Buddie, I dont know where to start but yes our peoples' attitude need to change.I have been living overseas for over ten years and every now and then I go back home to visit my old folks.Every time I am there,all my extended family come aroud to our house for a chat and the usual mauswara.Not only do they update me on all the happenings in the village but a list of all their debts, which include brideprice,comphensation,school fees etc... and their problems.The thing that gets my attention the most is during a normal day, the very people that come around complaining about their problems are sitting around at a public market place or somewhere similar doing absolutely nothing. Yet they 've big piece of uncultivated land just laying there to be worked on.How on earth do we explain that??????
I guess you know what I mean, anyway in the past I kind of listen to all their craps but now.....I tell them I am not allowed to bring foreign money into the country so I try to be like them too, ha ha ha.. trust me it does work.But instead I try and work in my parents garden just to make them change their attitude.I also tell my extended family that while I am gone my parents can have some food and money from what I am doing here in their gardens.
Ok em tasol ,that is one of my many experiences.
good luck to all who read this article,...
