children nowadays are being dragged by their supposedly guardians to a life of despair and violence.. read the context of this song from Blessid Union of souls violence is spread worlwide and their families on the streets... we sell drugs to children now oh why cant we just see that all we do is eliminate our future with the things we do today.. money is our incentive now so that makes it okey.. guys,reflect on these, many children in the world are abused every second of the day.. some are raped, some die of famine, others are malnourished, maltreated, drugged, we are eliminating our future? what lies ahead? share your views.. how can we stop these abuse in childrens? let's help save lives.. your point of view might change the world

I do agree with MODSTAR's response: care must start from home. If children are nurtured and nourished especially in their young age, an they learn about love then they would be less likely to be subject to abuse. They would then instinctively stay away from things that would harm them and would harm their families indirectly. They would be less insecure about the superficial aspects of their personality and would gain confidence to keep them growing - they would love to learn and to grow and would therefore turn out better. Another thing I believe is important is that we have to become good examples to children. We should try to treat them as respectable individuals and not as stupid little critters that don't know anything about the world - if we keep on thinking that they are worthless and treat them as such, that would also be how they would see themselves; and that would be how they would turn out. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Care must start at home. Responsible influencing by parents is the key. Parents should be role models for their kids. Proper education must follow. A friendly environment helps a lot too in molding these kids and turning then into good citizens. Stopping abuse must start within us. Think before we act or react. Impulsive reactions are mostly negative.
