POINTS TO PONDER

POINTS TO PONDER

Beware the apathetic and disinterested parent.

They LOVE blaming teachers for the attitudes of their children.

Their children are chips off the old block.

Often chips with copied attitude.

To up the age of criminal responsibility from 10 to 14 years is illogical and flies in the face of common sense. Both home (if parents are doing their job) and school through rules and regulations, instil the difference between right and wrong.

I believe that a significant number of people eligible for parole are content to remain under corrections care. Once paroled, food insecurity, humbugging, and general living living conditions offer challenges they do not face if remaining in custody.
