It is not possible for everyone to end up with higher education and white-collar jobs. This is the reason why a child who is becoming an adult must choose one of two options; that is, choosing to learn a trade or acquire a higher education. The choice of which path to take depends on a number of factors. It depends on whether the child has an academic or technical turn. If the child is gifted in both ways, the financial status of the parent or guardian determines which option the child eventually chooses. When the right decisions are not made, the end result is that the child ends up among unemployed and frustrated people and the society suffers in terms of poverty and vices like prostitution, armed robbery, “4-1-9” and others unfortunate. avenues the child chooses to walk.

A vocation, however frivolous, solves the problem of frustration that inevitably arises when people tire of giving to the unemployed. Nothing wears out a person like being hungry and not seeing food to eat. Situations like this have the ability to trigger a kind of deadly frustration. In this situation, an unemployed person begins to see a justification in theft, and eventually in theft. In this sense, a skill that only contributes a little becomes very useful. If, for example, a minor is skilled at carpentry and has his saw, hammer, and tape measure, people will always call on him to nail up a kitchen stool, fix a broken door, or build a box to cast the lintel so he can exercise control. about the impulse to steal or play the scam on an unsuspecting person.

However, the problems that follow from the inability to empower a young man or woman can be minimized if the right steps are taken at the right time. It has often been said that “it is easier to bend a young shoot than to bend an old trunk.” It is the primary responsibility of the parents to study the academic life of the child and decide what is best for him at the right time. If the child is not doing well, it is for them to notice and take drastic action so that the child learns a proper vocation. If they are doing well and they are confident they have the financial resources to support the child through postsecondary education, so be it. However, it is advisable to let the child learn both, as there are many young people who have the education but have not been out of work for many years. The fact is that parents often drag their feet letting the child grow beyond the critical age. From then on, only miracles are needed to reverse the unsafe direction the boy’s life is facing.
