Some children have no respect

THE EDITOR, Sir:

It’s a darn shame and disgrace, the way in which some children talk to their parents. They have no manners and respect. They tell their parents any word they feel like telling them. And some of these parents are afraid of their own children, too. They are rude, feisty and disrespectful, even to their grandparents, aunts and uncles!

Furthermore it has been said that ‘the youths of today will be the men and women of tomorrow’. But how can that be, when most of them are listening to the devil’s music, playing and loving the devil’s music 24/7? What kind of tomorrow will that be? If they don’t change from their dirty attitude, it may be a bitter tomorrow. And do you know that many of these young youths are dying more than senior citizens? And they are dying at a rapid rate.

On a different topic. It would take Prime Minister Andrew Holness about 15 minutes of his time to give a shout-out to all the Coaster bus drivers and conductors; to all the taxi drivers and other public passenger transport, who are contaminating Jamaica with filthy music, to desist from doing so. When will the authorities speak out against lewd music in Jamaica? Illegal music in Jamaica is a big crime, too, it’s a crime monster.
