Evolve SA by protecting our children

2016-06-07 06:00

CHILDREN represent immense hope towards a greater future within a sometimes deteriorating present society.

A new birth is truly a perfect depiction of humanity deserving yet another chance at virtuous living.

Every child therefore has a human right to be loved, which will offer a safe and secure environment where they are taught right and wrong and how to distinguish between the two once they have reached a level of reasoning.

It is of utmost importance to evolve our nation by protecting the future. It is then also important to raise awareness amongst parents or parental figures.

Children that are raised in severely dysfunctional homes where they may very well be abused are often extremely vulnerable and tend to resort to juvenile crime, prostitution and substance abuse.

Protection, by means of awareness against these self-destructing acts is a child’s human right.

Active children’s community development organisations are highly commended for their constant endeavours in changing what we know to be, our future.

As Walt Disney once said, “that’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up”.

We do tend to easily forget the psychological vulnerability that comes with being a child and the role that our surrounding environments played in moulding us into who we now are.
