Dangers Of Keeping Bad Company

Keeping bad company is very dangerous and it affects us no matter who you are. Below are the dangers of keeping bad company

It is sad to note that many young ones in schools today go out with groups that turn out to be the ones that change their good destiny. The holy book says, show me your friend and I will tell you who you are. A popular proverb also supports this statement when it says: Birds of the same feather flock together. According to the advanced English dictionary, A company is a group of people with a common set of goals and objectives, while a school is a place created in order to acquire knowledge that would make a learner a better and more useful person to himself and others in future.

A company is by choice and not by force. Today, in most of our schools, students select companies without weighing the social, political, economic, and educational gains of such relationships. They end up regretting their actions; examples abound in a society where students from good homes turned into wolves with human skin. A friend of a thief is a thief. A friend of a murderer is a murderer. Therefore it is very important to itemize factors that generate bad company and what can be done to curb and put an end to it. Many factors contribute to the growth of bad groups in schools. Major among them are parents' attitudes to their children at home, wrong societal values, and the cash and carry syndrome in society.

First, most parents fail their God-oriented responsibility to control their children at home. Most parents put their responsibility of managing their children on school teachers who themselves have a lot to do. Furthermore, we are in a society with wrong values, a society where survival of the fittest is the order of the day. In addition, The materialistic state contributes to this. Most bad groups in schools put their focus on material liberation instead of educational liberation. The result is what we are witnessing in schools today. The Dangers of keeping bad company in school are numerous and very damaging to the academic and social souls of the school system, a place expected to be the product of the best brain needs for the development of the country.

Secondly, it brings about the growth of gangsterism in schools, Definition of gangster: A gangster is a member of a group of violent criminals. Third, bad company leads to the poor academic performance of students. This is due to the fact that academically poor students, when they fail, terrorize their teachers. Criminal activities in schools today get their root in bad associations. Here are ways for us to put an end to keeping bad companies in school

  • Cultists should be punished no matter who they are.
  • Teachers and Lecturers: If your school son or school daughter commits an offense, allow him or her to be punished.
  • Occultic students and any student caught abusing drugs should be counseled and suspended so that they will not influence other students.
  • All stakeholders in the field of education must wake up to their responsibility of making sure that bad groups are eradicated from schools; it is in the interest of Everybody.
