En­sure kids’ safety dur­ing the long De­cem­ber hol­i­day

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Schools have closed for the De­cem­ber hol­i­day, which hap­pens to be two months. This is too much time for stu­dents to be idling around. Par­ents ought to be on the look­out and en­sure their chil­dren don’t en­gage in drug and sub­stance abuse and early sex. They should be keen to pre­vent un­nec­es­sary con­se­quences such as early preg­nan­cies and ad­dic­tion. They should not only mon­i­tor their move­ment but also the peo­ple they as­so­ci­ate with. Peer pres­sure is real and may lead their chil­dren to en­gag­ing in ac­tiv­i­ties that will neg­a­tively af­fect their ed­u­ca­tion and lives.
