    This is called the "trickle down effect" . When the leaders of a country are corrupt and does not set a good example, this is what happens to the young people, they are just emulating their leaders who a pocketing Millions on every available transaction

    Who is the role model these days for the youth? The high profile politicians, some powerful administrators and a few businessmen - all robbing the country. So no wonder kids are picking up these skills. Sri Lanka beware - no values, no rules, no laws ! Thoughts for Vesak and action sooner than later.

    Being kept away from the parents is not the right answer. That means parents should have known what they were doing. They should be arrested for aiding & abbeting.
