It has been a long time since schools were indefinitely closed due to Covid 19.
It was a surprise to many as this caught them unaware. How they had to swallow the bitter pill as there was no other option to save the children from the pandemic.
Since then, it has not been easy to stay with children for such a long time bearing in mind that some live in high populated areas.Some of the parents have said it openly why it has been hard to stay with their children for such a long time and it is their prayer this will come to an end soon.
This are some of the reasons they gave:
Children cannot learn by themselves without the help of the teacher. They don’t take parents seriously when they give the assignments . Some of the parents are not aware on what is taught in school. Others know little about the syllabus.
Controlling children has not been easy, This is because they are staying in small rooms and keeping children congested in a room for a whole day is not easy to them.They better go outside where they would have a wider space for their activities.
Some parents are still going to their working places, hence children are left unattended. They(the children)may take advantage of this and engage themselves with immoral behaviours which parent could not advocate for if they were around.
Some children are still too young to understand why they are being told that it is not right to play with their peers.Keeping them in the house all day is not that simple.
Then there are the teenagers who most of the time they feel they are always right. This brings conflict between them and the parents.Sometimes they take advantage of the absence of the parent to do immoral things which could land them in danger.The parents have to deep more in their pockets for the unexpected budget.
It is a prayer to every parent that things will be back to normal soonest.
