But the society seen to strip the child naked owing to it engineering policy, which rather are almost undermining has present and neglecting his interest. The inverse now be the case as a result of these malfunction of the society the teacher when a contrastive insight among the students have been able to note several differences in the behaviour of the student some of which are irrational and not acceptable to be satisfied for a moral conduct.
