Chronicle Of Blog Visitor Narrative...

 Hmmm




STAND ALONE NARRATIVE
SEVERE PUNISHMENT



I have a neighbor that is always hitting her kids, two kids; 3 yrs and an almost 2yrs old. She constantly uses this mean voice when they do wrong(typical toddler mischief) and doesn’t hesitate to hit them with cane and slippers.


 She also used shaming and beating as her own potty training method, whenever they messed up on themselves she and her maid would sing songs to shame them for peeing or pooping on themselves or even Beating them so they would ‘learn’ not to continue doing it. I always criticize her whenever I witness as this keeps breaking my heart for the young children she would always say I should continue raising my own children with “oyibo” method of (talking over their wrong doings with them and being intentional with discipline) she said all children raised that way grow up spoilt and disrespectful while she on the other hand was raised same way she is raising her kids and she turned out well.



 My 5yr old is so scared of her and I even pointed that out to her and she told me she likes it that way as kids would always be In their best behavior around her.

 I love her kids so much like my own, one of them is actually my god daughter and it breaks my heart each time I see her being so harsh on them, especially the 3 yr old. 


I always tell her to let kids be kids that they would outgrow most of these things but no, she never spares the rod at the slightest mishap. Do I just face my own children and mind my business ?





*I hate to say this but you need to mind your business since she is not listening to you to avoid falling out with her.....
I would have advised that you report her to the appropriate authority but she will know you are the one...
#However if you noice injuries on the body of the ids then dont mind your business anymore, look for a way to either confront her or report...I hate this kind of discipline...Most of us had it nd have scars to show for it and it is God that saved those that were not maimed or died from it......

  1. The biggest problem with parenting in Nigeria is this 90% of parents have mental health issues which goes unresolved. U see this beating of infants is how it starts and it gets worse... How bad you may ask... It get to mother I repeat mother's putting pepper in the genitals and anus of duagther pre and post menstral ages. While the father's use their authority to abuse the wards sexual or otherwise. Father's steipping there own biological child naked and flogging them. We have all lost our way. Pre-colonialism we never did this physical abused was learnt from another culture, one of hate and segregation

Hmmmm.. it was not funny all at that time and am still trying to recover from it.

  7. Poster you didn't mention talking to her husband or reporting her to her husband. you can take a video of her beating those children on different occasions, then send it to her husband to please talk to her.

    Some parents believe that beating children badly will make them out grown children attitude.

    I also like parents who discipline their children when they are misbehaving but not go kill them before their time.

  9. Poster,abeg face front. You will soon be accused of nonsense if you persist with advising her. You should only step in when the kids have serious injuries. Just be kind to them whenever you are alone with them. Sometimes,you can never change one's mentality especially when it comes to training their kids. Just try and be a safe place for those kids.

  13. What people beat kids is beyond me. I've learnt to mind my business. I have never beaten my daughter and people say I spoil her but whenever we are out, she's the most well behaved amongst kids her age. With all the beating their kids still misbehave. I didn't beat and by 2 years old she stopped wearing diapers.

  14. Poster mind your business. Leave her to train her children the way she feels it's the best for her. Sebi they're her children and not yours. All the beating we chop from our parents but we didn't die rather we grew to become disciplined and well behaved.Beating no dey kill children.
    I'm even happy to see that we still have mothers like her unlike the common ones we have now,that all they care about is teaching their kids how to wear bum short,makeup and wigs.yoy will enter their house the kids will just be staring at you until she say Escoba can't you greet,greet aunty na.
    Abeg leave her o,after all the Bible say spear the rod and spoil the child.

    1. What of arrow the rod?

      That is what your excuse is, "our parents did that and we didn't die", forgetting that a people are still traumatised, with diagnosed and undiagnosed mental challenges, due to severe discipline and "spearing" the rod.

    2. I'm the same Bible the shepherds had their rods to guide the sheep and steer them gently away from danger, they didn't use the rod to strike them, and those were animals, not humans.

      That's how parents raise children who harbor resentment and bitterness towards them and distance themselves when they grow up.

    3. Excessive beating is why my siblings and I can’t stand our parents. We all moved out as soon as possible and they are now wondering why we don’t like to call or visit. How can you brutalise children in the name of “training” and expect them to automatically become close to you when they become adults? It doesn’t work like that. It may have worked in their parents time but not anymore. Times have changed and it’s important to learn how to adapt.

  15. Stella is right my dear. In less you see something extreme or life threatening or bottom line abusive then mind your business. Just keep being friendly with her kids so they can open up to you easily just in case.
    Every child responds differently to discipline.
    Growing up we had songs we sing for defaulters e.g meh meh meh meh meh Annie is a naughty girl shame shame shame...SHAME!! If you bed wet we'll add peepee head, shit shit head. If you fail we'll add garri garri head and so on. Yes, it had its limits and possibly extreme but I'd like to believe I turned out fine. I'm still in contact with a few of my childhood friends and we sing it for each other when we meet most of the time.
    Growing up, if you don't want them to sing for you then you better be on your best behaviour.
    We were flogged too. Nothing extreme but if you don't won't some ass whooping you also have to be in your best behaviour. Make no mistake, we also had quiet corners, sleep time, kneel down, pick pin, grounding and so on. I think a good mix of all forms of discipline is key.
    You're a parent not a friend. You're first a parent and you can be both but you cannot be a friend before a parent. They're kids, it's their time to go through life with your guidance. They'll make their own friends who'll be their agemate and possibly confidant. Yes, let kids be kids but kids shouldn't be left unattended to or they may get hurt. Your job as a parent is to find the right balance for your kids.

  16. It's heartbreaking seeing s child beaten like anyhow all in the name of discipline. Sometimes these unnecessary beating doesn't make the child because better, it makes a child hardened. In some cases, the child does the wrong thing and will be like "is it not only flogging?" Our African parents are just over doing this flogging thing. There are other ways to instill discipline, you can flog someone also but bit everything and not to the extreme.
    For your neighbor keep talking to her or try to distract yourself from hearing her kids cry. There's nothing else you can do that won't cause issues between you and her

    1. The kids will be fine last last but will end up perpetuating the same violence or even worse and then it will be a never-ending cycle.
      And yet some wonder why violence is so wide-spread in Nigeria, from madams beating their maids, to husbands beating their wives, to policemen and managers, etc. The hurt people hurt other people.
      But, "they will be fine last last."

    2. The kids will not be fine, these are other children's potential spouses, roomates in the nearest future.
      I'm all for light spanking but going overboard with the discipline is wrong.
      2 and 3 year old chopping that kain beating is bad.

  18. There is no definite way to parental success. Train your kids the way that suits you regardless of what people like this poster says. Provided you are not deliberately hurting your kids According the developmental psychologist Diana Braumrind there are 4 types of parenting

    Authoritarian
    Authoritative
    Permissive
    Uninvolved/neglectful

    There is helicopter parenting- because of the drive for the success of their kids parents become overbearing.

    Whatever type of parenting you pick must be for the interest of your kids

    Until she changes the mindset about children raised the way you are raising yours endup disrespectful, you can't help her.

    1. Nobody says you should not spank kids but punishment should be commensurate with the offense and age of the child. For example, not being potty trained at this age isn't the fault of the child, it's a normal developmental process, so why is the mother shaming them for it?

      Also why using cane and slippers on 3 year old? What happened to hand or fingers. Well, except it's a small cane Sha but a few taps of the hand should be enough.

      My mother shouted a lot and sometimes beat me for things that were not my fault and I know a lot of it was from her own frustrations with life, it had nothing to do with me. Grown up, I have had to learn how to modulate my voice and behavior so Im not harsh because I took on her manner of talking and shouting. I don't hate her but I wish her punishment style was different.

  24. Your efforts is not appropriated by the recipient who happens to be a mother from the pit of hell. it's very glaring your neighbour was dealt with in the name of beating by her parents while growing up and she is trying to translate it by inflicting injury and bodily harm on her children.. Pls learn to mind your business except when the lives of her children are at risk that's when you can invite the appropriate authorities thank you.

  25. I grew up with a mum who can use beating to finish your life and a dad who never raised a finger to hit me and often fought my mum for beating us. As I grew I came to understand that many parents who go too far with beating are either taking their frustration out on the kids or themselves also damaged.

    For me, it is important to think of a cain as a tool, and you as a parent being a skilled craftsman with many other tools in your toolset.

    I have been living in the UK as a parent for some years now and my current conclusion is that both extremes of these practices are unhealthy. You don't want to adopt beating as the only or main tool of discipline, but the alternative where parents are just their kids' doormat is also not good. My position is that the children must know that the cain is not excluded from the parental tools of discipline. It is not preferred, but not excluded. Now and again, kids will seriously test your boundaries to the point where even an angel will go crazy.
    However, in a home where they know their parent still has this tool called a cain, only the threat of it's use and an occasional threat carried out may be all you need.
