The family unit

I was brought up in a Christian home, and, even though my biological father chose only to sire his 4 children and then leave, my mum did a marvellous job in raising us single-handedly, with God's help.

The family is under constant threat as there is little respect for elders and everything is 'PC' and all about self... priorities are upside down.

Having lived in South Africa and England, I see marked differences in the behaviour of youngsters for example btwn the two countries... and have to conclude that where there is more discipline (as in South African schools and homes generally), there is more love and respect. A stronger family unit, which makes for a better/more caring society.
