Talking about societal development and correcting societal ills is nearly impossible without looking at the family system. Simply because any society is a reflection of its family system.
And this is no exaggeration. Imagine if you can a world without families…which technically is impossible, because the first social community in a child’s life is family. Regardless of structure; this is where he most often imbibes the character and values that will become a crucial part of his identity as an adult
Now because children ensure the continuous lifecycle of any society, the quality of their upbringing is very vital. As the effect is seen in different aspects of the society…be it social or economic development.
This naturally puts a lot of pressure on families. To get it right. Because parenting is a learning curve for both parents and children; this territory comes with its own fair share of mistakes. The most effective families are those who acknowledge and learn from their mistakes by mostly working together as a unit. The family is where the child learns values, coping skills in challenging situations, how to wade through relationships, how to be consistent, how to develop financial literacy and so much more which generally impacts on his contributions to the society.
With increasing cases of child abuse and molestations, poor social skills, mental health cases, drug addictions, poverty and ineffective intervention systems, there is a need to equip families with the right skills towards short-term and long-term goals.
This June on the 18th, in Lagos, Nigeria; WellBabyNG presents – a program designed to create a “no-judgement” sharing, interactive, learning and teaching experience where all participants will be equipped with the right tools needed to make the family a conducive environment for positive growth and development.
