BARBADIANS ARE HYPOCRITICAL when it comes to troubled children, principal of the Government Industrial School Erwin Leacock has lamented.

He added that some aspects of the treatment of children even made him ashamed to be a Barbadian.

“I am embarrassed as a Barbadian as to our lack of appreciation and understanding of what some of our children are going through,” he said Monday night during an address to the annual general meeting of the Soroptimist International of Jamestown.

“There is no justifiable reason why we as a society should be saying to an 11 or 12-year-old, ‘I have had enough, I am giving up, I can’t deal with you anymore’, but that is what is happening where we are giving up on troubled children because of behaviour that they see us adults engaging in.” (CA)
