Oyemade said for every punishment for a child, there must be a positive motive without inflicting injury or using revengeful approach.

She also encouraged parents to be social media conscious and grow with the changing trends to keep abreast with social media language lifestyle.

“Nowadays, children are more exposed to the trends on social media. So, every parent should learn the best form of communication to use with children to get maximum cooperation from them.

“It, therefore, means that every parent must also grow especially on the different platforms of the social media, to monitor and educate children on consequences of various actions.

“If children get to know the consequences of their actions early enough, it will help to reduce some cases such as child molestation and access to negative internet vices,” she said.

The president of the association, Mrs Jumoke Fabode, while giving thanks to God for the celebration, urged mothers to bring up their children under God’s guidance and control for further growth of the church, society and the nation in general.

She also enjoined members to be active ahead of the  2023 general elections by getting their Permanent Voter Cards.

Fabode called on mothers to always intercede for the peace of the country and growth of the church.

NAN reports that part of the activity to mark the event was a praise session by popular female saxophonist, BeeJay Sax.
