Dear Editor,

As a concerned of a community and a citizen of this country, I would like to address the lack of interest of parents and guardians for their children.

Parents rather spend more time on their phones, with friends, kava sessions yet, they don’t have time to pick their kids up from school or be with the kids to overlook their homework or to listen to their kids. This the reason as to children end up in accidents and/or mixed with the wrong crowd. We have more than one issue arising regarding our children. We have teenage pregnancy, rape, missing children and so on that we can add.

Kids outgrow a toy and outfits, but they never outgrow time and love. So, I urge all mature adults, parents and guardians to change their habits towards their kids. Try and spend more time with the kids to know at which point they are in life. Be ready to pick them from school before class ends in a day. The little ways we show them that we care are the ones that will matter to them. Its not guaranteed that this will totally solve this issues with our children but at least it would bring the relatable cases to our children down and provide a good foundation for parents/guardians with our children.

Yours sincerely,

Vabiola Vunibobo
