Dysfunctional families are the cause of the society’s problems. Products of these broken or unnurtured units can be bitter when they grow up, succumb to drug addiction, or get a twisted mind that leads them to commit crimes. Few are lucky to make their pains as inspiration for their struggle to get better in life, but still the scars remain. The President knows that and perhaps after his failure to his son, Baste, he is anxious with his newly-born grandson from his daughter with his first wife, Davao Mayor Sarah.

Time is Short but the President Made it
Duterte arrives at the Davao Doctors Hospital already past midnight on March 3. This is after two speaking events in Cebu. He is obviously tired but an image of a happy President as seen in a hospital cap and gown. He poses for a photo beside baby Stonefish in an incubator. Despite his busy schedule, he made sure to make time for the new addition of the first family and made it the very next day after he is born on March 2.
Drug War: Disable Drug Apparatus
Since the drug trade already flourishes for decades in the Philippines, it is very hard to stop or control it if the president is left alone in the drug war. Collateral damages arise after tying to disable drug apparatus. Lawmakers do their part by resorting to the death penalty – but scraping heinous crimes and rape in the bill just does not make sense for the people.
What Families Can Do
Perhaps, it’s time to go back to basic with our Filipino custom where mothers stay at home while fathers go out to work. Anyway, if women opt to continue working, they might as well learn some computer and IT skills online and work remotely. It’s like earning dollars without leaving home. It is not easy but once learned and mastered, it’s the best solution to prevent family problems and drug addiction – thereby a big help in the president’s drug war.
What the Government can Do
Fast, free, and realiable internet for all must be top priority. To create jobs in a third world country is hard enough – but providing an infrastructure that can bring the nation to progress without the risk of ending up with a dysfunctional family is very ideal and possible. TESDA trainings in this kind of work are helpful. Financial aids can be offered just to buy a single computer for each applicant. The government might be surprised how many volunteers they can get to train interested Filipinos. Online experts can only be too willing to impart their acquired skills for nation building. The world changes rapidly. Filipinos can only be too smart in going with the flow. After all, they are currently a popular online work force with endless opportunities. This way, the basic tradition of nurturing the family is undertaken while finances are not sacrificed. What do you think?
