A talk show was anchored by mrs sholuade who spoke on the bond that should exist between parents and children. There was questions and answers to the audience about family and parenting which was a great interactive session. She gave parental advice to the parents and guardians in terms of bonding and understanding their children, she also gave advices to the children, urging them to obey their parents and focus on their dreams. She gave examples from her childhood experience and urge the children never to lose focus and always have a determined heart.. Finally she pleaded with the parents never to chose a path for their children and allow them to follow their dreams.

GAME SHOW : How well do you know your child

A game was organized between parents and their children on how well they knew their children. Each parent was made to sit against their child without looking back. The parents and children were to answer questions in a card given to them about each other.
The questions were :

  • what is your child's shoe size
  • How old is your child
  • what is the name of your child's best friend
  • what is the name of your child's English teacher
  • what is the name of your child's favorite colour
  • what is the name of your child's favorite food
  • what is your child's future ambition.

This game was made to test the bonds between parents and children, it was also a method of bringing the parents attention to the children creating a strong bond between them.. It enlightened them more to know what they never knew about their children.

BALLET DANCE

Each child danced gracefully with smiles and happiness that they were been watched by their parents.
