Child psychologist, and author, Bukola Lamidi has advised parents to adopt 21st-century parenting by identifying the uniqueness of their children rather than force them to take up professional careers, which may become irrelevant in the future.

Lamidi who spoke extensively on the art of parenting said most parents could not identify the peculiarities of their children and thus failed to understand them. She added that parents should expose their wards to the real world and make them realise that everything cannot be at their disposal.

“Children of this age do not understand the outside world, they cannot think for themselves, we meet their needs at whatever cost. We should teach our children to know that life is laced with ups and downs.“Children should not have more than two hours play time. In the next few years, 55 per cent of children between ages six and 18 may turn deaf before age 30, while 28 percent may develop brain illness resulting from the use of headsets.”

Lamidi who spoke at the 21st anniversary of Gem Private School urged parents to take up full responsibility of their children, as they now make up majority of mental cases in Nigeria.

While commending teachers and educators in the school for their parenting skills, she pleaded that parents should spend more time with their kids.
Acting School Director, Mr. Olumide Anjorin said the school is not run as a business outfit, hence profit is not a drive but contentment. He advised others interested in the business of education to consider how much they can impart rather than what they stand to benefit.
