MONROVIA- The former Assistant Director for Teacher Education of the Ministry of Education (MOE), Mr. Fernando Gbozah, has urged Parents and guardians in the country to be good role models for their Children, since they are have the strongest and most important influence on their children.

He said each day, parents have the opportunity to move their families’ health in the right direction and shape their behaviors in positive ways.

Speaking over the weekend at program marking the celebration of the Gala Anniversary and Founder Day of the Jessie Wah King Orange House Center for Early Learning, held in the Old Road Community in Sinkor, Mr. Gbozah noted that, parents serve as a role models not only through direct interactions with their children, but through the examples they set with their attitude and behavior within the family and in the outside world.

According to him, each day, parents have the opportunity to move their families’ health in the right direction and shape their behaviors in a positive way. He added a child’s relationship with his/her parents or caregiver can be one of the most important that they’ll have in their life.

“As parents, you are your child’s first teacher, and your actions often say much more than the words you use, If you live your life in a way that reflects your values and what is important to you, then what you say and what you do will match up,” he said .

Mr. Gbozah expressed that as children develop; they need guidance on an increasingly complex array of issues.

He added that they can share more of the choices and decision-making inherent in their own lives to offer as examples.

He stressed that, by displaying moral and ethical behaviors, parents can also impart values which can counter the negative influences children may receive from their peers or media.

The responsibility of being a role model can also encourage parents to better themselves, for instance, parents who try to resolve their job dissatisfaction may find out that they serve as constructive examples of change.

He, however, admonished children to be respectful to the parents and guardians.

For her, the principal of the institution, Madam Patience King, disclosed that she will continue to provide Liberian children with quality education.

She asserted that quality education is fundamental to Liberia’s progress and prosperity.

She noted that, quality education is also a key priority for Jessie Wah King Orange House for Early Learning and to the realization of children’s right to education.
