Parents must take good care of children
Poverty or no poverty, let no one tell me that one can hand a glass of chang’aa to their school-going child as remedy for hunger, or thirst.
A parent like the one who confessed, in a story in this paper, that they do that for lack of a choice can only be joking if the word mother or parent still bears the meaning I know.
I am advising her and others of her ilk to take good care of their children because they are the only way to break poverty cycles that run through generations in some families.
