While you are at it, check out this video.
