what do psychiatrists say

Psychiatrist Dr. Prakash Jha says that children have more sense of competition and family pressure. From childhood, pressure is made on children to become doctors, engineers, IAS. Children live away from their families, due to which they do not get family and social support. There are less seats in medical and engineering, due to which the competition is more. Parents of children do not understand that competitive exams like NEET, JEE and UPSC are not 10th-12th exams. It is a competition which cannot be compared with the exam. Children become stressed and depressed due to family pressure, social pressure, and fear, due to which they take fatal steps.

What is the remedy?

Dr. Prakash Jha says that people want to make their children doctors, engineers and IAS officers, those parents should understand that children are important for them. If children live in the world, then they can perform better in any field. Parents should not create unnecessary pressure on the children, nor should they set a target for the children that they have to qualify in such and such competition. Parents should take care of the interest of the children and do not put any kind of pressure on them. They should have a friendly conversation with their children and establish a friendly relationship. If children are important to the parents, then such incidents can be stopped.
