Abstain from certain things now that you are home
YEN.com.gh reached out to an educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi, who advised the fresh SHS graduates to stay away from activities that could put their development at risk.
"Social media has become a powerful influence among the youth. All manner of things happen on those platforms. It is important for children to stay away from negative social media activities such as taking and posting revealing videos and pictures, insults and abuse.

They should avoid going out with friends to nightclubs, poolsides, beaches, etc. Over the years, these outings have proven to be life-threatening"
Rather, he urged them to focus their time and energy on trying to develop themselves through training and skills acquisition.
"IT has become important and indispensable in this generation. Therefore, they should use the period to train themselves in IT. They can watch YouTube tutorials, or go for classes.
The awaiting-result period is the time for the children to get closer to their parents or guidance to learn petty home skills such as cooking, scrubbing, washing, weeding, and other home-maintenance skills, which they might not have learnt while in school," he told YEN.com.gh.
