I had wish my children stays with me – Charles Oputa
Charles Oputa popularly dubbed as Charly Boy, admitted that children are trained differently as a result of their nature and condition of birth, which he said while describing his relationship with his children particularly his daughter who was recently married.
He stated that he felt his children could stay with him forever but it is natural that they have to create their family as well. But he had a wonderful relationship with his children and gave them a good upbringing and often reminded them of the family tradition of being themselves all the time.
He described his son-in-law as a gentleman, considerate and thoughtful and his parents as people of pedigree and he wishes the couple a happy married life.
He also admitted that there are different strokes for different folks. I guess that’s the joy of parenting because not every kid would turn out the way you want him or her to. Some are late starters, while some are early birds.”
“All my children have a bit of me in all of them and that’s only natural. I didn’t intentionally make it that way by conditioning their minds towards anything. I always tell my children to stay true to whom they really are, chase their dreams and be independent. I also tell them not to neglect the values and principles that we hold sacred in the Oputa family. I do whatever I want to do, and not what anybody tells me to. I expect that my children are going to be the same way. As long as it is a positive thing and it makes them happy, I would encourage them. I am their father and friend.”
