“Based on comments from social media posts, I can now confirm that 90% of comments came from people that were abused in childhood & are now Damaged adults with majority stating that they were severely flogged by their parents….. So they don’t see anything wrong with another child being beaten or flogged….
Beating with a weapon, flogging with a belt or stick/cain or any form of Violence to a child is Psychological maltreatment which then causes a child to have maladaptive attachment behaviours.. Iwaniec (2006) in his argument on causes of psychological behaviours in a child whereby d carer/ parent is hostile to the child in some ways as discipline by beating/ violent correction which in turn damages d child’s self esteem, Degrades a sense of achievement, Diminishes a sense of belonging, Prevents healthy development & takes away a child’s sense of worth/well-being.
Nigerian i can sadly but confidently say is a country filled with 90% of Damaged adults who are currently also violently damaging their wards/wives/husbands & I hear some are now using their parents for money rituals due to d anger they still bear not adding Greed…….
I weep for that Nation & the 10% of actualised people living amongst them . Violence both as discipline or for corrections only damages a person more. That’s why A lot of people are mentally/psychologically suffering . Abuse is a Norm”my father beats me so husband/wife can beat too’ ……. D Government is Not d problem…. D People are …… You need Education/Awareness/change mindset/beliefs…..
Try have a good day ……. if you can………#living#lovin #learning #laughing
I am so Grateful to God for having Dual Nationalities , How would I have coped“, Victoria Inyama concluded.
