How To Become “Wayward” In The Eyes Of Ghanaian Parents

Ghanaian parents expect that you respect them and their wishes no matter what. They train you to be good adults of the society but when you start to question things they ask you to do, all hell will break lose.

They will quote Ephesians 6:1 to you that the Bible says children should obey their parents and will forget about verse 4 which says that parents should not push their kids into anger.

Anyways, here are 6 things that will cause you to be seen as “wayward” or “stubborn” in the eyes of a Ghanaian parent.

What your parents interpret this as: You have either decided to connive with their enemies to bring shame to your household or you are being used as a vessel for their enemies so your family will be attacked. Either way, they will not allow it to happen so they threaten you the best way they can. It’s either you go to church or they’re done with you. No more paying your bills, you won’t eat from the house, they’ll not do anything again for you. You’re on your own.
