Very true Jimmy. I want the kids these days to read this.

Ignorant Facebook updates, pretentious lifestyles to boast of competing with each other about their wealth and standard of living, like it or not the social media separates the haves and have nots.

Ripple effects causing people to lie about themselves leading to unproductive content free loaders. Wanna live plush on the internet but cannot work hard enough in reality to achieve anything really. Sorry if my view is going off track

This is a classic piece depicting sons and daughters of wealthy people being disobedient and ignorant. Misusing parents' sweat as if it is theirs.

Thus they need to read a lot to be more self reliant and respect their parents' hard work.

If our own children don't listen to us, perhaps they will listen to somebody else's advice. And that's why PNG authored books and literature need to be made available to students in our classrooms.

That's why the government ought to buy books by Papua New Guineans and distribute them to all our schools.

This piece by Jimmy is a classic example of the type of literature our children need to read, written by PNGeans. It is what every concerned parent is telling their children to change their attitudes, study hard and make it in life. Good one Jim.
