"criticised his parents"? But his parents have to work away. The grand-parents should be prosecuted for child abuse and negligence.

I am full of pity for the little boy with no one to care for. His grandparents could provide the n ...

True enough, there are millions of children left behind in villages while their parents work in often low paid menial jobs in the cities.

However that doesn't excuse his grandparents from allowing him to smoke at his age.

All you people should smoke.

Sad, but not entirely new. We saw the photograph showing an INDONESIAN boy aged 5 doing the exact same thing. If I remember well, there was another picture taken of a Cuban aged far below ten.

Interestingly, none of the boys lives in a developed nation. But in developed countries, boys start smoking at age 12 even though it is illegal. They do it on the sly while in developing countries the children do it with their parents' tacit approval... it seems.

The wee boy is allowed to smoke now, which is why so.many are called little emperors...
There will be little chance of ever saying no to this child as he gets older..
grandparents need to grow a pair.
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
