Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Base Dynasty, Dorothy Amuah, has encouraged women to be hands on when it comes to nurturing their children.
After relocating to Ghana, the entrepreneur has realized most Ghanaian parents prefer to leave the nurturing and general upbringing of their children in the hands of the extended family and nannies.
She is against this kind of setting and argues parents should make time for their children no matter how busy they get.
Although swamped with tons of work daily, Dorothy Amuah makes time for her children. “I believe in sharing a meal together whenever we are together and take time to know what’s going on in their lives. I love to take them on drives and enjoy good music with them. We basically make the best out of every situation.
I have realized parenting is different in Ghana. A lot of parents tend to leave their children to be raised by others. But I encourage women to be more hands on in the upbringing and training of their children. Cook for them once in a while and teach them to do household chores even if they are privileged,” she shared in an interview with LJ on Y107.9FM’s Leaderbaord Series hosted on the ‘Myd Morning Radio Show.”
Describing parenting as an amazing experience, the mother of two said, “I do a lot and get busy but parenting is my joy and I highly recommend it. Nothing prepares you for parenting but you just have the feeling it is time to jump in and you do it.”
