‘Teaching, learning, discipline begin at home’

Published 11:24am Thursday, April 4, 2013

Dear editor,

I am concerned about some young people and the choices that are being made out in society – the lack of respect that has been shown for others.

If a child is loved, he or she will know how to love. If a child is given respect, he or she in turn will know how to respect others.

A child is known by his doing.

We expect a lot out of youth workers but not more than what is required of a parent.

Teaching, learning and discipline begin at home. It will show what’s what in society.
