When does discipline of your children cross into child abuse?
I know some of you must have read the story of theÂ 21-year-old Redeemers University undergraduate who killed his dad with a cutlass and sliced the corpse into a box. Â Well, Nigerian comedian, Wale Gates has openly revealed that he has some sympathy for the kid.
He went on a tweeting spree sharing his personal experience of having an abusive father.
According to Wale, “It might come has a surprise but I have a little sympathy for the young guy that murdered his RCCG dad. It’s easy for some of you to focus on just his actions but not what led to it. Years of probably constant beatings in the name of discipline…Since the father was this praying Saint of a man why didn’t he pray the evil away? Why did he resort to beating & biting a 21yr old MAN?”
See his complete tweets below. This issue of child abuse by parents is very disturbing and if not properly addressed, we might have more murder reports on our headlines.
