THE FIRST ever Trust Bank Parents' Forum is expected to come on this Saturday, November 3, 2007.
The programme is being organized by 2M Success Associates and The Parent Magazine in collaboration with the Ministry of Women and Children's Affairs with the Trust Bank as a major sponsor.
The programme forms part of The Parent Magazine's programme to promote effective parenting as a central vocation for families as well as introduce acquisition of effective parental and mild training skills to parents and teachers.
In an interview with CITY & BUSINESS GUIDE, the Chief Executive Officer of 2M Success Associates, Abdel-Manan Abdel-Rahman enumerated challenges facing parents today, and said it is unfortunate some parents do not have time for their wards.
He added that the situation is having a negative effect on child training.
The CEO stated that poor educative programmes on TV, youth violence, general indiscipline, low level of academic performance among others are the result of poor parenting.
He therefore called on corporate Ghana to support parenting programmes so as to assist families to acquire skills and obtain creative future leaders for this country.
The forum, which will attract resource persons such as clinical psychologists, educationists, child development consultants, family relations experts and time management experts, will treat topics including balancing work and home life, how to assist in developing your child's creativity, healthy eating, child development and what parents/teachers should know.
The programme is on the theme, "Nurturing Leaders for National Development: the Role of Home and School".
A cross-section of parents expressed joy over the programme as it will assist in promoting good training for their wards.
