When your child abandons a course you’ve paid for

What you need to know:

  • If your children are still in school, primary or secondary, do you know what they are talented in?
  • Are you aware of your children’s capability such that you would be able to help them choose college or university courses that align with their talent?

Last Saturday, I happened to overhear a group of women discussing their children’s progress in school. One of them narrated how her son had arrived home one day and announced that he had lost interest in the course he was studying at university. The young man, I learnt, was a second-year chemistry student at the University of Nairobi.
