Hon. David Sei Demah, a Parliamentary candidate in the Bole-Bamboi constituency for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections, has urged parents and guardians to keep firm eyes on their children and wards for them to become responsible citizens in future.
It is also important for parents to monitor the movements of their children, as well as those they play with in order for them not to fall prey to ill-intended people.
Speaking on Yagbon radio local program dubbed “Jaanuor Buur” on Saturday evening July 17, 2021, Hon Demah said parents ought to strive to ensure not only the growth and wellbeing of their children, but their proper socio-cultural development as well.
He said parents and guardians had a crucial role to play in ensuring that all children had the right nurturing to grow to become responsible and productive adults in the future.
They should also build stronger communication relationships with their children and wards since it was a way of increasing children, especially adolescents’ self confidence level,he stated.
They should again support and encourage their children even when there was a failure in their efforts,Hon Demah added.
He also urged children especially students to develop the habit of achieving excellence in both personal and professional life.
“You strive for continuous improvement in your life and adopt perseverance to achieve your goals; patience and consistency will earn you sustainable positive outcomes,” he said.
Hon. Demah also asked students to keep away from negativity in life and approach hurdles and challenges through positive attitude.
“Every one of us has challenges and difficulties in life but only those who are optimistic embark on a progressive path and excel in their career,” he said.
Citing himself as an example he said he embarked on menial jobs to better some of his papers after completing his Secondary School education.
He indicated that with perseverance and hardwork one can achieve in life.
