Am not a teacher but i think teaching nowaday children is one daunting task. I don't want to sound as protecting the school adminstrations, but as a parent, i ve attended those school meetings/open days/clinics or whatever some call them, you realise teachers wield no power over our kids. Touch some of those kids and you'll regret taking career in teaching. Recently, a teacher found pupils viewing some nudes from a fone (iphone 4s) confiscated it, the pupil-owner got angry took her bag in a huff and left the school, took a public transport home, within 2 hrs both the parents were at school fuming and screaming, demanding an explanation on how the school could allow their kid to take public transport home. The teacher tried to explain what had transpired lakini the parents defended the kid, saying they gave her the fone and it should be given back to her immediately. Sasa niambie kama huyo mwalimu ako na nguvu ya ku-discipline any other pupil in that school. Its ok for a parent to protect his/her child but i think we are over doing it, the kids know that hence becoming arrogant, reckless and ill mannered. We 've also left to house-technicians/house-helps the major roles of parenting. Lets be role models to our children, much freedom must be curtailed, as its dangerously misused na tena marafiki ujue ni akina nani. God help us.
