When I was growing up,family values was the first and main issue that parents make kids know and abide by and that is what is pushing a lot of people till today to great heights and to been successful in whatever they do.

Like one of my Professors use to say,"family values in the world is long gone with the '80s generation".He analysed the family values issues to use with a circular type chart,that for example a child is surrounded first by immediate family,the community,the school,then the church and then the law.He said the child already broke through circular covering of the families,the community,school and the church and it is only the law that is still keeping the child in check as of today.

I agreed with him because back in the days,we were so afraid of our families,elderly people in our immediate community,our school teachers and the church executives,and all that always keep us in check when breaking the law or misbehaving,but nowadays parents dont even have time for their kids,that they cant even control them and it is only the law that is controlling the society now.

I kinda wonder what will happen if the circular covering of the law breaks.Well my Professor believe that is when the world will come to an end.

I believe we need to take the responsibilties of discipline back to homes by teaching kids family values which will literally make us appreciate the value of life.

Let me know what you think.

You haven't got children, have you? I haven't either. But lord knows that my kids will be spending a good stint in a Naija school, where the teachers are not afraid to use the koboko for fear of being sued. Na me born the child, na me go beat some sense into the child too o.
