We live in a digital world where many changes have been implemented in the last 15 years. Due to the rise of the internet and smartphone. The digital economy brings a revolution in education (online education makes education democratic) and jobs- the news emerged i.e. gig workers, freelancers, digital marketing, and hundreds of more professions. I believe due to these changes, parenting should be changed and revamped. However, there are many parents out there who still have ancient belief systems and they are not willing to change themselves. Here in this article, I will be talking about 5 belief systems that I believe need to be crushed. Their belief systems not only affect children’s personalities but also their futures adversely.

- Good Grades are most important – In today’s digital world. Good grades for children do not hold the same importance as they once did. While academic education is undoubtedly valuable, it is no longer the sole indicator of a child’s potential success. In this era, employers and society place a higher emphasis on practical skills and real-world experience.
- What others think or say about us – This is the most common thing you must have observed. When your child wants to do something different in life, for example. If he is doing theatre, art or music parents get worried about society. Because they believe that society gives respect to children or their parents who follow traditional interests, hobbies, and career choices. Due to digitize the economy, there are so many career choices where you can be very successful, parents should be open and admire child interests and passions instead of asking for approval from others and society.
- Children do not need financial knowledge – Many parents believe that children should focus on school work and have no need to learn about finance. Children who learn financial skills early are more likely to develop good money habits that will serve them well throughout their lives. They will learn the importance of budgeting, saving, and spending wisely. Financial literacy helps make informed financial decisions. Children who have a basic understanding of financial concepts such as budgeting, saving, investing, and debt management are better equipped to navigate the complex financial landscape as they grow up.
- Children should obey parents – This belief system ruins the child’s confidence. Children should respect their parents, but they should display traits of confidence, not obedience. Obedience makes them modern slaves. Once they start obeying and get into that habit it adversely affects them for the whole of their life. They will need approval from society. Parents should change their perspective and focus on upbringing a confident child, not an obedient child.
