  1. Hi Mercy,
    I remember 1980 as if it were yesterday. Every point you’ve made is on target, especially regarding the way children and parents interact. Today, I am absolutely shocked at the disrespect children have for their parents. Vulgarity is the norm today, as well. The foulness of today would not have been permitted 40 years ago. I credit the decline of society to its further distance from God. Prayerfully, things will turn around at some point. I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year.

    1. Can you believe years back in my culture children were even scorned by neighbors and strangers for been disrespectful today that cannot be said.Today foul languages and curses ravages the environment. May God have mercy upon us.I also wishes you a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.Warm regards
