Our homes are dreadful dens

We live in a society characterised by social ills such as rape, killings, as well as drug and alcohol abuse.

The worst part is that these social ills are committed by adults who should be custodians of good moral values. It’s shocking to hear of madalas raping their grandkids and young men shamelessly raping their gogos. Our homes have been turned into dreadful dens where men roar and attack their wives and children for no reason. It’s our sole responsibility as a nation to build a healthy society that will raise healthy children. Today, young boys and girls are drug addicts because of the quarrels they witness between their parents. It’s our responsibility as parents to teach our kids the right values. We should bear in mind that these children are our future leaders.

Today’s kids lack respect for adults because they drink booze and smoke with them in taverns. Adults need to serve as moral compasses and show direction to the lost born-free generation.
