GIVING CHILDREN A PROMISING AND BETTER LIFE

The global economic recession and poverty, which have affected Third World countries most, have resulted in the rampant abandoning of babies in gutters, pit latrines, bushes and remote places. Many mothers are giving up their babies for adoption. Some end up selling their babies or deliberately kill them. This inhuman act shows that some children are born into incapable hands.

If one does not really needs a child, why should parents bring them into the world to suffer? Training and caring for children, in terms of feeding, clothing, education and health have never been a simple task. It is better for parents to prevent unwanted pregnancy, than to give birth to a child to become menace to society.

An Eastern University in America, conducted a study on the impact made on children by various forces in the society. The study revealed that 31 percent of the influence on a child was attributed to his years, 16 percent came from his school and other organisations. While 53 percent of the impact on his life came from his home.


The duty of bringing up a child, is surely the toughest task in the world and quite frankly, it takes knowledge and wisdom to raise up a child. The inability of parents to take proper care of their children have caused many children roaming on the streets, especially in Asia, Africa and South America.
