Call for a STRONG Voice to Curb “Misbehaving and Deviance”

The following was shared by Leslie P. Lett’s who is a Secondary School teacher of some repute to Facebook.

Many great ideas and recommendations came from our members who are the ones in the “trenches” daily…and they have been coming for quite some time. Surely, they deserve a hearing and an exploration by Officialdom.

I am very heartened to hear the news that the principals have now said that they, as an association – BAPPSS – stand ready to work with the parents of those children who are “misbehaving and deviant”.

Some questions, though?

  1. Haven’t teachers been engaging and earnestly attempting to engage the parents forever?
  2. Haven’t teachers called the parents on many different occasions to discuss their children?
  3. Haven’t teachers been meeting with the parents at Year level meetings?
  4. Haven’t teachers communicated to parents their willingness to meet with them and discuss their children?
  5. Don’t teachers write reports on these children every single term?
  6. Haven’t teachers voiced their serious concern about these children to parents and their principals many times before violent eruptions – reported and unreported in the national media?

Make no mistake about it…teachers have forever been engaging with parents about their children, ever ready and willing to work with them for the benefit of their children…our children.

Teachers had better destroy any false, misguided and perverted narratives otherwise that some people wish to present in a concerted and deliberate campaign to besmirch us! That is the teachers’ real struggle right there!
Sitting back and allowing oneself to be mischaracterised, maligned, disrespected and dismissed will lead to only one destination…and spawn an even more precarious and unsafe environment in which the most effective teaching and learning must be fostered.

Teachers, we have to join our hands, put our minds together, link our arms, and stand up and speak out against the many subtle and not-so-subtle assaults upon our integrity and daily commitment to our profession, to our charges, and to our country.

Because, make no mistake about it, these attacks will be coming with an increased frenzy and fury.
We will need to depend on our solidarity if we wish to be strong enough to counter and, ultimately, defeat them! And be a strong voice in any charting of the way forward of our system of education in Barbados.

The choice is ours. No one else’s. OURS.

    It is important that older people set young people examples; we cannot continue to criminalise young people when the elders are behaving in a juvenile, dishonest and vulgar way – turning a blind eye to some forms of criminal behaviour and punishing others if they even step out of line.
    Israeli police have just recommended that the prime minister be prosecuted for alleged corruption; can you imagine this happening in Barbados?
    We want professional integrity coming from the very top, decency, honesty, objectivity, not magistrates imprisoning people because they are poor and jobless. All our institutions and office holders need to step up to the plate and show they are fit to hold their positions.
    Teachers who deliberately fail young people so their parents will hire them as private tutors; few things are more evil than this waste of human capital so a demented individual may make a few more dollars, all because they know ideologically corrupt unions will back them in any show down with the authorities..
    The virus of party bias must give way to the integrity of the nation. People of moral strength must step up. Where is the church? Our lawyers? Our doctors? Other professionals? Who are the people prepared to give leadership to the nation?

  • I have a few questions of my own:

    Haven’t principals refused to co-operate with police when students commit crimes on the school compounds?

    Haven’t principals flushed illegal drugs down the toilets, in some misguided notion of protecting the schools’ reputation, rather than turn the offenders over to the authorities?

    Haven’t principals refused to identify students to police when enquiries are being made.

    When parents go to the schools and misbehave, including assault teachers, that misbehaviour is generally covered up by principals. Students seeing that there were no consequences for their parents soon follow suit.

    This is what you reap when principals are selected based on political affiliation.

    Very true.because everything in Barbados,being a small country, is tainted by the nasty corrupt,lying,dishonest politician who thinks not country but personal interest and party above everything he does or says.They should all be hamstrung by tight laws having penalties so sharp that they will think several times before they take that step in the wrong direction.

    You sound like an old-fogie Bajan slave master.

    Why these draconian measures with students.

    What about the big White people who can commit murder in Barbados and walk away, scotch free

    Why, by implication, criminalize youngsters in the circumstances described

    Would the drugs not have escaped your Customs officials

    Don’t you Caswell make your living by giving criminal Customs officers more protection from law than the head teachers you so berate.

    Why not criminalize the Union which represents them for letting in those ‘illegal’ substances in the first place.

    Head teachers today have, by far, less influence than years ago. That a few may try to help some misguided youths to avoid a monstrous judicial system is indeed to be commended.

    You have a totally corrupted government, B & D, instead of finding ways other than voting to deal with these crimes you are suggesting making examples of the lest of these – school children.

    How shameful. You have become worthy of a date with our guillotine.

Their job is to train minds and develop social skills of their wards. Their job is not to police . There should always be a fiduciary relationship between parents school and child.

    What about the many lies told about the ‘bouncing’ economy and defamatory statements made against ordinary citizens while hiding behind the veil of double standards of one law for the political class (called parliamentary privileges) and another for the rest of the citizenry who can be targeted to be cracked in their skulls and shot in their backsides?

  • This self-hating White-evangelical-dispensationalist-Christian operating under the pseudonym of Georgie Porgie represents the epitome of ignorance.

    We held no brief for Barack Obama. But Obama has left office for more than a year. Still this asshole, who listens to Fox News, as gospel, and the ramblings of racist, Christian, evangelical, money men, like Falwell, Billy Graham el al, comes here and continues to blame all the ills bedeviling a racist Trump on Obama.

    Trump never believed in anything but racism, money and power. Certainly not Christianity.

    But yet Christian fascists in the USA and further afield hang on to him, like they did George Bush before, for money and power while fooling well educated cunts like Georgie Porgie that Trump is the window to the second coming of a man who was never here.

    What an unadulterated cunt hole is this Georgie Porgie!

    How could it have been possible for a country with limited resources to have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in his miseducation?

    His feeble defenses of the most wicked man ever to be the head of any nation state, within any epoch, entirely rest of some selfish notion about going to a nonexistent haven.

    His philosophical underpinnings, as misguided as they can be, make a god out of a devil.

    Today this fucker, Georgie Porgie, would have nothing to say about the shooting in Parkland and the collective responsibility of Trump and the Republican Party but continues blame Obama for the monumental failures of an imbecilic Trump who he sometime refers to by pet names, like ‘trumpet’, as the far-Right media in the US does.

    Even if there were some heaven some where as these assholes posit, this writer would 10 times out of 10 willingly opt for hell.

    If there were some mythical heaven as his snake oil religious leaders say or that he convinces himself would be available to him because of some personal relationship with a man who never existed we would again chose the netherworld for we would hate to have a do-over in another world with these rasssoul gangsters.

    Can de ole man suggest something here that is purposely facile (not that the ole man too sophisticated nor educated nor erudite)

    The 17 kids that were killed by that 18 year old and the 2 boys who were stabbed by the 4 schoolboys HAVE A SINGLE DENOMINATOR irrespective of where they are in the world.

    I can appreciate all the abdication hypotheses that are promoted i.e. the family has broken down, single family homes, the community has been deconstructed, the social frameworks have been diluted, the TV has undermined our value systems, the church has failed, the politicians present despicable deleterious influences that impinge negatively on the youth etc etc

    But here is the thing.

    A teacher anywhere in the world HAS INTERACTION WITH A CHILD 6 hours a day.

    I accept that teachers are not parents and I accept all the other politically correct escapist theory that is posited as an excuse for why we are where we are but here is the counterpoise for active consideration of wunna brainiacs of Facebook Repute

    Wunna does be complaining that the children are using the computers to watch Grand Theft Auto with its sensationalization of rampant acts of death and mayhem and auto-conditioning of malleable minds of children to kill each other for the slightest thing.

    The church with its laisser faire attitude and free pass to its pederasts complains vociferously about the deleterious effects of The Bold and the Wuffles or Orange is the new Black or Sex in the City on the Values and Morals of our society.

    Yet, and here is the fascinating thing that does not cease to amaze me, whether in the 2×2 rock which I am supposed to be enfranchised on, or in the mighty states of Amurica, people seem almost like zombies to counter viable strategies or some semblance of “fighting back”

    Leh de ole man explain and give a context for both Amurica and Bulbados.

    Do any of you know what is the viewership of XFactor, America’s Got Talent, THe Bachelor, THe Bachelorette, Wheel of Fortune or any such televised gameshow?

    Yet the Bachelor and Bachelorette and that one Big Brother ? with Omarossa command the viewership of millions of people while advancing a disfunctional relationship agenda WITH THE SPONSORSHIP OF BILLIONS OF ADVERTISING DOLLARS!!

    Let de ole man come home now to these Leslie Lett us all jes talk bout it.

    CBC is owned by government and has been so owned from the time it was formed

    The Ministry of Education, irrespective of the administration, is a government entity with the sole responsibility for the collective indoctrination of the captive primary, secondary and to a degree tertiary tiers of education in Bulbados.

    You mean to tell de ole man dat amongst all uh wunna braniacs and educators dat not a feller ent got the greymatter to propose a nationally disseminated curriculum that mirrors some sort of watered down ethics and Values Indoctrination that our schools demand they are taught as an ENFORCED INDOCTRINATION that will variously seek to effect the similar counter indoctrination to that of BIG BROTHER, something which while we accept that teachers ARE NOT YOU FADDER OR MUDDAH (KHVNT) meet a standard that is acceptable by all the interest groups?

    In the context of Amurica, it ent like one would be forcing people to say the Lord’s Prayer contrary to their seperation of Church and state laws.

    All de ole man suggesting is taking a serious look at “thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal thou shalt not commit false withness AND LIKE DEM DOES DO WITH THE HOLLYWOOD FILTH THAT WE BAJANS EATING UP, craft it into a counterpoise which is purposed to indoctrinate captive students WHO ENT GOT NO MUDDER OR FADDER, WHO BEING IMPACTED BY DEM TV TO BE WUFLESS, OR WHO WATCHING “KILL EM ALL AND COME BACK ALONE, and are in enforced alternative universes that progress to them taking and AK47 or a knife and stabbing or shooting up a fellow student

    But as a wise fella once said : “…to ignore the facts does not change the facts.”

    I am not too sharp, bereft as I am of oratorical splendour or and scant educational capital.

    But de ole man would admit that my gift is one of “pretend” vision, seeing things that seem so evident.

    Mostly because i cannot deep deeper heheheheh

    I will duplicate these remarks from one Tyriz Nathan Skinner, the young man charged with the cutlass attack on another student at Ellerslie School last November.

    In response to a question by Magistrate Graveney Bannister as to what he, Tyriz, had learnt in the wake of reading the two Martin Luther King books, the boy replied: “Don’t retaliate when things are bad or somebody interferes with you.”

    And he Tyriz, then goes on to say “I have learnt that the use of violence does not solve anything,”

    Now mind you, Dr GP, one can easily project that his legal counsel, or some other advisor cognisant of, and aufait with the parlance and trickery of the court system, COULD AND WOULD HAVE PROMPTED HIM as to what he was to respond.

    But let me pause and as a pretend “brainiac” try to examine and dissect the tenets of what he has been subjected to as a potential HMP resident.

    For a few weeks while he was enforced to do this he has been subjected to the same reading that de ole man is suggesting and his orchestrated response is that he is to act a different way in these circumstances.

    Now Dr. GP, de ole man would put it to you that fellows like de Atalky General and de Minister of Edukashun and Fumbles none of dem venerable fellers ent see how, in a compact environment, de same ting de ole man recommending IS BEING ENFORCED!

    Of course if any links are found between any of those real estate deals which Trump flipped so successfully to Russians then looka trouble.

    This entire thing is an awesome advertisement for Vlad Putin’s really superior skills: he took out Clinton and is taking out the US so well too…. He can simply drop some intel (make believe surely but who can refute it) to show that a few of those high priced sales was a well oiled planned to coddle Trump … the fact that he made it to the WH was a bonus would be Vlad’s narrative.

    In his shoes I would drop that around year three … as the final blow to start the impeachment of Mr Teflon, who of course would be screaming blue murda and who would split the US asunder…what a coup for Putin…BOOM!

    For the CIA/FBI to have penetrated these deep state secrets is indeed remarkable.

    That should also tell us that the counter espionage systems of the Kremlin are not impervious to the American spooks.

    Let’s assume they have a case.

    What we can’t figure is the long termed hyperventilation of the security/intelligence services and their media arms about Russian meddling as though something new.

    The USA has meddled with other people elections, systems of government for centuries, as right. This is never mentioned. They have routinely overthrown governments they dislike, with military force if necessary.

    MIAMI — The gun show must go on.

    Three days after Nikolas Cruz shot and killed 17 people — and injured 15 more — with an AR-15 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, prospective gun buyers can go shopping.

    Florida Gun Shows is holding a 600-booth expo at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition on Saturday and Sunday.

    Organizers confirmed to Miami New Times that there are no plans to cancel this convention, which has been in the works for months.

    Every paid admission ($13) receives a chance to enter a drawing and win a free handgun or rifle. Plus kids 11 and under get in free.

    A few caveats: You can bring a maximum of two (unloaded) guns into the show for the purpose of “appraisal, sale, trade or for accessories,” but all weapons must be checked at the entrance and secured with a plastic tie strap, advises Florida Gun Shows’ Facebook page.

    Also, to purchase a gun in Florida you must be 18 to buy a rifle, 21 to buy a handgun — and a Florida resident.

    What about the BLP presenting a candidate who is only remembered for telling another MP “Your mother CUN* for all Barbados to hear on National radio and TV. Can you blame the young people for speaking to each other like that when a big man cannot control his tongue in the highest legislature in the land.

    When a BLP MP in front of young people at a public meeting must try to use a term RAT BOXY that young people use to describe what we might call A SLUT to try to insult the Prime Minister of Barbados, is he not encouraging the young people to talk to each other the same way

    When BLP members in the House and Senate smile and pose when supporters call people who choose to support a different party WHORES, what example is the BLP setting for young people about how to speak to those who might have a differing point of view.

    When a BLP politician intentionally inflicts criminal damage on his partner’s vehicle, what example is the BLP setting for young men in relationships.

    When people in Christ Church West supported a lady who was very loyal to the BLP party for years and then the party leader engaged in a blatant act of political tribalism of a bright, young articulate woman because she chose to speak truth to the BLP oligarchy, what message does that send about being victimized for having a difference of opinion?

    What about using social media to intentionally push untruths about houses in Rolling Hills, St. George,etc. Is that the same as teenagers using social media to bully, intimidate and spread falsehoods?

    You can only reap what you sow. There is plenty of blame to go around but please try to remember that the BLP certainly does not come to us with clean hands or any moral superiority. Try to be a little more objective, if that is possible.

    No Americans indicted!….sayeth all those seeking some measure of cover from a withering ‘malstorm’ of political hail.

    A hostile power has now finally been proven to have attacked the core of US democracy : its free and supposedly fair election process.

    An extensive, premeditated and beautifully planned attack better executed than Japan’s Pearl harbour action. A clear act of warfare by Russia using the vastly more powerful modern weaponry of the internet.

    Thousands of Americans unknowingly aided and abetted this attack and every US intel agency tasked to defend the nation got caught napping. They long ago admitted that they failed when they acknowledged the Russian success.

    And the leader of America repeatedly….repeatedly publicly denies that Russia was directly responsible for any election interference; he says that Putin himself tells him so and that he believes him; he refuses to implement Russian sanctions that this US congress finally approved; he says Putin is a great leader.

    After the Japanese bombers swpooped in no American stood to defend them…people were imprisoned, careers were destroyed, lives changed forever….much strife.

    Today the US President supports the attacker of his nation’s sovereignty.

    This is unheard of…absolutely unbelievable….at any other time in US history this man (and congressman Rohrabacher, and several other now delinquent folks) would be removed for treason, complicity to commit treason, dereliction of duty or otherwise.

    So it surely is comforting that Mueller did not indict one American, isn’t it…after Putin so wittingly coopted this ‘unwitting’ US President what a comfort we should feel!

    This is utter madness. There is no time for stupid political games…stand up and see this threat as an attack of the world democracy …the Russians also ‘assisted Sanders against Clinton, he surely would not have been a patsy naysayer of Russian election tricks had he won!

He has a documented history of years of interaction to Russian power brokers and Russian mafia types from NY.

    “You can only reap what you sow. There is plenty of blame to go around but please try to remember that the BLP certainly does not come to us with clean hands or any moral superiority. Try to be a little more objective, if that is possible.”

    Couldn’t agree with you more, NBLPN! Surprised, are you? Fair enough!

    What you wrote is entwined in that maxim for ‘those who see justice must come with clean hands’; or at least hands ‘less’ dirty than the accused transgressor.

    So let us both go to the Appeal court of equity to seek protection under the highest law of the Land, namely Morality.

    Why not put on your blindingly white glove and black blinkers and add a few more charges as feathers to the scale to achieve a balanced verdict.

    Why have you purposely omitted from your in exhaustible list of charges the fact that your boss man gave his ironclad assurance to the same young people that Tertiary education would always be ‘freely’ accessible at the point of delivery as long as he and his party are on watch?
    Do you want such publicly-stated evidence to be reproduced as an official record of the Court?

    What about not keeping, again, his word about Privatization given prior to his well orchestrated 2013 election defeat of the clearly outfoxed OSA?

    What about publicly expressing your unswerving love in true Mafia style for a bosom buddy who has been forensically fingered for relieving policy holders of at least “3.3 million of their hard earned savings earmarked for their offspring’s higher education?

    Weren’t those envelopes being stuffed as the MoF spoke in that august chamber to the parents of those same children aping their honourable role models in the same House of repute? What has gone wrong? Have the postal workers gone on permanent strike in support of Akanni Mc. D?

    What about the promise made to the taxpayers to deliver their refunds from 2013?

    We will not rehash any thing about the stalled Four Seasons of all wilderness which was to start shortly, very shortly as you kept speaking?

    And we are not prepared either to let you off the hook, NBLPN.
    When next you submit another of your tiresome tirades about the BLP controlled-Nation’s newspaper weekly columnists -’known’ to you as ardent BLP sympathizing fifth columnists out to undermine your well-loved supremely competent administration- just reminisce about the halcyon days of newspaper reporting and VOB call-in programming for the sake of fairness and balance reporting.

    Check out in an even handed manner just who were the then fifth columnists at the Nation’s sister Radio Station and where many ended up after January 2008.

    We can both recluse ourselves and await the verdict of the ‘juvenile’ jury.

    So what is the holdup? Are you going to loiter in the electorate’s backyard after 24th February or are you going to keep your moral word and vacate the place immediately after the 6th of March when your 5 years of torturous maladministration are officially over or are you going to show the youth what a “rat boxy” of a party you all are?

    The online book is ‘The People’s House’. “[It] centers around a Russian scheme to flip an election and put Republicans in power by depressing votes in the Midwest.” It was released in the summer of 2016 and apparently was cited by a WSJ reviewer as “a sleeper candidate for political thriller of the year.”

    And the author is a regional Democrat party chairman no less…Lord come for your world…with direct Russian connections to the Vlad.

    “Pepper [the author], after all, just happens to be the chairman of the Democratic Party in perhaps the most important battleground state in the country. And he also just happened to spend three years in Russia after college on a think tank project where his point of contact in the St. Petersburg’s mayor’s office was none other than a young Vladimir Putin himself.”

  • BARBADOS TODAY carries the story of a young asthmatic who died in a road traffic accident while trying to get to the QEH.

    Q WHY did he not have aminophyline suppositories?
    A Because the first director of the drug service, LENNOX PRESCOD, banned them from the formulary in the late 80’s.
    Since the early 90’s we abandoned the tried and tested aminophyline IV injections stat followed by aminophyline drip, which was like magic for the modern nebulizer treatment.

    In the 80’s I had a patient from the hills of St Andrew where it can get cold in the foreday morning. He would come to clinic seeking prescriptions for aminophyline suppositories because he said once he had them …….HE DID NOT HAVE TO RUSH TO THE HOSPITAL!

    I WONDER IF THE LAD WHO DIED THIS WEEK MIGHT HAVE LIVED IF HE HAD A FEW AMINOPHYLINE SUPOSITORIES.

    It was while waiting for an aminophyline drip to go through in the ER at St Joseph Hospital in 1985 that I then explained to the then Minister of Transport and Works, how the NHS could, and should work. It was he who begged me to go tell this to the then Minister of Health…….the result, as they say is history!

    AMINOPHYLINE 500 MG IV PUSH FOLLOWED BY AN AMINOPHYLINE DRIP IS NO LONGER THE STANDARD TREATMENT FOR ACUTE ASTHMATIC ATTACKS IN BARBADOS, BUT THE RESULTS OF THE FACT THAT THE then Minister of Transport and Works LISTENED AS TO how the NHS could, and should work IS STIL MUCH IN VOGUE……ah lie?

    I have been missing in action from BU for a while and when I returned and saw that you back I was pleased deep down

    And I will share with you “the why” and share with the others said why.

    Many here really don’t understand you, or your unique style, but I will hazard a perspective based on my observations of how you engage.

    Your are a superlative professional who has achieved much in your adopted clime.

    I believe that the burden of being such a talented person falls much harder on people like yourself people who, having been disillusioned with or by the morass that is the Bajan experience, leave and go on to live and contribute your expertise to other climes where you excel.

    There is a thing about leaving one’s native ecosystem, which de ole man will affirm is “administered by the blind” and going elsewhere to excel in the very thing that de Bajan hot shots decry you over.

    THe challenge is that “when your navel string bury right dey” you truly agonize when you see the rampant idiocy that is led by the Lennox Prescods’ of the Bajan National Health System landscape.

    All de ole man can tell you is that these prolific LPs are a product of this 2×2 rock so one can’t really blame him or the rest of them.

    “Water finds its own level” Dr. GP and therefore the institutionalized paucity of performance that is ubiquitous in several spheres in BIM perforce will accept similar underperformance

    THis is expected nay a prerequisite to be appointed to hold various positions across the cuntry.

    I purposely spelt cuntry that way because we are replete of chkvnts who are in the drivers seats.

    And like some pestilence or plague, they abound and promote their colleagues Dr. GP exponentially.

    A chkvunt WILL NOT HIRE A SMART PERSON AS A CO-WORKER or employee because they will be exposed, so you WILL NEVER BE HIRED IN BARBADOS kind sir (even though you do now want to be).

    NOw let de ole man extrapolate a likkle as it relates to your religious views.

    I am taking liberties but faith and religious belief, because of the very nature of belief, is personal and unproveable?.

    It is the sum of one’s socialization, exposure and aptitude, and becomes ultimately a matter of perspective, opinion, and conviction.

    The fact is that “no matter how real GOD is for me I cannot transfer that experience to you” nor vice versa.

    In short, what goes on between your two ears during our sojourn here on this earth is a personal thing, but, for some of us, GOD is real, for others Allah is real and for a few, there is no deity.

    Not everyone has a “Paul on the Road to Damascus” moment and for that matter many dont even believe in Paul or Saul or whatever.

    Ensuingly, when many get caught up in the sociopolitical issues of the day they do not have the benefit of such belief which does not defer to the lower rung of physical law but, for a few of us whose orientation is guided by our beliefs, the dross of political experience i is just prophesy coming to pass.

    Persons get annoyed with you and you do enjoy baiting? them, because, for you, having the comfort and conviction of belief you are assured that the issues and directions this is playing out in IS AS IT HAS BEEN FORETOLD.

    When you “shift” nonchalantly between Obama or Reagan or Trump, with scant respect or regard for the kings of this domain, you ARE NOT DOING SO FROM THEIR FINITE PERSPECTIVES using the limited situational involvement concept.

    The thing is, because you have reached a point in your life where you truly have accepted and are resigned to GOD THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS and His Son Jesus the Christ you can easily speak without these vacillations and frettings

    You have achieved “nirvana” and await the more permanent experience of sentience in the Eternal Kingdom of GOD..

    Ergo your “bare sport in the rum shop” comment, ah lie?

    Like i said forgive my presumption but as one “starts to die” Dr. GP sometimes, something starts to dawn on one’s understanding that permits a better grasp of things.

    re Lennox. This man, whom I knew from boyhood went to study Pharmacy…….but did not ever see or interact with PATIENTS! Now it is thought that if you insert a suppository “high” in the rectum,a different result is obtained than if you insert a suppository “low” in the rectum, with respect to the quantity absorbed in unit time. That is OK Pharmacy or Pharmacology, but poor Pharmaceutics!

    A man who is wheezing, having inhaled cold air in far away St Andrew will be better served by having either a high or a low aminophyline suppository inserted immediately, than the same man from the same area waiting to be driven to Bridgetown to be nebulized!

    When the man(patient)tells you of his repeated benefit of the suppositories, why will you deny him this facility? …….except that your Pharmacy or Pharmacology knowledge and your position has gone to your head…..and that you have no real knowledge of seeing the magic of aminophyline.

    That is not to say that I dont understand the reason for the contemporary regimes.

    Up here folk are just as stupid, but you learn from past experiences to keep quiet, say nothing and just do enough to get by and”run with patience the race that is set before you” as taught in Hebrews 12.

    Not to malign all lawyers, but I cannot think of any lawyer whom I would permit to be in the same room as my child. Unless i was standing right beside the child.

    Just saying.

    There are no single family homes.

    However there are too many father absent homes.

    That is the new term.

    Not single parent.

    Not single mother,

    Father absent.
    Father absent.
    Father absent.

    Actually it is teaching young men that if you do that sh!te, that your woman will leave you. The women nowadays are NOT like you old mother.

    Should that be ‘Fathers absent’ as in plural?

    Too many of these households headed by so-called single mothers have children from varying biological ‘staff’ sources?

    Now why is that or does the axiom ‘once bitten twice shy’ or’ fooled by one deadbeat dad, can’t happen again, again and again’ have no meaning to fertile ‘Barrow-educated’ women?

    Where is your evenhandedness?

    BTW, more men commit suicide over women they ‘falsely’ believed loved them back than the other way around.
