Important Things Every Sierra Leonean Parents Should Teach Their Children Before School Reopens

A wise unknown person penned down a very educative piece which this medium finds absolutely fascinating to let parents learn from and teach to their kids.

Kindly read to the end.

“Hello All

School is about to start so please sit down with your child for 5 minutes and explain that being very tall, short, chubby, skinny, black or white is no joke. That there is nothing wrong with wearing the same shoes every day. Explain to them that a used backpack carries the same dreams as a new one. Teach them not to exclude someone because they are “different” or do not have the same opportunities as others. Explain that teasing hurts…and that they go to school to LEARN, NOT to compete. YOU AND I HAVE THE SAME VALUE! EDUCATION STARTS AT HOME… It’s AT HOME that children should learn to say: 01 – Good morning

02 – Good afternoon

03 – Good evening

04 – Please

05 – With your permission

06 – Sorry

07 – Forgive me

08 – Thank you very much

09 – Thank you

10 – I was wrong

It’s AT HOME that we also learn to:

01 – Be honest

02 – Be punctual

03 – Do not insult

04 – Be polite

05 – Respect everyone: friends, colleagues, elders, teachers, authorities

Still at home we learn to: 01 – Eat everything

02 – Do not talk with your mouth full

03 – Have personal hygiene 04 – Don’t throw litter on the ground

05 – Help parents with their daily chores

06 – Don’t take what doesn’t belong to you

07 – Be content with what you have

08 – Work honestly to earn a living

09 – Dress with modesty

At home we still learn to: 01 – Get organized

02 – Take care of your belongings

03 – Do not touch other people’s belongings

0 4 – Respect the rules,

05 – Speak your mother tongue(s), master your culture and spirituality

Because AT SCHOOL teachers should teach: ■ Mathematics ■ French ■ History ■ Geography ■ Foreign language ■ Science ■ Chemistry ■ Physics ■ Biology ■ Philosophy ■ Sociology ■ Physical education ■ Art… And only reinforce what the student has learned AT HOME!!! Because it is from what we have learned AT HOME that the individual will be respected, that he will respect  life.

School, street…. will never replace home.”
