THE DEVIANT BEHAVIOUR of young women must be curbed urgently, Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite has said.
He added that the wayward behaviour included smoking, drinking alcohol and cursing.
“We have reached a stage where our young women seem even more aggressive than our young men. That is not a good [sign] for us in this country so we need to urgently address that,” he told the Prison Fellowship Barbados 2016 Angel Tree launching ceremony on Saturday.
“In the old days, the fellas would be the ones smoking the spliff, but the girls are now smoking. In the old days the fellas were drinking the rum – the girls are now drinking the rum. In the old days the fellas were cursing, it’s the girls that are cursing. So who is going to save our children if the mothers-to-be and the mothers are not setting the example?” (TG)
