By now I think your boy or girl child is at home. Kindly KEEP him/her away from fire or any combustible material or fuel because in him/her is an arsonist. Feed him/her well. Avoid conflicting with your son and daughter even if he/she does wrong just be a friend- yes a nice friend to him/her. Being friendly to him/her must and will purge out the arsonist inside him/her easily without necessarily calling for firemen. If your son and daughter did not let the arsonist out of him/her do something good for them and make sure to kill the arsonist inside them before they return back to school.
We parents of the last century have to learn on how to handle our children like people and by this I mean treat them as grown-ups. Yes they are grown-ups men and women or you can even call them ladies and gentlemen. Believe it or not they are grown-ups since they take have taken care of themselves for the last 3months and still they will be taking care of themselves here at home since you’ve valued your profession and work than you value them. Also you parents of the current century, make sure to control what your son/daughter watches, plays and the duration he/she takes in those activities.
Also not forgetting of the childish behavior inside their heads, Parents kindly keep them informed and updated on what that is taking place in their bodies so as to confuse the spirit of adventure and curiosity that has reigned their minds and hearts. Above all initiate playtime with them, fellowship and teach them what God wants out of them, tell them what the society expects of them.
You know what? They will learn why you got rough or smooth hands maybe this one will motivate them.
With love correct them. It’s you who will mould good and responsible husbands and wives of the near future to come. I hope you will remain responsible or even learn to be responsible for the sake of the generation.
May He Who strengthens… give you wisdom and knowledge to lead the gifts He Has given to your able hands.
