WAKE UP PARENTS!

Years back, *poor illiterate  parents* produced:

🔹 Doctors,

🔹 Engineers,

🔹 Pharmacists

🔹 Scientists,

🔹 Accountants,

🔹 Lawyers,

🔹 Pilots

🔹 Architects,

🔹 Professors..,  whom I will refer to as *Group ‘A’*.

This *Group ‘A’* Children struggled on their own after Primary 6 or Secondary schools, to become notable personalities. Most of them

👉🏾trekked to school *barefooted*

👉🏾went to farms

👉🏾fetched water and firewood

👉🏾cared for domesticated animals

👉🏾did some work including trading after school to survive.

👉🏽acquired handcraft skills such as basket weaving, broom making etc and use the money realised to support their personal upkeep.

Now Group ‘A’ , who have now become Parents themselves are *producing  Group ‘B’  Children*

These group B children are:

🔹pampered

🔹 helped with their homework or home assignments from nursery school through secondary schools to higher institutions.

🔹chauffeur driven to very expensive schools or sent abroad to study. 

🔹they can watch movies from morning till dawn after school.

🔹use expensive mobile phones.

🔹Spend hours chatting on social media.

🔹 they are treated like baby kings and queens.

🔹they don’t do any household chores.

🔹Food is put on the table for them,

🔹their plates are removed and washed by parents or housemaids.

🔹They are given expensive cars and clothes,

🔹not forgetting *big pocket money to be wasted* !!!.

🔹Their parents help them in doing their assignments.

🔹some parents look for “special centres” for their children to re-register for the SSSE or NECO that they failed in previous attempts to enhance their chances through exam malpractices😳

🔹In spite of all these, only a few can *speak* or *write* correctly. 😏

🤔 Group ‘A’ Parents cared for their own *parents* and *children*, Group ‘B’, their Children are still *struggling to find their feet at age 30+*.‼️

🤔 They find it difficult to do things on their own because they are used to being helped to think and doing things by Group ‘A’. So they can’t help themselves, their parents or the society. *THEY ABANDON THEIR PARENTS IN THEIR BID TO ACQUIRE THE WORLD*

😴 *Where do you belong*❓‼️

🏮 Reduce the pampering and the unnecessary help you offer your children.

🏮 Let your children *grow in wisdom, intelligence and strength*.

🏮 Let them face the truth and the realities of life. Teach them to grow to become *independent adults.*

Teach them to:

👉🏾fear God,

👉🏾respect  others and

👉🏾develop confidence in themselves.

Parents, discipline your children to become disciplined adults, *useful* and not *useless.*
