Parents must take part in their children’s education

2016-05-26 06:00

There’s nothing more disappointing than to see parents failing to take part in their kids education.

Gone are the days when parents should leave the education of their children only to teachers.

It is important for parents to take the education of their children seriously and help them with their schoolwork. Parents should realise that charity begins at home.

They should always encourage their children and make sure that they put their education first. Parents should also guide their kids on how to conduct themselves in life. As Mickey Rooney once said: “You always pass failure on the way to success.” When you avoid failure you avoid success. Don’t be afraid to fail and surround yourself with people who will support your setbacks.
