Introducing the “Beautiful Parenting in Africa” Series – By Meme Boham

Meme BohamHi,

My name is Meme Boham. I am an over 30-year old mother, wife and teacher.

Education and childcare found me in 2006 after I read a profound book titled, ‘Maria Montessori – her life and works’ by E.M Standing. I couldn’t believe what I was reading and so I went to study Montessori Education to experience it first hand; that was when I began to see myself as a Childcare Scientist (cheesy I know).

For me, the discovery of the child’s potential is a science; the things they learn with little or no assistance is tremendous and when I see a child, I am excited about the potential they have if given the right response. In every school I have worked in, I have tried to educate the adults of the great responsibility we have towards the child and this has been my mission since. I however realised that in the schools where I work, I could reach out to the parents there, so to reach to a wider audience, I began writing.

After studying Montessori, Childcare as well as Education, and having worked in education since 2006, I still consider myself a novice. I learn everyday and as I learn, I like to share.

On this platform, I will sharing my perspectives with Africa. I hope that the readers will get information on parenting, ideas on what to do with your child, interesting stories and personal experience that will encourage, enlighten and most of all, I hope you will have fun while doing this. Enjoy the read and welcome on board.

It’s 2015 and I look forward to a great future with Konnect Africa 🙂
