Bumalik tayo sa ating kultura na ang mga bata ay natututo at naaayos ang paguugali dahil sa mga Kwento ni Lola Basyang ( Volume 2) at Bugtong Bugtong (Vol 2) na nagsisimbulo sa kani-kanilang mga lolo at lola, ama at ina . Itoy mga lumang pamamaraan upang maturuan ang mga bata lalo ng mga mabubuting asal at kung paano makitungo sa mas nakatatanda sa kanila. Sa aking pananaw kailangan na tayo ay maalarma sapagkat ang mga bata ay hindi na natututong makipag laro sa kanilang mga kapwa bata bagkus , sila ay nakaharap lamang sa mga computer at wlang panahon sa pisikal na laro at pakikipag talakayan upang malaman nila ang kanilang mga layunin at obligasyon sa kani-kanilang pamilya o bilang isang mamamayang Pilipino.
