Children will always see the world as it is, and when they play pretend, it will always be a mirror of the environment we are bringing them up in and the society we are exposing them to. We adults often do not realize how far down the hole we have already dug ourselves into, and in the process drag our children with us.
This child’s play has become too frighteningly real and disturbing, especially in this society where the population growth has gone unchecked. While it is just a balloon under that shirt, there is no telling what is already ingrained in the innocent mind.
Our education system may have addressed the basics like teaching Jenny Rose how to write her name…
…but does it teach about the consequences of being too premature or irresponsible, or both? Has society been too busy making a living and have forgotten that it is the numbers that define the quality of life? Hasn’t anybody realized that all the arguments about population issues are being debated by people who do not have to fight off siblings for their share of the only meal for the day?
