Things need to change

2016-09-21 06:00

RIP South Africa. You went soft on discipline. You raised the cost of living so high that both parents are always at work, rather than spending time with their children.

You took God out of schools. Parents are told they can’t discipline their children. Teachers are prevented from disciplining children in schools.

Well done South Africa. You shall reap what you sow, and we have lost a whole generation and turned them into selfish, disrespectful brats who have no respect for people, property and authority.

Things need to change.

What happened to the old days when children were fearful and respectful of their elders?
