Be active in your children’s lives, Edochie urges parents



Nollywood veteran actress, Rita Edochie, has urged parents to live up to their responsibilities and be active in the lives of their children.

The renowned actress, who took to her Instagram page @ritaedochie to give the advice, said parents should stop running away from their responsibilities as regard to their children’s welfare, “a greater rewards await them when the children come of age.”

She further said that nurturing, loving and providing the basic things of their children, makes those children to be outstanding anywhere they found themselves.

According to her, parents are shaping their children’s future when they provide those basic things they needed in life, saying that it is necessary to invest in them now and reap the profits later.

She added that to avoid neglect at old age, parents should not abandon their children in their struggle, rather help them in their struggle because when they triumph to success, their parents might not have any right to their success story.

“Stop running away from your responsibilities in the lives of your children, face them squarely and gain massive rewards when they come of age with strong positive societal influence.

“If you are a parent, married or single, please ignite your responsibilities in the lives of your kids.

“Nurture, love and provide all the basic things they need to become outstanding. This is your child’s future you are shaping, invest in them now and reap the price later.

“Don’t abandon them to struggle alone, if you do, they eventually triumph to success, you may have no say or right in their success.

”You will just be at their mercy as no one will compel them to love and take of you at old age. They will decide what to give you and when they will give to you.

“But when you go out of your way to invest in your child’s future, when he or she becomes successful you will always have full right to his or her pocket, freely making demands without limitations.

“Don’t dispute this message because I see this happening in various families I know,” she wrote.
