Since you went softy on discipline, everything changed. The cost of living increased so high that both parents are always forced to be at work, rather than spending time with their children. You took God out of the schools and left them with nothing.
Parents are told they can’t discipline their kids anymore. Teachers are prevented from disciplining learners in schools. There are more rights than responsibilities. Well done South Africa, you have created a whole new future generation for yourself, you shall reap what you sow.
We have lost a whole generation and turned them into selfish, disrespectful brats who have no respect for people and property, or authority! The spirit of Ubuntu has become a thing of the past.
Learning institutions have become breeding grounds for future criminals. Today we see children as young as puppies being trained to be drug pushers. We see people getting burnt in front of the school’s premises. Well done South Africa, well done!
Things need to change. We need the old days where kids were fearful and respectful of their elders, where every elder was a parent to them all. The old South Africa where my neighbour’s kids were mine, what happened to that? Rise South Africa, while there is still time.
Tell us: Do you agree that we should go back to the old ways of disciplining children?
