It is one of the things that you can bequeath to them. As a result, parents need to demonstrate a greater care in the expansion and maturation of their youngsters. Parents should provide employees with proper training and make sure they are upstanding individuals. It is required of parents to provide your children a strong emotional foundation and affection in addition to a solid education so that they may get off to a healthy start in life. Parents should be supported and encouraged to form healthy routines. They ought to work hard, keep up with the latest fashion trends, be tolerant, and have a willingness to help other people (Penn, 2022).

The majority of young people will not reach measurable success unless their parents assist them in preparing for their children’s future growth and development. Because of this, parents should be engaged in the decision-making process over which vacant oil to choose for their children. They are to maintain communication with the school in order to guarantee that their children grow up to be responsible members of society.

Like in every human endeavour, the researcher encountered slight constraints while carrying out the study. Insufficient funds tend to impede the efficiency of the researcher in sourcing for the relevant materials, literature, or information and in the process of data collection, which is why the researcher resorted to a limited choice of sample size. More so, the researcher simultaneously engaged in this study with other academic work. As a result, the amount of time spent on research will be reduced.

Moreover, the case study method utilized in the study posed some challenges to the investigator including the possibility of biases and poor judgment of issues. However, the investigator relied on respect for the general principles of procedures, justice, fairness, objectivity in observation and recording, and weighing of evidence to overcome the challenges.
