TOPIC: Influence of working parents on the Nigerian family
Nowadays, because of the harsh economy, and in order to be able to provide for their families, most parents go out to work and earn money. Many parents cannot take good care of their children because they are at work most of the time. The children are either left at home with house-helps, or they are taken to day-care centers or playgroup houses. In some rare cases, the children are taken to foster homes. A foster home is a place where some people take care of children of other families, under certain conditions, for a number of years. Thus, children of working parents may grow up without adequate care and attention, and may turn out to become depressed or wayward, because their parents were busy earning money at the time when they should have taken very good care of them.
