“Like Father Like Son”; that is a very popular saying and if people from old times have invented this saying; there must be numerous instances and reasons for that. It is a very common tendency of humans that they want to see their kids pursuing and following the same career and field that they have been following. And if the kids are also attracted to the same field and have a flair for that field; then of course it acts like an icing on the cake.
And if you are pushing or motivating your kid to pursue a dream that is academic; maybe it will be a bit tedious for the kid himself. But if the kid is pushed towards something that is liked and desired by millions of people; it is sure that the kid will not only consider himself lucky but will do his best to excel in that field. Being born in a rich family has fruits of its own and what even to say if you are son/daughter of a Bollywood star.
