Mother of Nigerian singer, Simi, has advised Nigerians to stop being wicked to their staff, so their children wouldn’t copy bad traits.
Jedidah, in her recent tweet, condemned parents who are extremely protective and do not allow their children take correction from other adults.
In her words;
“Too many sad stories of children maltreated by teachers & fellow students. Why are people so wicked to children? Some adults are still doing same to their housemaids & staff. Please, change your ways & stop being wicked. Those of you who did it in the past should ask for mercy.
Some students learn wickedness from home from the way their parents treat their domestic staff. They see their parents treat their staff less than human & these kids took this mentality to school to deal with those younger or weaker than them. Parents, please show good example.
Parents, have a good relationship with your children so they can quickly speak up when they are being molested by a teacher or fellow students. Find time to ask them questions that will make them open up. Attend their Parents/Teachers meeting and be observant.
When your child complains please listen. I removed my daughter from FGGC & she became a day student when I realised she didn’t like it. What works for one child might not work for another. Stop using other people’s children to determine what is okay for your own children. Listen.
Parents, pls don’t stop going to your children’s schools when they enter university. Our kids now go to Uni at a young age so we still need to be up & doing. Check on them, encourage them & advice them & check out their friends. Trust them into the hands of God but do your part.”
