"Children Are the Reward of Life" African Proverb
"The H3O ART of LIFE" TV Show: "Family Matters: The Role of the Parents" is the subject of today's H3O Art of Life Blog. Fellow Omni-U Faculty members Wayne Sebamurti Gentry and Dr. Asantewaa Oppong Wadie join me, Dr. Gloria Latimore Peace, in a discussion, the purpose of which was/is to clarify parenthood.
Parenthood is viewed, herein, from an Africentric perspective- first-as a role, i.e., function, then as a community of persons and not merely two biological parents of opposite genders. According to the way of thinking of our ancestors, "It takes a village to raise a child." Thus, the adults of the Village must recognize that it is the responsibility of all of us to serve as the custodians of our children. Honing our parenting skills is a necessary prerequisite to assuring the success of our mission.
We invite you and your family members of all ages to view- as well as to share widely, "Family Matters: The Role of the Parents", Featuring: Wayne Sebamurti Gentry and Dr. Asantewaa Oppong Wadie. It is strongly suggested that you prepare yourselves to take notes. Q&A sessions will undoubtedly follow.
