Preventative means, work and enforcement both of which our leaders choose not to do. Why????? Go figure…………While that is taking place, we are left to pick of the pieces of the carnage day in and day out.
Parenting………………….what exactly does that mean???? You do not need to be able to read and write to know the basics of survival for your kids. How can you justify 10 little ones in a vehicle that is licensed to carry 5? How can you the parent or guardian put your child in such a vehicle? If you are going to wail that you did not know the driver was going to pack up the vehicle, I say, LIAR… Is the driver a stranger to you? Be careful how you answer that question.
Society claims that social development is needed in order to curtail the ills facing our children. I ask this question? If the government has to provide the basic survival skills to women, then maybe they should qualify before pushing out babies as if they are animals. I have to correct that last statement, as animals are treated far better than human beings in this century. Some of our women are proving that they are not mentally equipped to raise their children. While they are equipped to create them, they certainly are clueless, selfish or downright foolish in raising them. This is an Island where we are sick and tired of hearing of the evil acts, whether sexual, physical and emotional abuse inflicted on our most vulnerable. My heart bleeds for these little ones as they did not sign up for this. They look to mommy, daddy for the path they should cross until they are able to make their own decisions. Instead they receive trump change. We should be outraged that our children keep suffering due to the carelessness of those who should be their gatekeeper. When will they be held accountable for their irresponsibility’s? Are you going to tell me that infant children dictate to their parents on the values of their own lives? If it is they are oh so smart that they do, am I to accept that the adult has now taken the role of the child, and vice versa? Knowing so, you should be allowed to procreate under those circumstances after the 1, 2 and 3 you currently have are totally lost? Who speaks for the minors of our nation? Who is prepared to stop being part of the reactors and instead fight for the rights of minors? The right to be able to live knowing that their guardians know and care about their welfare outside of the material.
It is one thing to learn how to raise and cope with the challenges at times of raising your baby. I say loudly that once the child has reached an age where it can speak and walk on its own without the baby talk, one would think some growth on your part should be imminent. If that is not the case, then should you really be parenting? Now who are the players to be made culpable for this? When are the laws going to be enforced and when are we going to properly legislate for the safety our kids? I have no tolerance for carelessness and my sympathies will always be directed to the most vulnerable, the children.

10 schoolchildren injured in Trelawny crash
(Jamaica Observer) Saturday, February 18, 2017 31 Comments
FALMOUTH, Trelawny — The 10 students who were injured in a motor vehicle collision in Trelawny yesterday morning have been transferred from Falmouth Hospital to other hospitals for treatment, head of the Trelawny Police Division Superintendent Clive Blair has revealed.
Nine of the 10 students, who attend infant and primary schools, were transferred to Cornwall Regional Hospital while the other student was transferred to the Bustamante Hospital for Children.
The drivers of the two motor cars involved in the crash were also seriously hurt and have been hospitalised.
Reports from the police are that shortly before 8:00 am, a Toyota Camry motor car, which had the 10 students on board, was travelling along the Martha Brae main road towards Falmouth when it collided with another Toyota motor vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.
The drivers, who were trapped and had to be cut from their mangled vehicles by members of the Falmouth Fire Department, and the students were all rushed to hospital.
In the wake of the crash, Superintendent Blair warned that, in the coming weeks, the police will be adopting a zero-tolerance approach towards motorists who overload their vehicles and commit other traffic breaches.
“The overloading (of motor vehicles) is another issue because there were 10 students and basically that car is licensed to carry five people: The driver, plus four,” Superintendent Blair stated.
He was also critical of parents who allow their children to travel in privately owned motor vehicles that are illegally operating as taxis.
“The parents who allow their children to go into ‘robot’ taxis should be aware that it is wrong, because in the case of an accident, they will not be able to get any compensation if they sustain any injuries. It is a privately owned vehicle; it can’t be used as a public passenger vehicle,” he said.
Members of the traffic department at the Falmouth Police Station are investigating.
