I am an indian girl and I have a younger brother of around seventeen. He wants to buy a phone from his friend of 40,000 in 10,000, who has got the phone via some illegal method. I have tried to make him understand but he is not getting my point. Please help me and tell me how to make him understand that this is not good. I would be waiting for your reply.
Your letter is received and read. Here is our guidance
In this age of body, there is uncontrolled power, both mental and physical. And this time is very important in life. This is a deciding age, when we realise MANY new things about life. We then decide a way to go. Where to lead our life. Understand this.
Hence it is parents utmost duty to guide their children very well when they are in such an age. Being elder sister, you also can explain. If explanation of what is right and what is wrong to do doesn’t work, then you can count on this. See – experience is a great teacher.
If he makes a mistake, and then faces its result, then at that time he must realise that this was wrong.
Of course buying a stolen phone is NOT wrong because you have not stolen. But if you buy a stolen thing, then you have betrayed your own self.
What will you do with this expensive phone? Which may be earned by someone with great difficulty?
A human being must learn to work hard to earn what he eats. This will give you the greatest satisfaction. Learn this in this age. Because after time passes, it will be difficult.
