When a child starts growing up, he or she probably knows what they want to become in the future. Most times, with the help of a mentor, such a child can be groomed into the best versions of themselves. However, there are some kids who have to be pushed into some things for them to get interested. For some children, things work out well in the end, and for others, things are not so great. Raising a child takes dedication and focus, and sometimes making that child into a superstar in the world, is up to the parents or guardians.
