Sometimes ago,I was on an earpiece listening to a radio programme and one of the discussant explained and gave a brief description of what microwave parenting is all about.
The usage of the word microwave wowed me and I put it across on my timeline if some of us are aware of this.
I looked at my post now and I see the reason why I should explain what is all about in accordance to how the person that used it made such assertion.
There is a common saying which states that:
”There is no bad child,we only have bad parents”
No one could deny and look away from the present challenges the world is facing presently with the Millenia loosing their grip over the affairs of their life’s.
Young minds that ought to be the engine room and the facilitators of a better society are constantly engaging in acts that keeps us apart.
I looked at the age of the criminals arrested recently for killing an Igbo businessman yesterday and I felt bad.
They are all young to be thinking of commuting crime just for a promise of ₦2million.
I cringed and I felt bad how young minds that ought to be productive in adding values to themselves are carried away by becoming criminals just because they are desperate to make money.
Back to the issue of microwave partners and microwave parenting.
Microwave partners are partners who are not prepared practically to handle the rigour and responsibilities of being married.
This can only be seen in the way and manner that they handle their marital relationship with the display of ego,pride and insensitivity to whatever that has to do with their relationship.This always shows in their behaviour, attitude, characters and responsiveness to anything that concerns their marital relationship.
They offer nothing but constant problem to the sanctity of what Marital relationship stand for.
They are unprepared but they desire the best in their relationship without being ready to pay the sacrifice.
Same definition or tagging also applies to microwave parenting.One can see that the behaviour, attitude and characters on display by youth of today is a simple confirmation of the weakness parenting has been subjected to in this age.
Many parents can be observed by all standards that they are ill-prepared for the task of parenting which has to do with the way and manner they respond to giving their children good upbringing.
Microwave parenting defies social class and status.The rich are affected and the poor are also affected.
It is quite funny that some parents are supposed to be sent back to their parents to complete or revisit some of the training they missed or forgotten while they are growing up.
The effect of microwave partners and microwave parenting cannot be overlooked.It shows in the reality of the present society we find ourselves and we are all suffering for it with young minds loosing their grips to criminalities.
When you have people that are not prepared or people that are partially prepared for relationship and parenting but they desire to have good results,one could easily ascribed them as been a microwave.
I believe I have been explanatory enough in breaking down what microwave partners and microwave parenting are all about.
Kindly appraise yourself if you belong to anyone presently.
