  1. How are those parents so irresponsible? Having their kids train to lie, cheat and steal at such a tender age.

  2. The person asking for a friend, are you making any sense young people taking part in criminal activities you complain, young people sharpening their debate skills you complain. You guys are the very same reason the young people of St. Lucia tend to disrespect the elderly.
    The amount of things that are unbecoming and you have been qualified without training and you doing it. “IF YOU CAN’T SAY SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT SOMEBODY JUST SHUT UP”

  3. The one who said that the young folks of Vieux Fort somking Crack cocaine from age 7 honestly I find it rather irreverent to the nature of this post. You have failed as an English student not even the main idea you can find in an article. I bet there are some from Vieux Fort in a better position than you, eating better than you and sleeping better than you we are here bring the future of tomorrow down rather than supporting as a means of fighting against some of the ills of society. You have failed as an adult, parent and as a citizen of St. Lucia
