“Parents do not care where their children are or whom they are with and what they are doing ”, we are facing a generation of young, bored and undisciplined children who have not received the affection and care from their parents, as they probably should.

But just imprisoning young kids would probably alone not solve the problem. We must get involved, and ask for the parents of the kids, and let them get involved in what their children are doing.

Jean –Jacques Rousseau believed that technology, knowledge and science corrupts human beings, and that human nature is good. The more knowledge a person have, many take greed into their hand or the more money a person has they believe they are better than another person.
