Parents To Face Harsh Judgement For Bad Parenting
If bad parenting was to be unconstitutional, how many parents would escape the wrath of the law? We are living in days where parents are ever busy making the ends meet leaving little or no time to spend with their children.
Currently, parenting has been shifted to house help who spent much of the time with children while parents are working day and night to get finances to provide for the family basic needs.
For sure toady, if bad parenting was to be a crime, man parents would face a death sentence for ignoring their responsibilities as parents in society.
Leave alone leaving parenting responsibilities to house helps, some parents are reckless to an extent of abusing alcohol and other substances in the presence of their children without thinking of being sensitive to what they are exposing the young ones to.
What an irony!! These days parents who are supposed to be in the front line guiding and disciplining their children are in the frontline of exposing children to bad behaviour.
Domestic violence has taken roots in homes and has become the order of the day. Parents are in constant fight, exchanging unpalatably in front of their children. What good do such parents expect from their children?
The majority of parents have taken their children to boarding schools not because they want them to acquire quality education but because they are running away from their responsibilities. Such parents hope that teachers will instil good behaviour in their children but the outcome is different.
Parents should not ignore their parenting roles. The discipline of a child begins at home therefore all parents should work hand in hand with teachers and school administration to instil discipline in their children.
It is the duty of parents to guide and counsel their children to distinguish between good and evil. A good parent should understand the psychology of their children and they should always be good friends to them.
Increased cases of school fires which have caused a lot of fear among parents, teachers and other education stakeholders come as a result of poor parent and indiscipline among the learners.
The damages caused in schools today due to school arson could have been curbed to a large extent if all parents collaborated in disciplining their children.
A well-mentored child will seldom engage themselves in uncouth behaviours and they are the pride of their parents.
