By Chinwe Onuigbo, Awka
The wife of Anambra State Governor, Mrs Nonye Soludo has tasked parents with societal change and social reformation. She said parenting has gone from being just a responsibility to a family unit to a task for the overall good of the larger society.
Mrs Soludo affirmed this in a statement released in Awka on Thursday, to celebrate parents on the 2023 Global Day of Parents.
The Governor’s wife while describing parents as important stakeholders in the social progress of any society, noted that parental responsibilities have also increased greatly with changing human and environmental factors, including culture, traditions, migration, technology and education.
She said that parents must also understand sensitive aspects of their jobs, and show more commitment to family and raising the children responsibly.
Mrs Soludo also explained that it is important for parents to teach their children and wards the basic etiquettes of life, culture and traditions, including their mother tongues, dialects, love, patience, respect for constituted authorities, hygiene and personal cleanliness, hard work and communalism.
She also urged parents to begin to see parenthood as a rare blessing, pointing out that one failed home is one of society’s greatest loss.
Mrs Soludo urged parents to always remain the good mirror in their homes and societies. She praised parents worldwide and prayed for God’s grace and wisdom upon them.
