Parents tasked on children’s moral development
They were also asked to instill good virtues in their children and create appropriate structures that will make them excel in their chosen careers.
Proprietor of Pacific Schools, Shasha, Akowonjo, Lagos, Mr. Idowu Omosowon, made the call during the prize giving and 2021 valedictory service of the school.
He said parents should pay more attention to their children to engender proper upbringing that would ensure success in their future endeavours.
According to him, parents have roles to play in ensuring their children see the big picture of possibilities that lie ahead of them.
Parents, he said, should ensure that their wards shun social vices and concentrate on those virtues that would help them in future.
He stressed the need for children to be creative, adopt critical thinking, communication and collaboration to ensure their success.
Omosowon, who advised government to assist private school with financial assistance to help in molding the future generation, urged the graduating pupils to learn to organise them
Similarly, the head teacher, Mrs. Victoria Daramola, said all hands should be on deck to instill the fear of God in children and teach them good morals.
According to her, there is a need to teach young ones from the tender age the dangers of cultism and other vices.
Daramola aadvised graduates to imbibe good behaviour and shun social vices that will rob them of their potentials.
A parent, who gave her name simply as Mrs. Ogunsola, said the high level of moral decadence in the society is an indication that parents have abandoned their roles, as charity begins at home.
