Ghanaian business mogul Mr. Daniel McKorley, famed as McDan, has got on the wrong side of social media trolls after revealing how he treats his children at home.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for McDan Group of companies said in a recent interview that he made one of his sons work as a security guard and cleaner to instill discipline in him.
McDan explained that he uses diverse methods to bring up each of his 10 children in order to shape them into an all round adult.
One of such methods was letting his a brilliant son of his stay home after completing Senior High School just to work as a security guard in on of his many companies.
“My son for instance was supposed to go to the university but I said he should sit at home for one year. I told him to go and start work in my company as a security guard. He saw the trend of learning how to be disciplined. I always teach my children how to serve because they are sports personalities, and all of them play tennis.”
He defended that he made his son pass through those stressful paths in order to make him understand the importance of serving.
McDan further said that the boy got promoted to a cleaner after a few months of being a security and that taught him priceless life lessons.
“The boys play football. He started work in my company as a Security guard, he moved as a cleaner. Right now he is a big boy. So for me, teaching discipline is not the macho type of discipline but the soft skill discipline,” he said on JoyPrime TV.
Social media users are however criticising the rich man’s method of parenting. They argue that letting a child suffer may have psychological effects on him, especially when they know their parents are rich but refuse to support.
One pointed to the fact that the child might have also picked up some negative lessons because of the environment he was pushed in.
Do you agree with them?
