Nurture2Nature first took off in Lagos. It is an initiative started by Mrs Tolu Edebem to help children and parents achieve a balance. In her words, as a teenager, “I didn’t speak to my mother for a year, labelling her a witch. As a mother now, I see the interaction between my own child and my mother and I begin to wonder, what I was thinking. We have this entitlement attitude [of expecting our desire and pleasure fulfilled]. We each need to work on.”
The event is going to continue in other states across the nation thus, to assist children, parents in nurturing a balance environment.
