Viewer poll on primary school age children on errands without adult supervision

Our last question regarding primary school age children being sent on errands without adult supervision drew comments, some emotional, on both our e-poll and IMS. One viewer put her response in this way; “Belize is no playground, it is a dangerous place for EVERYONE, you can be sexually violated, assaulted or worst murdered so either way your innocence isn’t safe.” Seventy-three percent thought parents are negligent to send children out unaccompanied while twenty-seven percent said not so.

    The parents of the little girl should be investigated, This is where we need to see if social services are up to standards with our way of life. The parent are so negligent and are responsible for the child’s death…

    Parents just need to be aware of what is going on around them. No body every think this kind of thing will happen to them and when it does all you have is regret. Please… if you love your children and want to see them live, be mindful of the things going on about town. Tell your kids not to take ride from nobody even if its somebody they know.

    I strongly believe that our parents are not doing or taking their responsibilities seriously. We have so many negligent parents who just don’t give a damn about their kids. Come on parents, if you know you are worthless to take that responsibility of being a parent , well just don’t even think to give birth to a child. I want to recommend that such parent need to be dealt with according to the law. The law need to to do something about seeing children on street. Too many idle children were seen on street. Police need to pick up these children if they do have parents and put them in boys or girls home. Biblically, we need to take care of our kids because that’s God’s gift for us. If we fail to do our work then God will punish us.
