Where are the morals and values!

It seems as if the morals and values in the society escaped through the window immediately we opened doors for the digital lifestyle.

Respect of elders is a past thing and the adults are not sparing the children too in their evil plans. As long as the child doesn’t belong to them, they don’t care what they are doing with the child.

Love of money and lust has contributed a lot to the death of values in the society. People are willing to do anything no matter how bad it is as long as they get what they want.

Will we ever enjoy the life where people respected each? Life that was full of collaboration and team work towards goals to success.

I would like to imagine that the life will are in is just a dream and soon I will wake up to the reality, but no, it is what is happening day in day out!

Our kids are rotten, obedience and discipline are no where to be traced. Adults have ceased to be role models, elders who used to advise the young are no more. Where are we heading too?

Are you experiencing the same in your country or yours is different? I would love to hear it. Kindly leave a comment.

The girls who went missing

The stay at home for school going children has brought a big problem to teenagers’ parents. No matter how much they try to keep them safe, it becomes difficult as most of the time parents are out to make ends meet to better their families.

Teenagers are taking advantage of the situation. They are having enough time to do what they like most.

The worst comes with the use of cellphones which are used to make all the plans. To make it worse, the use of social media where these kids find people who are ready to prey on them. Without their knowledge, they find themselves in awkward situations which sometimes became very difficult to come out of.

Dating sites, nude pictures, drug use and other vices are introduced to them through the social groups. They do it too well that by the end of some chats, the kid is lured to all the evil plans.

I don’t demonize the social media, these phones are used for important communication too, like teachers do communicate through the class WhatsApp groups. Assignments, and online classes are done using the same.

The question is, how and where do we draw the line?

Six teenage girls in Nairobi were not spared either. They had been missing for about a week until yesterday when they were found.

As much as our girls are not innocent, they are still minors and those who are taking advantage on them should be brought to book!

Let’s protect the girl child!
