Weekly Question (#10 & #11)

2 shared thoughts


WQ #10: I once chanced upon this little girl walking in front of the house one late summer day. She was wearing an undershirt and an underwear plus a pair of pink flip flops. I immediately took two photos of her and this was one of them (the other photo she was standing up so I didn’t choose to upload because I thought it was a little indecent for a little girl) :


I want to know your thoughts about this photo. What can you say about this?

I agree, girls (or boys) shouldn't be permitted to go outside their own homes and go roaming around public areas wearing such scanty clothing; even if it's humid and hot. Call me prude, but you are courting trouble if your kid goes out like that. It's just not proper, and there are "people" out there who are capable of doing harm to innocent kids.

Let's protect our kids ... teach them the proper way while they are still young and impressionable. Or else it might be too late.

WQ 11:
Should people heed the call of the Catholic Church to not use artificial means of contraception/reproductive health products and services OR should they go ahead, talk to their doctors and plan for how they want to practice family planning?

I must admit I am biased when it comes to something as personal as family planning. I honestly would rather talk to my doctor. No abortion for me, of course, like taking medicines or herbs that would disrupt the ongoing pregnancy (abortifacients). After all, I believe that it is a blessing if you get pregnant.

However, there is such a thing as being responsible, too. If you can't afford to support more than one kid, then precautions should be done to avoid pregnancy. That's where education is pretty important here. Specially in remote areas (or even in squatter areas located in big cities), where some families have more than three kids (and another one along the way!). Parents/couples should be made to understand the pros and cons of having a big family, specially with our current financial/political situation.

Based on my personal experience, some parents want to have more children because they think that their children will help them (usually financially) as the year passes, and take care of their parents when they become old and frail. I really don't believe in this .... sure, some children do that, but there are those who are known to have left their parents, too.

I believe that it's the other way around: I am responsible for my kid(s) and I want to make sure that they will be well-prepared when I'm old and gone. I won't obligate them to take care of me when I'm old and frail (after all, they didn't ask to be brought to this world!), but of course it would be nice if they do! lol. :D

Thanks for candidly answering the questions, Maiylah.

The two questions may be related, are related.

There are so many people with malice in their minds and having a child clothed like that out on the street is not a good idea.

I agree that it is a personal choice for those who have children or want to have children. Thing is, educating those who do not know how to do this has no real grip. Its like they give lectures, they give help but they do not do deep down to the grass root level of the problems.

hay...I think of this because I love this country and I don't want us, or our children's children to suffer more than they have to someday.

Thanks, M, see you at FF tomorrow.
