I am changing from one television station to another.
All local news have ‘Corruption’ as their caption.
I can not help but think, we are captives of corruption.
Should I continue watching?
I am fed up with all the fraud!
I opted to help my 7-year-old baby with her homework
My daughter smiled
‘Mama, will you buy me a bicycle if I pass my exams?’ she asked
That is a very simple question but wait!
What impression about education will I cultivate in her if I say yes?
This is where corruption comes in.
Education should be for the sake of my daughter’s bright future.
Doing well should be from intrinsic motivation and not the benefits.
How will I make her understand?
As a parent, I have the power over her.
We are a blinded society.
I really need to tell her to read not only for the benefits.
But also to open her mind to grab opportunities that come her way.
If you are sick and tired just like I am,
Then we should all play a role
Teach Your Children For A Corruption-Free Society!
The situation might be bad today
But you can nurture for a bright future!
