Let’s train up a parent

IT’S TIME that instead of sending children to Dodds or Summerville, we send the parents. Let them learn how to train up a child in the way he should go.

When I read in the WEEKEND NATION of September 24, that a parent had complained that children were being deprived of an education by the principal’s nit-picking over clothes, I was ashamed.

The school head had sent parents adequate notification on the length of uniforms and how socks should be worn before their children were sent home.

And rather than some parents being parents, they became the children themselves.

Parents afforded their boys pants to ride low on their buttocks, as a case in point, and allowed their girls’ hems to be higher than is acceptable.

How can our children be disciplined and respect authority? Hoping our principals don’t back down, and that God would grant some of us parents common sense.
