THE CRY THAT DISCIPLINE among children is not what it was like in ages past was brought vividly to life last Friday night at the Errol Barrow Centre For Creative Imagination, Cave Hill Campus.

The Imagine Youth Summer Arts Programme showcase entitled Do Fuh Do, staged by children ages 11 to 18, took the form of dance, music, speech and skits, with themes of disobedience, punishment, acquiescence and enlightenment being explored before an appreciative audience.

Three girls were shown to disobey the instructions of their mother and being subsequently punished by her. In this modern era, technological devices are often at the centre of children’s activities and as a measure of discipline, the children were deprived of them. But the lessons went beyond that.

To illustrate the point of changing times and a Barbados of yore, the children are transported back through time to old Barbados where all the good qualities instilled in young people through parenting, the extended family, market life and the involvement of the village are highlighted.
