Do you know where your kids are?

I want to convey the message to parents of all kids who are doing very ugly things, especially during the night.

I want to convey the message to parents of all kids who are doing very ugly things, especially during the night.

I usually go for a walk in the morning between 6 and 6:30 a.m. every day. But this morning, when I came out of my house for a walk, I was very much surprised by the scene in front of my house. The rocks from our property were scattered on the road.

I thought that the kids might be playing with these rocks and scattered them here and there. I picked them up off the road so that they may not cause an accident to the vehicles. Then I started on my walk as usual.

On the way I was very astonished to see that all the signs of the daycare centre on Teskey Road were removed and thrown away from their original places. The new trees which were planted by the city a few months ago were removed and some of them were destroyed. I also saw a few glow light lamps, broken glass beer bottles, sensor lights, and garbage in the middle of the road.

In this letter I want to convey the message to all parents to please teach their kids not to do this type of mischief when people are sleeping. In this way we all could save the personal property from damage, beautiful human lives from accidents, and the environment, too.

In my opinion this is due to lack of supervision and good behaviour and less time spent with their children.

I am an immigrant here in beautiful B.C., Canada. I am writing to the editor for the first time. I hope to convey the message to all good parents of kids who are doing very wrong things, especially during summer vacation.
