He further urged parents to pay their children’s school fees regularly and provide them with the necessary learning materials to motivate the children to be regular in school adding that failure to do so would affect the children in learning.
He said parents are required to lay the foundation for their children and the training parents give to their children determines what they become in future adding that education and proper parenting is one of the important things parents owe their children.
