Veteran Mzansi actress Connie Chiume has taken to social media to offer a bit of advice to parents. The actress who starred on the movie Black Panther, has cautioned parents to stop living their dreams through their children.
The mother of three took to Twitter to warn parents about telling their children what to study but to rather guide them. The star just wants to see children make their own choices when it comes to education. Connie said:
"Let your children study what they want! Let them become whatever it is they want to become!!! Stop living your dreams through your children! Guide them, show them options but the choice is not yours to make!"
Many tweeps agreed with Connie, who plays the role of Mam' Sonto on popular telenovela Gomora. Check out some of their comments below:
"Well said Mam’ Connie. Thank you for this."
"I fully agree, but I think it comes from a good place. Parents don't want to see their children suffering. Some professions out there aren't progressive, your life remains stagnant even when you have it."
"True. I hate what I studied and it is painful to do what you are not passionate about."
"I'm sorry but most black parents will swear at you if you tell them this."
"So true ma."
