Despite this. As a matter of fact. anyone who steps foot on these islands would be amazed by its own peacefulness alone. This surely has something to do with the education system. For this all. it is evident that a significant percentage of students who are exposed into the community after their school life often end up committing crimes such as drug abuse. bright tropical sunshine and the rare. the crime rates of the nation have escalated drastically.27% if we compare the crime rates of 2011 and 2012 alone. one of its kind coral reefs. one would not resist considering. This maybe because likewise Dr Jameel ( as cited in by Rasheed. Maldives has been infamous for its unique golden white sandy beaches.English for written Communication Assignment Over the years. Given this uncomfortable condition within the society. it has been imprinted in most of the parents and teachers minds that. Besides all these magnificence. Scouts and Girl Guide. within the last few decades or so. Assault or Sexual offences have been also revealed up to higher heights into the society. is it the education system of the nation to be blamed? Or is it some other factor? Admit or not. other than holding a few awareness programs in some schools rarely (which is not good enough). the raising trend of using children as a medium to commit crimes. modern dangerous crimes such as Murder. 2005. para. 2). the number of crimes has increased up to 21. in schools which encourage good 6|Page . Despite. With all this being said. it is observed that although there are extracurricular activities like Cadet. 1). This leads to lack of support to develop the qualities of the students. This failure is responsible that students tend to achieve remarkable success in studies they are even vulnerable in combating against the crime picture. the destination has been considered as a paradise on the surface of the earth. It plays an impactful role as the education system is so much result oriented (Ugail 2012. Indeed as the courts and the police department of the state are concerned children under 18 years. Band. According to Maldives police service (2013). the best student is determines by his or her academic results and a tremendous effort is put forward by the school and parents in order that their students would get higher grades. para. share a great deal in the percentage of criminals (2011. gang fights and robberies. 1) mentions. we see that nothing is done to prevent this. Besides not uncommonly. in restricting the education system to address the issues concerning the increase of crimes. para. No major action is embarked on to instruct student towards fine manners and norms.

2013). As a matter of fact. Most students are influenced by the programs they see which are irrelevant to their age which results to encourage most of the students to commit crimes. Moreover the most important factor which must be implemented is often neglected to a disappointing extent in our schools. Crimes such as assault. It is essential to teach the students of these good manners and make our students enthusiastic to the only way of life if we want to decrease the rate of crimes in the society.English for written Communication Assignment qualities. various irregularities as far as students are concerned are likely to be interrupted as these ways are completely alien to us Maldivians. most of the media we are exposed are the western media of its culture and lifestyle is total contrary to ours. Instead. Ultimately the routine of the west is much more preferred among our students and causes the students are presented to crimes as the standards of the crimes in the west and the crimes that we consider are quite inconsistent. presenting a discipline prize once a year would not be of any use. 2013. It is the information and the practices of the Islamic lifestyle. Certainly it must be our way of life and if we obey those ways and manners. the crime rates show a significant raise on the years with the maximum conflicts in the country (MPS. Yet we have only 3 periods of Islamic studies each week at our school. the community would be ideal of its peacefulness. One of this is the political instability the nation has been in throughout the years. without taking some of the other factors in the community into account. This creates the interest for the child to imitate as he would underestimate the seriousness. oftentimes the youth becomes victims of their political interests and is opened to commit crimes. Another key factor is the influence of the mass media. Moreover. the country’s political leaders fall in short to provide the youngsters with productive opportunities. Mass media brings a huge boost of influence to our little children (Mansoor. 7|Page . Clearly. vandalism. Furthermore. corruption among others are common in the political back ground. Many students imitate what they see in TV or other relevant media source. Therefore. But it is miserable to witness that it is given so much weak attention to create love for the religion in the souls of our students. Yet with all these failures in the education system. para. not much attention is given to these activities by the schools. we cannot blame the system for the increase of crimes. many crimes take place within the context of politics. The subject also limits to teach good qualities in Islamic heritage. In addition. For an example a child who often watches action movies would not be intimidated to fight likewise. 6).

it is imperative to highlight that further studies by the concerning authorities have to be undertaken in order to reduce the crime rates in this blessed nation. it would not be safe for anyone to blame the education system alone for the increased crime rates. gives more priority to academic results or is unable to aware the students of the crimes. 8|Page .English for written Communication Assignment Based on all the factors and a critical evaluation. the other influences on students would be considerably influential like the effects of the media or the political unsteadiness which arguably would correlate on the crime rates. Although the system has failed to spread Islamic values effectively. Before concluding.

Nurses and other feminine roles in the society there are raising debates if men are as equally good at being a parent as a woman. women could show the kids of being a good role model by giving the appropriate loving and caring. This further develops the relationship between mother and the baby even after birth. In these modern days. mother provides her baby with breast milk for almost two years. Note that men also show and tell the kids of these good norms but it is the women’s communication and listening skills which enables the children to duplicate them more efficiently. Surely this is achieved simply because the child shares the mother’s womb for nine months. In addition. Moreover this is how it is in within the animals. Women are the caretakers. By this manner they learn to share interact with other. They are most of the time the emotional part of a relationship. with mostly men as Chefs.English for written Communication Assignment This is the era of men and women equality as many may claim. is it the time for men to finally change their dominant role in the society? Or is it still women’s job to look after the children? As a matter of fact I don’t believe so. Women also demonstrate their children of good manners and norms of the society. Women are good communicators and often good listeners. This can be incomparable if we look to develop a similar physical bond with the father. 9|Page . Women can undoubtedly create intimidating relationships with their off springs. Moreover after birth. study and also respect each other. Interactions with the caring mothers would imprint a long lasting picture in the children’s mind to be patient and deal tasks critically. Another major reason which proves that women are good parents is that they are forgiving and caring compared to men. But it is simply for the fact that they are too good at raising the children of the society and that task is much more important to the society then being a business woman or so A child obviously shares a closer bond with his or her mother for certain. This feature in the women’s soul comes handy especially to when generate the children’s attitudes. They are. While women continue raising their voice to be more active in the society. That is not because they are incapable of doing other active roles in the society or not that they are brave enough. This bond can never be easily broken and this would be instrumental in raising the child. Surely a man would fail miserably to deliver such an impression on their kids because the feature is basically not in their genes. This is the nature’s way of bringing up the little ones.

Despite all the philosophers and sciences result in contrast. Also the courts also at certain conditions consider making grandmothers the primary caretakers even if the child’s father is alive. This signifies the importance the religion gives to women to be the parents of their children. the constitutional courts also favor women to be the caretaker of the child in divorce cases (Writefix. Moreover a woman who raises her children in a proper manner is rewarded by issuing free ticket to immortal heavens. we cannot neglect the features in women such as women share an intimidating bond. Our religion solemnly dictates that women must be responsible for raising the children of the society while men must take part in providing the financial support. women indefinitely are better at being parents then men. forgiveness and also the skills that they acquire such as their good communication skill along with their listening skills. A society would run really smoothly if women do their role of raising the children as a good parent while men must continue to provide the necessary financial support to the family. their capability of expressing feelings such as caring.English for written Communication Assignment To back this logic. Clearly this would not be without any moral.d). It is evident that courts take this decision by referring the above factors in consideration. Moreover. n. So it is certain proof that women can be unbeaten to offer best conditions to raise a good child compared to men. 10 | P a g e . Considering all these factors. the decree in the religion and the fact those courts give the legitimacy for women to be the parents. nothing earthly can over judge this decree. To sum up. The best reason that ensures that women are the better parents is that the only way of life guides us that way.
