CLERIC URGES PARENTS TO ENHANCE CHILDREN TRAINING FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
An Imam of the Alausa Secretariat Community Central Mosque, Ikeja, Dr. Isa AbdulMujeeb, has urged parents to teach their children the virtues of Islam.
AbdulMujeeb, a medical practitioner spoke during the annual Ramadan lecture, organised by Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Lagos Information Chapel at Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Ikeja.
He said: “Teach your children the way of Islam and let them obey and follow the rules and values of Allah. Education is a key that is missing in some children. It is what we teach them that they will do. As parents, you must watch what you do or say in the presence of our children.”
Also speaking, a lecturer at the Lagos State University (LASU), Ganiu Bamgbose, urged parents to show full support to those kids who chose craft over education.
He highlighted ways parents can support their children in achieving their dreams.
Bamgbose said: “Building one’s dreams starts immediately, one finishes from junior secondary school and an individual starts building their dreams immediately they get to the senior secondary school. It is from there you start ordering your steps towards getting your dreams. So, parents should let their children be guided by their natural ability.
“The role of parents in the lives of the children is very paramount because when they get depressed, it will lead to destruction. When they become desperate, they get involved in untoward things. Parents should relate with their children with love, kindness.”
