Conflicts in Africa have taken thousands of children out of school as child-soldiers
It is only a woman that can tell the pain she goes through during child delivery. Some women take rings off from finger to throw at husbands, because of the pain they go through during child birth. After delivery, they take back the ring and put on the finger again. Giving birth to a child isn’t easy, yet there are so many motherless and fatherless children roaming on the streets, especially in Third World Countries, including Africa.
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 care, have never been a simple task. It is better for parents to prevent unwanted pregnancy, than to give birth to a child to become a menace to society. How can a child learn how to read when he or she is far from the classroom?
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 organizations. 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 has caused many children roaming on the streets. The neglected children sometimes grow up to be juvenile criminals and delinquents.
