Let’s Chat Mums holds second edition of forum
Following the success of its first edition held on May 29, 2017, La Pax, a Lagos-based project management company, is set to host the second edition of Let’s Chat Mums forum on Sunday, July 2.
The event starts at 2:00 and holds at Seven8 Children Playground, 138, Adebayo Doherty Street, Amiralty Way, Lekki Phase 1. “It is imperative for mothers to know how to cope with the challenges of raising children in the 21st Century,” said Emem Nwogwugwu, whose company is organising the forum.
Nwogwugwu said the forum would also address topics such as safe use of technology and social media by children, balancing academics and extracurricular activities, avoiding parental pressure etc.
Speaking during the first edition of the forum, Nwogwugwu enjoined mothers to rise beyond their insecurities and give their children the best of upbringing that would mould them into better persons in future.
She said:” Our insecurities are not supposed to hold us down but should be a source of motivation to break through those strong holds. When we know better, we do better.
“In spite of what women go through on their parenting journey, we can rise up and bring up excellent humans, who will identify their gifts through our love and guidance to make their world a better place.”
“We know better not to allow our kids speak rudely to our domestic workers and people in general, but they watch us closely. They will do what we do, not only what we say. We know better to teach them the act of giving at an early age. We are not coming to raise perfect kids. There is no such thing as perfect human beings.
“We want kids who have empathy and a sense of responsibility in their lives and their environment. We want kids who will own their actions and be responsible for their decisions in life, people who understand consequences and benefits, people who have a balanced way of thinking.
“We are here because of love. The world needs love. Despite the parental competition in the world, we are hoping to bring up balanced confident and loving people who will be faithful leaders of tomorrow. “
