    Adults don’t know how to handle anger and it’s not just the parents….ministers, teachers but yet we expect children to just know.

    Home down-bringing? School environment? Some adults obviously “involved”, but either sleeping; willfully blind; or just unable to connect/ communicate with our young people.

    Adults communicate with these children at home, at church and school. In the final analysis the children have to decide. Unfortunately we live in an imperfect world where children like adults are influenced by their peers and relatives. Whenever they step out of line we need to punish them.

      Many adults too got communication issues with each other.

    All the teachers seem to drive to school,there are no conductors and policemen do not seem to take buses any more and add bad behaviour to that and you get these results.
