Don’t use your life savings to raise your kids -Actress tells parents

Nollywood actress and singer, Dayo Amusa has advised parents against using their entire life savings to cater for their children’s needs.

Sharing her perspective on sustainable parenting practices, Amusa believes that many parents neglect their own well-being while prioritising their children’s care.
According to her, this could result in children distancing themselves from their parents, perceiving them as no longer on equal footing.

She recommended that while parents strive to uplift their children, they should also focus on personal growth and development.

She said: “Dear Parent!!! One mistake you should never make as a parent is raising your kids with all your life savings to eventually get so much exposure that they won’t want to stoop low to living around you.

“Upgrade yourself as you upgrade your kids. Plan your future so you won’t have your kids too far from you..
Lately, having all your kids abroad looks like an achievement until your old age sets in. That is when you will know that sending you money is not as important as having them around you… That’s when you will understand that life’s fulfillment is beyond money but quality of time spent with your grown up children and grand children…

“I’ve had an Uncle who raised all his families abroad, died at 78 and none of his kids came home to bury him and give him the last respect/honour.

“Men! This is not a matter of marrying many wives … It’s about being intentional with your old age plans… And if marrying more than one wife is your strategic plan, ensure you execute it with wisdom.
Parents seem to cater so much for their kids that they forget themselves in the process. Do not forget yourself in the mathematical equation of life…

“Always put yourself into consideration… This old age we are talking about is nearer than we think…You matter a lot too.

“May God grant us the opportunity to live long in sound health and more wealth.. #jmvwithdayoamusa.”
