Unsuccessful parenting sets unsuccessful example

I have been meaning to share this for a while and most of the time, I get sidetracked into other stuff. But today, today I will want to share this.

Whenever I have my breakfast in the morning from 7am, I noticed that a number of secondary school students, from SMKDJ, having breakfast at that hour.

Now, normally this would be no shocker. However, what shocks me is that these young people are SMOKING! Young teenage boys and girls in uniforms SMOKING! Appalling!

I find smoking disgusting and that it speaks a large volume of that person's values and attitude towards life. Unfortunately, I don't have high regard for people who smoke. Most of them indignantly potray smoking as macho, cool or as part of the "in" crowd, but only to hide the fact that they are no different than a drug addict. Sad.

When youngs kids start to smoke, it sure show a HELL A LOT ABOUT PARENTING! There's only so much we can do about the bad apples in schools that our children face everyday. There is MORE we CAN do in teaching the right values & being the right example to them so they won't be influenced. Most parents think that going to 1U on a Sat is already fulfilling their duties.

Teachers too ought to also potray the right example. They shouldn't be smoking. Schools should make it strict regulation when hiring teachers. And personally, I feel that schools should impose sacking from schools when they are caught smoking.

When the block is bad, so is the chip.

Have a blast (and save our kids!)
