So far, as of today, children - ranging from kids to teens-show their own disrespectful ways, parents have become too chance-giving and careless, and almost all values have been forgotten. It may not seem like such a big deal, but loss of respect and honesty is a problem as big as poverty or corruption. Two groups are at fault. Namely, cyberspace, and most especially, parents.
The internet poses as a sight of some addiction. Sometimes, once you start - like watching a dare on YouTube or playing a round of Mobile Legends - it seems next to impossible to stop. As someone asks you to stop, you do feel a bit annoyed or enraged, yes? If this keeps going, it could and would get worse, until it would become normal to speak back to those who just want to help. It would be unthinkable to make the world your enemy, definitely in eliminating values, respect and discipline, it would be.
It may also be parents’ fault. As the saying goes, parents are the first step of guidance in a child's life. They are in charge of the child's welfare and development, and children shouldn't be brought up missing the traits of honesty, positivity, respect, and discipline. Good manners, such as the saying of 'po' and 'opo', 'please' and 'thank you', must also not be excluded from one's childhood training.
And this is why the suggestion and urge of the Department of Education should be taken seriously. The DepEd Undersecretary, Annalyn Sevilla, proposed for parents to help schools with instilling good and positive values to their children.
"Halos wala na silang paggalang sa authorities, inspite sa mga advice na binibigay sa kanila, wala pa rin, kaya naisipan ko dapat talagang ipatupad sa lahat ng ahensya ng Division ang tamang pagpapakita ng malasakit at paggalang sa bawat isa," DepEd Imus City Division Superintendent Jimmy Panganiban, another official, said in an interview.
Alapan 1 Elementary (A1ES) also showed their full support to the call of DepEd by now teaching parents the values of education, whenever a GPTA meeting is held, according to Marilou R. Cenita, homeroom adviser.
It can't be long before other schools answer the call as well. DepEd did well with the call, as the loss of these traits and values will most likely lead to a darker tomorrow.
