Owoseni Olamide, a Senior Secondary School Two student at Landmark College, Ikorodu, has traced students misbehaviour to their homes.

According to her, students who bully others are likely from abusive homes.

Owoseni said this during her presentation at the ongoing leadership training organised for aspiring prefects in the school.

“There are a lot of challenges students are facing, especially in this our generation. And there are many ways of handling them,” Owoseni said.

She added, “A lot of students have peer pressure. There is this ability for your peers to influence your decision. Another problem is disrespect from the students. Some students are disrespectful. It might not be their fault. Charity begins at home. If you have an abusive parent, there is this tendency that the student too will be abusive.”

Owoseni’s insight emphasises the potential impact of home life on student conduct within the school setting. By drawing attention to these connections, she highlights the need for a comprehensive approach to addressing student behaviour that considers broader social and familial influences.

She emphasized the importance of understanding the root causes of student misbehaviour rather than solely addressing its manifestations.

The annual leadership programme handled by Dr Nelson Ayodele, the CEO of Standard Mandate International (SMI), is aimed at equipping the SS2 students for different prefectship positions.
