e-Ticket machine

Jaheed Buksh, Sigatoka

Can Vodafone Fiji paste a notice at the Sigatoka Bus Station’s E-Transport vending machine, which reads ‘Out of Order’?

Many people continue to use the machine despite the problem because they are not aware that is not operating. Or better still, can Vodafone Fiji fix the problem soon?

 

Korovou Corrections facility

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

We have seen the demolition of the old Korovou Corrections facility; hence I believe the time is right to relocate the facility away from Suva City.

 

Children and parenting

Dhirendra Prasad, Lautoka

A lot of issues have surfaced with reference to our children.

Whether they are at school, at home or elsewhere, they are not behaving well as we want. It is evident through the various behaviour displayed by our children everywhere.

The lack of feelings for others such as their fellow disciplined ones, adults, the elderly and even the resources of all kinds within their reach. Many a times I have personally noticed young adults (in their teens/or high school students and surprisingly primary school students) loitering around the villages and settlements, along footpaths and roads. They are basically doing nothing but shouting and engaged in pick pocketing.

The most significant questions here is, where are their parents? A little delay of my child in his arrival makes me concerned. As a father or custodian of a child or any child under my care it becomes my responsibility to react accordingly to ensure that he is located and escorted back.

It is only when the loitering and misbehaving child becomes a victim himself then we will see the father or the mother (if not both) express their frustration and anger on the law enforcers. Then only that child becomes precious.

Up until that time these so-called parents are nowhere in the lives of their children apart from a level of catering for food and maybe providing a house, but not a home.

It is not our children who should be blamed, but it is us parents who should be ashamed for failing to capture their minds from the beginning. Negligent parents of loitering children should be brought to task as they are not only neglecting their basic responsibility of inculcating the necessary values of life and habits, but creating the next generation of criminals either knowingly or unknowingly.

Give them guns they will fight, but give them a Bible they will love and love sincerely, their life. By the way, there are hundreds of exceptional parents with exceptional children who need to be commended for their national duty of embedding good values of human kind to become desirable citizens of this beautiful nation. No family is beautiful because of the house quality and colour, but because of the quality of people making that same house a home.

God bless our families.
