Jaji- Usomi si kigezo cha kuwa mzazi mzuri

Intelligence and education do not guarantee good parenting, a senior High Court judge has said.

Clever people can make ‘absolutely rotten parents’ and many who fail academically give their children a ‘wonderful upbringing’, Mrs Justice Parker added.

In 2006 researchers from Bristol University found social workers had negative attitudes towards parents with learning disabilities – and sometimes broke up loving families with no good reason. 

Mrs Justice Parker’s warning against assuming the best-educated will make the best parents came during a custody hearing involving a mother with a learning disability. 

The judge said: ‘Learning disability is not in itself a reason for a parent not looking after a child.

‘Many clever people make absolutely rotten parents and many people who are intellectually impaired … are warm and caring and provide children with a wonderful upbringing. No one is a perfect parent.’
