The Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta has today advised parents to stop putting too much pressure on their children to acquire degrees and examinations, but instead focus on taking care of children’s talents under new system in which educative goals are structured to discover and support the unique abilities of learners.
The new education system provides substantial assurance for Kenyan children and enables learners to advance their essential talents and capabilities,’he said.
We pressurize our children to pass exams and to obtain University degrees. Our children do not have the privilege to grow as children,’said Uhuru Kenyatta.
The Kenyan president spoke all this during the grand opening of the third National Conference on Curriculum Reforms which took place at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).
He said all children have different talents and it’s the parent’s responsibility to reveal it and nurture it.
Let’s not get weary in nurturing the skills and talents of our children, he added by urging the parents not to impose professions on their children mostly courses like medicine, even when a child is allergic to blood.
He said many parents do not have time to recognize the capability of their children even when they would turn out to be popular artistes, musicians or sports people.
As parents, we should make preparations for our children to become the next Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, the Kenyan president referred to the renown technology entrepreneurs who worked so hard to solve problems for challenges of humanity.
