Teaching Children Responsibilities: Sharing the I’m D-SMARTTEESSTT™ Principle (2)

Opening Charge

 

‘The section we just read leaves us without excuse as the custodians of the life of the children in teaching them responsibilities. The truth is that if we fail in this godly and legal responsibility, we would fail our children, every child within our network and humanity in general.’

 

Hello friends, I am excited to be with you this beautiful morning. It is my passion to appear here today to share with you the depth of my heart. I hope you find your visit to this page daily worth your precious time. Please send us your comments from time to time to let us know how you find the discussions here. It is in this light that I must thank Mrs. Olalade Hector-Fowobaje for comments.

 

Join me as I continue the discussion I began yesterday. Let us read together Section 19 of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003:

 

Every child has responsibilities towards his family and society, the Federal Republic of Nigeria and other legally recognized communities, nationally and internationally.

 

It is the duty of a child, subject to his age and ability and such other limitations as may be contained in this Act and any other law, to —

  • working towards the cohesion of their families,

 

  • respecting their parents and elders,

 

  • placing their physical and intellectual capabilities at the service of the State,

 

  • contributing to the moral well-being of the society,

 

  • strengthening social and national solidarity,

 

  • preserving the independence and integrity of the country,

 

  • respecting the ideals of freedom, equality, humaneness, and justice for all persons, relating with others in the spirit of tolerance, dialogue and consultation,

 

  • contributing to the best of their abilities solidarity with and unity withAfrica, and the world at large.

 

 

While Section 19 of the Act, which we just read dwells on the responsibilities of children, the Section 20 we are about to read focuses on the responsibilities of all the custodians of the life of the child to help him live up to his outlined responsibilities. Section 20 reads, ‘every parents, guardians, institutions and authorities responsible for the care, maintenance, upbringing, education, training, socialization, employment and rehabilitation of a child has a duty to provide the necessary, guidance, education and training for the child in his or her care such as will equip the child to secure his assimilation, appreciation and observance of the responsibilities set out in this part of the Act.’

 

The section we just read leaves us without excuse as the custodians of the life of the children in teaching them responsibilities. The truth is that if we fail in this godly and legal responsibility, we would fail our children, every child within our network and humanity in general.

 

Join me tomorrow as I share with you the principles to employ in carrying out this responsibility.

    I now construe that, being a parent, guardian…takes a form of responsibility from anyone within the capacity of a parent, guardian, teacher…. From the forgoing provisions(sections 19 and 20 of the Child Right’s Act 2003, it is made clear that parents, guardians…are like compass to the child. What the become is solely on how we handle, treat, respond and care for them.

    Thanks Mr Taiwo Akinlami; I count it all joy to be schooled, informed and guided by your blog.
