Why we have so many delinquent children
Today we live in a world that has a vast amount of Science and Technology. Which has polluted the world, although some of the technologies are used by many for good purposes most of it is on becoming. E.g. the Internet can be used to source every information school and work related on the other hand pornography is opened to view anywhere anytime to all, a lot of vile nastiness to corrupt the entire world. How many people lose there lives, lost their love ones over the Internet through chat rooms etc.
These things have caused us to rapidly drift away from the olden days to modern ones. Mediums such as the use of Internet, television, radio and cell phones has taken over our lives. In some instances we need to slow down and turn the pages to see what things used to be like with out these advance technological implementations. Mothers were home with their children growing them up in the right way, showing them morals and values, while the fathers go to work to provide for their family. Generally a child learns 70% of things from his/her mum. Reason is before and after birth their mother is the one they are closest to, during nursing stage and onward ages she is suppose to be the most influential being in their lives, I only mean in the right way.
I know it’s difficult in these hard times that sometimes mothers are forced to go out to work to help with the bills at home especially if it’s a single parent. Although there are those who have husbands and more than enough to go by still wants a job for their own selfish greed not caring about who would be with the children when they get home, who are their friends? What they do in their absence? As a parent you should always make time for your family, not because you drop them off at the nursery or to school you expect the teacher to do everything.
It certainly doesn’t work like that; a child needs his/her parents’ attention in order to be successful in all things. No matter how much the teacher may try to fill that gap. It will always have a hollow until the parents/parent/guardian fill the void.
School violence has been a major issue world wide, when children don’t get the attention home they react in negatives ways. Thus fighting with others may release them thinking that no one else is going to make me feel rejected. Do children become violent and abusive over night? No they adapt these things by what they see and hear in their environment. Most times it comes from home.
So many young girls and boys are engaging in sexual activities that they are not fully mature and ready for. Many teenage girls are getting pregnant; some keep the children, which most times have to struggle to support the child/children, while others do abortions which is wrong. Again I must stress on proper parenting would avoid these issues plaguing our young children.
Then some parents wonder how on earth did my child turn out to be a homosexual, lesbian, juvenile delinquent, rapist, murderer, thief, stripper, prostitute, etc. I guess most times you say I did my best to send him/her to school and work so hard and this is the result. Yes we know you did what you taught was your best, a child needs a lot more than schooling, ballet, basketball and gymnastic classes. They need someone to ask things they don’t know, to feel the love and appreciation especially by the persons who brought them into the world.
The number one issue plaguing delinquent children is working women who have no time to share with their children and fathers who have ran away from their responsibilities.
Mothers and Fathers I urge you to teach your children the right things, be an example don’t let them make the same mistakes you made. Tell your girl children about keeping themselves (virginity) until marriage. Parents know what you do in front your children. Some people have sex in front their children with the faults understanding that he/she is two- three years old and don’t know what we are doing, Don’t do that!! These things spoil children lives. Remember they may not know but they are seeing, we were all born with that evil nature, someone may try to advantage them in a sexual manner an they may not say anything. Why? They saw mummy and daddy doing that, so nothing is wrong with it. Don’t allow them to do what they want in your house you would be breeding brats. Spend quality time with your children make them feel wanted.
If you don’t meet these criteria’s as a parent you should opt to do so after reading this article. Live is not forever do what you can while you can. There will never be another today (Nov/13/2008) so you should make the use of it now.
