Be Positive To Children: Kuridrani

Negative remarks passed on by parents to their children should be put to a stop because this hinders their success in life, says Litiana Kuridrani.

While addressing the public at the Miss Youth North carnival in Labasa on Friday, the director of Centre for iTaukei said parents should instead learn to speak prophetically to their children.

“To all parents you need to listen to your children, your children are coming up with issues that affect their life,” Ms Kuridrani said.

“And we should always encourage and support them in pursuing their dreams.”

The mother of Wallabies and Brumbies rugby player, Tevita Kuridrani, she said the society norm of pushing young people into fields parents deemed viable should be put to a halt.

“When my son Tevita told me he wanted to play rugby, I was so disappointed, I did not want him to do rugby, I thought, he would do medicine or law but later on I realised that it was against his wish,” Ms Kuridrani said.

“When I opened that door for him to go play rugby, he excelled in many ways and I know that he will continue to excel whether he plays for Brumbies or Wallabies in whatever part of the World he plays in.”

She said the support young people got from their parents ensured a way forward for them.

Ms Kuridrani is urging youths to find their purpose in life and work towards it.

“I would like to tell that all youths that you are here with a purpose whether you are in the village, you come from the islands and whether you’re here tonight (Friday night) your life on the earth has to be on a purpose,” Ms Kuridrani said.

“I personally believe that your purpose is within your reach and it’s within the choices that you make.”

She said education was an important way of ensuring that you find your purpose.

“We have to concentrate on going to school whether its formal, vocational or informal education to help us find purpose.”
