Racism

Racism is a system of structuring opportunity and assigning value based on social interpretation of how one looks.

Racism is a social determinant of health especially among adolescence.

The impact of racism can be linked to birth disparities and mental health problem in children and adults.

Experiencing racial discrimination and injustice can take a heavy emotional toll and trigger chronic stress, anxiety, depression, racial trauma.

Our society overlooks black and believe they have minority contribution to history and culture, racism erodes your sense of self worth.

It’s also a thing of the mind many people see themselves as impotent , empty vessels, they already have this kind of image and perception about their personality already, influence of admitting bad interpretation of people about them aggrivates racism.

People also believes that we can’t raise heroes and gaint amongst Africans. People outside this country knows that we are genuis, they have seen our capacity, they are predators their aim is to turn our own ideas to money, since we did not believe in ourselves.

Some of them even subject us to slavery, but it’s never too late we can still take our place, I know we all have visions but let’s bring them to reality, there are also ways we can accomplish them.priortise self help through the following:

°Look for support within your community

Parental influence on child’s career 1

There are no bad children, it’s just that there are some certain negative parental influence on a child’s life/career

The importance of parents in one’s life is quite evident from this eminent quotation.

A child’s development depends on the parental upbringing. No circumstance can overcome the rigidity and sustainability of a child’s upbringing because parent act as a visioneer to their children purpose.

To be honest among African parents only few allow their children to work according to their destined purposes. Some parents are professors, lawyers, doctors , engineer, teacher and they are successful in their career path. Through their experiences and successes they subject their children to follow their paths, by doing this they shift the focus of their children .

Most of these parents monitor their grade , so they decide choices of career for their children.

For instance a child who has good grades in science subjects will be pushed to study science courses in tertiary institution

But no!! It’s wrong you don’t determine a child’s intelligence with A’s . To be honest the child may not even be destined to be in science .

It’s very important for parents to support their children’s career. There is no career that is useless since it can be linked to passion and purpose.

There will always be a particular trademark, signature, that distinguishs everyone from each other

Parent! Please guide your child right ,we are tired of raising miserable adults.
