All parents want their children to succeed. But what is success? Usually we tend to think success equals to achievement. Doing well in school, acing exams, get into the best universities, then get a job with a high standard of living and prestige. This cycle of 'achievement' most often makes the parent proud, but won't necessarily make the child happy.
Happiness is connecting deeply with others and self-actualisation, developing our full potential by accessing our unique gifts, honing them, and sharing them with the world. The passionate pursuit of a goal blesses us with joy if we're willing to wholeheartedly apply ourselves to learning and creating.
