In the actual world, if we want our children to be professional engineers, we must enroll them in an engineering college when they are 18 years or older. They can only serve as engineers once they have received board-approved accreditation. And, if that weren't enough, only experience and exposure in their fields may help them improve their talents and gain recognition.

How to get stricter without becoming the Villain

Even before our kids are born, we as parents begin to fantasize about their future.

Is growing up a hardship?

When a child transitions from childhood to teenage, they bring a lot of baggage with them, such as anxiety, fear, and emotional instability. Adolescence can be regarded as a gateway.

Children's encounters with language and literacy during the earliest months and years of life can lay the foundation for eventual reading proficiency.
