Parenting dilemma: The Kenyan experience.

Lewis Muli Ngesu and Mutinda Kyule

University of Nairobi.

Scott Theological University .






This article examines the parenting dilemmas that most parents face on a daily basis which is a significant departure from the past where parenting was a community affair.  The current situation is complex with most parents busy at work place and home therefore leaving the young children under the care of house helps and consequently navigating through life on their own. The influence of Television and social media has aggravated the parenting matrix leading to indiscipline and this can be confirmed by the recent report in the media whereby teenagers were nabbed by law enforcement officers engaging in sex, drinking alcohol and abusing drugs on their way home for the school.  Therefore, in the absence of parents the movies children watch, the music videos, the images they download and the online conversations they have on different social media platforms is causing them to think that sex, alcohol and drugs is ‘the new normal’ and for one to fit in, one must partake of the same.


Keywords: Parenting, Dilemma.
