Proprietress Advises Parents to Allow Children Choose Career

Proprietress Advises Parents to Allow Children Choose Career:

THE proprietress of Lifespring Montessori School, Magodo, Lagos, Mrs. Melvina Edeoghon, has advised parents to ensure that they do not prevail over their children’s choices in choosing a career path.

She stated this in an interview with our correspondent shortly after the school held its maiden inter-house sports competition at the Lagos State University Museum playground in Agege, Lagos.

“Gone are the days when it was not fashionable for children to be footballers, musicians and the like. I advise parents to study their children carefully and help them to realise their potential to the fullest. They are to play advisory roles, not affirmative,” Edeoghon counselled.

She also stressed the need for pupils to have total development in school, explaining total development as comprising the cognitive, physical, social and emotional aspects of a child.

“We organised this sports event primarily to ensure total development. We want to instill the spirit of sportsmanship in pupils, and this will be a biennial event,” Edeoghon said.

The sports competition witnessed activities like march past, 100m race, invitation relay race, filling the bottles, and sack race. The highpoint of the competition was the staff and parents’ race which saw teachers and parents contesting in a fun-filled race.
