The Minister of Women’s Empowerment and the Family, Marie Therese Abena Ondoua, has said parents have a pivotal role to play in the fight against moral decadence in the society.
She made the remark on Sunday, during CRTV’s “Actualite Hebdo” where she was guest.
They were discussing the recurrent trend of immoral publications put online by youths among other subjects on the programme.
The Minister disclosed that they are currently working on a publication which will be used to sensitize parents.
“At this moment, we are in the course of preparing the publication of a document on responsible parenthood…Because everything starts at the level of the family. If parents do not fully play their role…we will find ourselves with situations like this” Marie Therese Abena said.
However, she acknowledged that government has its role to play, before emphasizing that “it’s at the level of the family that everything starts”.
