Ayanfe Eledumare, mother of Nigerian artist Simi, has called on Nigerians to who are wicked and hostile to their employees to stop in order for their children not to pick up negative habits.
News of the Dowen College student’s death went viral after a Twitter user took to the platform and called out the school after claiming the late student was his cousin. The school has been charged with lying about how the deceased received the injuries that led to his death.
In a tweet, she slammed parents who are overly protective of their children and refuse to let them receive criticism from other adults.
She wrote: “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.”
