    So in his uncontrolled rage over… whatever, he went from being suspended from school to going to prison & thereby forever being a convict/criminal. kmt

  • Met says:

    cindy i want to know if dem nah try reach out to these children…something is terribly wrong here

  • soap opera says:

    dem really a get from bad to worse……how many more have to die, before something is done?

  • Observer says:

    is like dem nuh tink seh di pitney dem a “pitney” an need guidance…drastic changes is urgently needed.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    I just can’t understand why they are so angry Met. It’s like their rage takes away any ability to think at all. In is walk away from the school, did nothing snap in his brain to say “no, don’t go get a knife to take back & stab someone, just go home & sleep”???

  • Cindy Royal says:

    “his” walk

  • Observer says:

    mi fel like wateva em get all suspended fah shudda get attention…em need help an dis is a cry caw sensible children doah act like dis…its such a shame

  • Met says:

    cindy with so much ”resources” and ways for these children to express themselves it is really disheartening to see that the minor ills that have plagued jamaican men for years is quickly becoming a major disease..what are the underlying factors this is what I would love to know

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Bwoy I don’t know Met, but what I do know it’s a myriad of factors, but I feel dealing with a few of these factors will help make these children better members of society. I also know that in Jamaica we deal with our boys rough. We don’t look out for them like we do our girls, eg, while girls have to be home as the sun drop, boys get to stay out late & possibly get in trouble. I also know that sometimes they don’t take weapons to school to do violence at school, but because of conflicts in the areas they live in, but because conflict happens at school the weapon come into play.

    Therefore, whatever needs to be done, needs to start from the root, not just at school. I have done some work with a particular group & they are trying to start from the communities, but let me tell u this, you cannot reach all of them, no matter how you try. It’s really a very trying & sad situation.

  • Met says:

    Yes Cindy but dat a long time ting and those men were not half as bad as these ones..also remember there was no way for them to express themselves…this generation have a lot less fi deal wid so wha di excuse? It sad man

  • just concern says:

    but met did you see the one that was in the gleaner, i think it was yesterday or the day before, about the seven year old that goes to a school in st mary i think she got reprimanded for something and that seven year old went home got a bottle of poison went back the following day and sprinkled it over teachers and students food and by the good grace of god the only reason they found out the bottle fell from her bag pack and upon investigation come to find out it was poison and that she had poison their food, now remember i said 7yrs old! several questions went through my head like how,where, and why? i don’t know man but something ain’t right the evil that is in some of these kids has been sown from a very tender age and then society feeds it along with some of these parent and it grows and grows and grows only god can help us

  • Met says:

    jus concern mi nuh read di whole a u comment..wtf???????????????????????????????????????????????? no sah 7 year old???????? no no no start over

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Cind, our children are angry because they have the burdens of their parent/parents on their shoulders. These parents don’t know how to keep their financial woes to themselves and not burden the children with them. Children are burdened by de 1/2 room living with siblings, niece/nephews, aunties/uncles, girlfriends, mother/ fathers , grands, kotchers having sex in the same bed/space…again wid their life burdens upon the youth.

    Then we have the early adulthood…dem fi stay inna school til 18, education fi free for all. Not all children were born to pass exams and go to college/university. Not everyone muss have house, land, car and get married with children.Time to end the plantation school system…1/2 season fi school and de ada 1/2 fi go reap crop and fan massa an him oman an pickney dem.

    Foreign no betta dan yu yaard. And is full time to BAN de negative characters in our society..ie, aidonas, kartels, likkle misses, de angels….look at the gal inna de towa hill video whey think it cute fi a argue wid long knife, look pon de one dem whey inna lane a war wid big stone and knife??? These are the images of life that corrupts our children.

    The youth dem have not a damn chance if de adults don’t stop corrupt them from early.

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Yes Met, Observa run de story. Likkle pickney tun poisoner early.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Yes Met, dat 7 y-o one did floor mi. Di pikney guh to di school guh throw gramoxone inna di food inna di canteen, inna di fish tank an ransack di place. Is like di pickney naw try kill 1 but every body at di school. Dem seh psychologist dealing wid dat child now, & I hope is not a short term thing cuz dat pickney sound like a psychopath in di making.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Maybe it’s not that parents share the family troubles with the children, but HOW they share those troubles. My family elders usually whisper whisper, until some one of my bigger cousins call dem out pan it an den dem basically gather all of us & mek wi know what is what an wi jus know fi adjust up wiself an wi neva feel angry or lacking for it. So maybe is how some of these parents tell the children, eg

    Child: “mommy yuh can buy mi a book”
    Mother: “weh yuh expec mi fi get money from? sell mi p****, guh ask yuh wukliss puppa”

    I’ve heard that & the list of inappropriate parent to child interaction continues. Kmt I remember when I was going to christen my son, I had to have counselling with my pastor, cuz him naw christen no child unless him counsel di parents on dem responsibility fi di life dem bring into di world. When him done, yuh know where yuh stand as a parent.

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Cindy, yu correct on the HOW. De scenerio yu wrote is also on point. I swear the most film dealing with part of this issue in our society was dancehall queen. I interpreted the movie for the social message and wished they would have done a part 2.

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Note: “most” is an error…I began to get too carried away and forgot to delete…know me nu cayta. lol

  • Met says:

    Cindy mi wudda like see the home where that child coming from…some a dem born evil eno man

  • ThEXOnE says:

    Salient points Cindy & Phantom…the how the messages are imparted is critical….And what the mom in the example Cindy gave no realize is she just planted the subconscious seed in her child’s mind that selling p***y equates income. So to that girl child, an impression of that has been made, and to a boy child in the same situation the impression of acceptance of that has been made. Thank God some a we born rebellious so our behaviours and choices contradict what conven would dictate we do or become
