QUICK TAKE: It is a fact that most children today are behaving way beyond their age. Right, we can describe them as more inquisitive and smarter than kids of their parents’ generation.
Kids barely three years of age nonchalantly unlock smart phones, play computer games, watch videos and do other tasks that still pose a challenge to some in the “older generation.”
Back in those days, the “priorities” for most of us when we were eight would have been watching cartoons, playtime with siblings, doing homework and munching on tidbits and sweets – in no particular order.
However, reading what a bunch of rogue kids did in this story may just make you lose faith in our future generation.
A group of eight-year-olds in a school in Sabak Bernam had something more vulgar in mind.
The Star daily has reported that one of the boys forced a classmate to perform oral sex on him while four others watched the despicable act in the school toilet on Aug 13.
All this because the “victim” had asked the perpetrator how he had managed to sneak a toy gun into the school.
Wait! How the hell does an eight-year-old know about oral sex, to begin with?
What did the boy’s parents teach him at home – if at all they paid attention to whatever he was doing?
Is it something in the food kids eat nowadays that make them “blossom” a bit too soon?
The victim’s mother claimed that her son is traumatised by the incident and refuses to go back to school now.
