Believe it or not, the characters, plots, and situations shown in the movies are heavily inspired by real life.
There are many movies both in Hollywood and Bollywood that can easily inspire the parents of today through intelligently embedded parenting lessons. Especially, to the parents whose kids are studying hard day and night to crack NEET, 2018.
So, if your child is taking up NEET coaching classes or is seeking help from any of the new-age digital learning platforms like Aakash iTutor, your role in the preparation is as big as the learning tools and coaching classes.
Here, we have scouted a list of 5 Bollywood movies, that will inspire you enough to become your child’s backbone during the preparation. Take a look!
Wake Up Sid
It’s been eight years since Ranbir Kapoor portrayed the role of a laidback Siddharth Malhotra. This movie taught all the moms and dads of the country that criticizing your child’s dream in every step of life may make them feel under confident and develop a rebellious nature. Focusing on your child’s score sheet, or chalking out a good career option is good, but forcing them to study the way you want and choosing a career for can slowly close all the communication channels between you and your child. So, the next time you see your child working hard for the NEET entrance exam, make sure you appreciate it without pointing out their mistakes.
Taare Zameen Par
Every child has a different way of understanding and learning things. Taare Zameen Par portrayed this quite well. Darsheel Safary played the role of a dyslexic child who had problems understanding conventionally taught lessons. This blockbuster movie left tears in almost everyone’s eyes and delivered an important message to the parents. If you child is unable to learn things conventionally, try and incorporate new-age learning techniques to make your child understand lessons in a smooth manner. Figuring out your child’s talent at an early age and at the right time is necessary before it gets too late.
Education and exposure to the outer world are as important for girls as for boys. Dangal was based on a real-life story where a father shaped the future of his daughters in the field of wrestling. Fighting all the odds of the society, the story of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters is an inspiration for one and all. The rigorous training offered made the girls strong and the nation proud.
So, if you can foresee the talent your child holds, stand strong through all the odds and help your child achieve it. There’s nothing as significant as the support of parents for a child.
Though the movie was filmed around how Rancho stepped into someone else’s shoes to make his dream come to true of studying in an engineering college, how Farhan Qureshi’s (R. Madhavan) father forced him to be an engineer (when he wanted to take up photography) was something all parents need to take into account. No matter how much pressure you build on your child, he/she would not be able to excel at something they don’t connect with and enjoy studying.
The main crux of the story is how a deaf and mute boy from a remote area is able to make his dream come true using his skills and talents. The movie also showcases how important parental support is when it comes to molding the future of their child. So, if your child aims to be a doctor and is taking up NEET coaching classes, make sure you extend full support and create positivity around for your child to succeed well.
Though many other films offer major parenting lessons to parents of all generations, these are a few movies that are both educating and entertaining at the same time. So, the next time when you are in a DVD store, be sure to grab a copy of the movies mentioned above.
