Kids only copy what they see

Children only copy what adults do; that’s how they learn the social norms.
If you take a look at Page 36 [of last Friday’s Weekend Nation], you will have your answer. They too read the papers their parents buy, they see these images; and so, what is the point of this survey? You [the media] are part of the problem! You owe it to society not to condone this behaviour or publish it as the norm.
This society is where our kids, our friends’ kids, our brothers’ and sisters’ kids will grow up in. We must all help to create a better place in which to grow and live.
You [the media] can’t have it both ways: help to create the problem, then seek to capitalize on it, which is what you are trying to do . . . . This is all part of a much bigger problem that will have very serious repercussions in the not too distant future.
Remember the burning of those girls that shocked this nation not too long ago? It all goes back to the permissive culture we have embraced. It pains me to see what we have become . . . .
