Lagos, May 1, 2015 (NAN) Dame Abimbola Fashola, wife of Lagos State Governor, has urged parents to be supportive to their children In their chosen career.

She gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sidelines of the 70th Anniversary of the Holy Child College on Thursday in Lagos.

Fashola said that parents should not force their children against their chosen carers to enable them to live the life they wished.

“Our children need to be encouraged when they make any choice of career as they grow, so, please let us, the parents, allow them to be the best they can and walk tall and succeed,’’ she said.

She said children of today should be encouraged as they know how to comport themselves.

“We must make sure that brothers and sister grow up to know, respect each other and work together.

“Let’s not lay much emphasis on the girl child, children generally must grow up to help one another, do house chores together; they should all be trained to be good citizens in the society.’’

Fashola further called on parent to be more careful in employing domestic assistants to curb the incessant kidnapping of children.

She said parents should check the background of of people employed to guide children against child molestation.

“We need to check and clarify the kind of people we employ in the house for the safety of our children.

“When we employ all these house assistants, we also need to register them with the police to make sure of their background.

“By so doing, they will know that we have all the information through which the police could fish them out once there was the need,’’ she said.
