Mayor Isko Warned Parents Of Children Living On Streets: Pananagutin Ko Kayo

In a press briefing, Mayor Francisco "Isko" Moreno warned the parents of minors living in the streets saying they will be held responsible for their children’s action and condition.

Moreno made the statement after he was asked what happened to the so-called "solvent boys" seen on the streets. These street children sniff solvent, a chemical used for pharmaceutical and industrial products like paint and varnish, for its narcotic effect.

He made the statement after he was asked about what happened to the “solvent boys” seen on the streets.

"Meron pa rin, panaka-naka," the mayor said. "One of the main issues that i raised before the MDSWD (Municipal Department of Social Welfare and Development) and to our policemen is to kunin yung lahat ng solvent boy sa avenida, Rizal Avenue, mga parks, and so on and so forth, tapos dalhin sa MDSWD tapos dalhin Boy's Town," he said.

"Alam ko na challenging magpalaki ng anak, totoo yan, lahat naman tayo nakararanas niyan. Pero yung isoga mo nang isoga yung anak mo sa kalye, tapos yung parang balewala na lang lang sa iyo, na bahala na, e tingin ko naman wala namang masama na kung yung mga magulang ng mga batang ito makausap ko ng masinsinan," he said.
