“Dad! I’ve secured the best grade in English.”
“But son what good is that? You have to pursue engineering, earn the best grades in Math and Science like your best friend does.”
“Mom, look I’ve won this Art competition!”
“That’s great my dear, but focus on your studies. These paintings won’t help you in your career.”
“Dad, I’ve secured 85 per cent marks in finals!”
“But son, the highest in your class is 93 per cent. So this is not up to the mark. You must work harder.”
If you have heard such interaction between parents and kids, or have experienced it yourself, let’s face it. Not a day goes by that you’re not tempted to glance to the left and to the right to see how your child, or even you, measure up to the people around.
