Teens in rural Haiti rich in family relationship, culture

I guess growing up without a computer, internet, Iphone, Ipod, or you name it, actually has some value. A recent study has found that most Haitian teenagers, specially those living in the country side are very rich individuals, compared to the rich kids im more developed countries such as US, Canada, France, etc..


Sa se pa pou Ti Moun mal Apri nan Potoprins. Se ti "Payisan"

Now I know you are going to jump on me for saying something like this.

Here is what the University of Illinois study found:

1) Haitian kids are very rich in Family relationships. They have a strong sense of family obligation.

2) Haitian children are strongly rooted in their own culture and very attached to Haitian culture.

As a result, Haitian children are more resilient individuals. They believe that they should respect and obey their parents

"Mezanmi Se konyè-a moin komprann Komman Ti moun moin yo Ki fet O Zeta Zini fè Parese konsa"
