All works are good – choose to taste!
For many years, the lines from Mayakovsky’s poem were very popular among teachers, parents, and students facing a choice of life path. Today, the answers to these questions have become even more relevant. The need for their correct solution has grown immeasurably. To fit into the new system of public relations, young people, and these are 7th-9th and even 5th grade students, and such career guidance is not too early, you need to study hard and learn how to correctly evaluate your capabilities and abilities, measuring them with real needs in occupations in the labor market.
Each person has certain abilities.
By how much they meet the requirements of a particular profession for a person, they are usually judged by their professional suitability.
Human abilities are not innate. A child is born not with ready-made abilities, with inclinations, that is, with certain physiological characteristics of the structure of the brain, sensory organs and movement. They act as natural prerequisites for the development of abilities.
It is important for everyone choosing a profession to try themselves in a variety of activities and learn to identify and develop their abilities. A person who successfully makes a career always has a high motivation for achievement. But the formation of his career was influenced by the style of parenting in childhood.
Psychologists who studied children who did not have a high achievement motivation found that their mothers had a number of similarities.
1. Orientation to average social standards and norms. Such parents usually compare the achievements of their children with the achievements of other children of the same age. The dependence of success or failure on children’s learning efforts is not taken into account.
2. Tight control over homework and ignoring the child’s own desires. This suppresses the child’s own initiative.
3. An explanation of the reasons for the failure of the child through the lack of ability, and not through the amount of effort. Reprimand for failure, indifference for success.
Parents of children who want to avoid failure, that is, those who are afraid of getting a bad mark in school, rarely praise their children for their achievements. Failures of children are much more likely to cause reproaches and discontent. A closer look at the characteristics of such parents reveals that they adhere mainly to authoritarian methods of upbringing and the failure of their children is a good reason for projecting their own internal tension and irritation. The motivation thus formed in childhood is called “avoiding failure.” Subsequently, it sweeps through life. An adult will be afraid of defeat and will not particularly strive for success, because his low self-esteem formed by his parents will prevent this.
