Everybody has been thinking about how to change the world and save it, hence they come out with different ideas and more advanced innovations. But they all forget that they would be no more one day and after their death the children today would be their replacement.

A lot of our attention had not been drawn to the fact that our tomorrow (future) depends on today's children. If the world would be the way we want it to be, then this is the time for us to take a critical look at the Child today.

The untold fact is that the Child today is the future President, Minister, Pastor, Doctor, etc who would be making a decision for the well being of the country. If this is established, then we have a lot of work to do. I am the kind of person who likes to play with children and because of that, they are mostly seen around me.

I usually make a lot of observations when with these little children and I want to use this platform to bring to the notice of other people. Children are usually moved by what they see, hear and are told. I was with some children and one of them stepped and someone's feet mistakenly but something happened that actually surprised me.

The moment that child stepped on the other, the one who was stepped started insulting the other in Fanti as she was crying as "kwasia 3hu etsia me nan do?". Then I told the one crying and insulting the other friend that, if I ever hear her say such word I will beat her and hence will not by toffees for her.

On the other hand, when I asked for who stepped on her foot, the child who did so denied that he isn't the one who did that even though all the children were saying he was the one who did that. I then saw that if this spirit of lying is not taken from him and he grows with it, there will be trouble in the near future. I told him this little child not to do those kinds of things again.

So any moment any of them insults the other, I I called hear is we are going to tell Bra Justice that you are insulting someone. If we actually want to change the world, then we have to start it right away with the children we have now. Let me shift a bit into the Holy Bible when Jesus Christ told his Disciples " verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven"-(Mathew 18:3). People all over the world had been complaining about some unfair behavior of others in the workplace, politics, etc.

Some of these behaviours include lateness, favouritism, bribery and corruption, and others. Even though many NGO's and individuals campaign against these inhuman behaviours, the more they campaign against it, the higher it continues.

As all these people advocate for this behaviour to stop, we all forget that the future belongs to the children we have today. I always say, "IF ANYONE WANTS TO CHANGE THE WORLD TOMORROW, LET HIM CHANGE THE LITTLE CHILD TODAY AND WE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO SEE HOW THE WORLD WOULD BE CHANGED TOMORROW, EVEN IN OUR ABSENCE".

Testing & Contact Tracing We take note of efforts made by government to scale up testing and contact tracing efforts as part of measures to identify and isolate persons who have contracted COVID-19. Concerns about the comprehensiveness of the strategy remain, and we list below related recommendations and those for the broader aims of COVID-19 testing. 1.1. There remains a lack of clarity on the definition of the tertiary contacts category employed in the enhanced contact tracing program. The current understanding is that these individuals are identified not because of their known interactions with secondary contacts, but rather by virtue of their coresidence in localities where index cases reside. It also remains unclear if this extends to primary and secondary contacts. This clarification would allow epidemiologists and statisticians around the nation to evaluate the practical utility of the ..

Building global momentum to introduce sign language in early childhood education

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Get the latest live updates about the Coronavirus Pandemic Early childhood, defined as the period from birth to eight years old, is a time of remarkable growth with brain development at its peak. During this stage, children are highly influenced by the environment and the people that surround them. Early childhood care and education (ECCE) is more than preparation for primary school. It aims at the holistic development of a child's social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs in order to build a solid foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing. ECCE can therefore-nurture caring, capable and responsible future individuals. That's why ECCE is one of the best investments a country can make to promote human resource development, gender equality and social cohesion, and to reduce the costs for remedial programs later. For disadvantaged children, including deaf children, ECCE plays an important role in compensating for the disadvantages in t..

Effective Parenting In The Lockdown Period

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Get the latest live updates about the Coronavirus Pandemic A primary school girl, when asked by her teacher to define family, answered bashfully, "A family is a group of people, made up of father, mother, and children, who are related by blood." Expectant of applause from the class, she continued, "Uncle, aunty, cousin, grandma, and grandpa are also part of the family; they belong to the extended family." The teacher was impressed, the class was awestruck, and they gave the bashful school girl a well-deserved accolade. Aside from being a group of people related by blood, a family is also a chronology of individual stories and experiences. People in a family have a history that spans beyond the declaration of marital vows. The father and mother have individual adventures and ordeal that may have coincidentally merged at a point, even before they decided to become man and wife. The parents of the man and woman equally do. It's a small world, after al..

Protecting ourselves from diseases goes beyond washing hands and wearing a mask. It requires prov..
