TEACHING CHILDREN CHRISTIAN VALUES:- ROLE OF PARENTS
Respect, kindness, honesty, courage, perseverance, self-discipline, compassion, generosity, dependability. Most parents want to instill these kinds of values in their children. Doing so will protect them from potentially negative societal influences and lay the foundation for them to become good citizens. We're not fulfilling our responsibilities as parents if we don't try to instill solid morals in our children. Of course, this is often easier said than done. Teaching values takes time —a scarce commodity for many parents today. “Our increasingly competitive economy is creating an environment where Mom and Dad are spending longer hours at work and fewer hours with their children,” observes Gary Hill, Ph.D., director of Clinical Services at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. As a result, outside influences like peer pressure and the entertainment industry—through the Internet, television, movies, video games and music—are having a greater effect on children, shaping their perspectives more than ever before.
Redeemer's International School is a co-educational school founded on sound biblical principles and practices. This is combined with global best practices in teaching, learning and administrative styles to develop our pupils into global citizens who are God fearing and capable of influencing their communities positively for the Lord.
The school is under the direct supervision of Christ the Redeemer's School Management (CRSM), which is the school controlling organ of The Redeemed Christian Church of God. Its affiliation with the church is therefore not merely in name as the Board of Governors and practices of the school reflect the position of the Church on the school as a veritable medium for sound Christian education.
In the course of her close to a score and five years of existence, the school has churned out several graduates who are making waves in various fields of endeavours. Just recently, an alumnus of the school graduated with a first class in Neuro-Surgery at the prestigious King's College University in the United Kingdom. Were the purpose of this to do a roll call of our ex-pupils who are riding high, we probably would need a 500 pages novel size book to write their various exploits and achievements.
