This, he said, would help prevent the children from engaging in deviant practices which could ruin their future.
Mr Danquah made the call in an address read on his behalf at the launch of the Silver Jubilee celebration of Queen Jane’s School at Buade near Nungua in Accra on Friday.
The four-month celebration is on the theme: “Queen Jane at 25, Quality Education Our Aim, Our Goal - A Shared Responsibility’.
Some of the activities planned for the celebration are health walk, donation to orphanages, career guidance/counselling, workshop for teachers, fun games, quiz competition, clean-up exercises, speech day and thanksgiving service. It would be climaxed on October 7, 2017.
Mr Danquah said ineffective parental controls were contributing to the high incidence of immorality such as cyber fraud, drug abuse, examination malpractices and other negative tendencies among the youth.
He stressed the need for parents to take full responsibility in the upbringing of their children and desist from shirking their responsibility.
Nii Addo Sasraku III, the Nungua Addogonno Mantse, said emotional development of children was very vital to their growth and development and urged parents to provide them with all their needs.
He commended teachers and the school authorities for their relentless efforts in ensuring the proper training of children in their care to enable them to become useful citizens in their communities.
Alhaji A.B.K. Adams, the Headmaster of the school, said the school established some 25 years ago, had trained many people some of whom were occupying key positions in the country.
The school had scored 100 per cent most of the time and that even in 2010 out of the 42 candidates presented for the Basic Education Certificate Examination 33 scored aggregate 10, he said.
Alhaji Adams counselled the children to be disciplined and take their studies seriously as those were part of the values that would make them better people in future.
