Open Your Eyes

Posted on: April 27, 2012

Have you looked around at the teenage school girls and what they are wearing to school? Make-up and fashion have become part of the look? The school dresses are getting shorter and shorter and with all that make -up, they actually look older…there is a time and place for everything, would you not agree? Why are these girls in such a hurry to grow up? Lost teenagers or the sick pressure of the fashion world or we are parents, adults do not really care the path our teenage girls are trending on? Is our schooling system failing our future generation, is our government turning a blind eye as well?

This made me think about my schools days in Fiji and the fact that maybe I am a little old fashioned to some extent. In my school days the dresses were up to knee-length, no make-up and the only piece of jewellery allowed were a pair of very simple earrings, no long nails or nail vanish and the hair had to be tied back.  Simplicity and respect for the school and for different cultures was presented by all students. It did not matter if mummy or daddy were rich or politicans. We all had to dress the same and maintain the codes. Getting an education was not taken for granted, and there was discipline and respect for teachers and fellow students. We also had sunday rituals for students who were interested in advancement towards spirituality.  Although I may say a lot of what I know today was not taught. Things were kept simple yet effective for those who took heart and courage and saw the value in it.  Because of these teachings and the disciplinary system many of the girls I know have done well for themselves. Their vision was different. Maybe because of their individual circumstances, maybe because there were not spoilt and had not  been given a lot of freedom.

It is free will for every nation to do what they please but at what price when our young are so influenced by the modernisation which is slowly eroding the soul. Parents need to open their eyes too and maybe we all need to reeducate ourselves. What’s happening in the home environments or in schools ? When was the last time you had a heart to heart with your teenage girls? Teen time is difficult when there are so many changes going on, and I relate to my days , vulnerability was on top of the list. Our teens need clear guidance.

I am not saying that we have be too hard on them, but I feel this society is so out of balance and if we do not protect our children we do not deserve to focus on a happy future, because without the foundation that is strong and firm all will be lost, there is no bright future without healthy minds and strong happy hearts. This is something teenagers also need to understand, and  also not take things for granted.

My deepest hopes and prayers for all, no matter where you are, what colour or race, all children, yours and others need love and protection, not exploitation!!!
