Discover eye-opening insights from Ghana Teacher Prize nominee Iddi-Amin Fredouse as he addresses the pressing issue of parental negligence and its impact on children’s morality. Learn how his powerful speech at the Lord’s Redeemed School graduation ceremony is changing perspectives.
Accra, Ghana – In a powerful and sentiment-charged address, Iddi-Amin Fredouse, a distinguished nominee for the 2023 Ghana Teacher Prize (GTP), delivered a thought-provoking speech at the recent graduation ceremony of the Lord’s Redeemed School. The theme for the ceremony, “Education, the Greyest Asset,” set the stage for Fredouse’s impassioned message to parents, emphasizing the critical role they play in shaping their children’s futures.
Fredouse, known for his unwavering commitment to education and child development, seized the opportunity to challenge conventional beliefs and raise awareness about the growing issue of parental negligence. With a mission to convey a message that parents may be reluctant to hear, he left an indelible mark on the audience.
In his address, Fredouse stated, “Dear parents, as a friend to little children for over ten years now, I have witnessed parents becoming disheartened by the outcomes of their hard work. It is crucial for parents to understand that, beyond the payment of fees and the purchase of textbooks, there is a profound need to invest time and attention in their child’s development.”
Fredouse underscored the concerning decline in morality and the surge in indiscipline among today’s youth. He made it clear that the blame should not fall solely on technology but rather on those who introduced it prematurely to their children. He argued, “Today, to gain some personal time, we introduce our children to tablets long before they turn one. Is it any surprise that they become addicted? We must accept our role in this.”
The educator’s message struck a chord as he implored parents to prioritize their children’s well-being. He challenged their assumptions, stating, “Most of you think you know your children, but to tell you the truth, you know more about your phone or work than you know your children.” He emphasized the importance of instilling morals and principles, which would serve as a guide for children as they navigate life beyond their parents’ immediate supervision.
As children transition into their own spaces, Fredouse reminded parents that the values and principles instilled over the years would be put to the test. He asked, “Can your ward stand that test?”
Fredouse’s impactful speech has ignited conversations on parenting and child development across Ghana. His nomination for the Ghana Teacher Prize in 2023 highlights his commitment to transforming education and empowering parents to take a more active role in their children’s lives.
In a world where technology often competes for attention, Fredouse’s words serve as a stark reminder of the power parents hold in shaping the moral compass of future generations. His call for action resonates as a wake-up call for parents to invest not only in their child’s education but also in their character and values.
Fredouse’s message is a timely reminder to parents of their responsibility to their children. In today’s fast-paced world, it is easy to get caught up in work and other commitments. However, it is important to make time for children and to be involved in their lives. Only then can parents ensure that their children grow up to be well-rounded and responsible adults.
As the countdown to the 2023 Ghana Teacher Prize continues, Fredouse’s influence continues to grow, leaving an indelible mark on the landscape of education and his impact on child development in its entirety.
