Etinosa Idemudia, an actor, has voiced her displeasure with the practise of mercilessly beating children as a means of punishment.
According to the actress, this old method of disciplining kids will only produce damaged kids who will grow into “damaged angry violent adults.”
The actress claims that mercilessly beating children as punishment will instil in the child the belief that the best way to right a wrong is by abuse, and that the child will turn the same violence towards others.
She went on to say that “spear the rod and punish the child,” and that the rod has been used to punish children for years, but society is only getting worse, with “violence rising and values decreasing.”
“At what stage of decadence do we realize that the rod/violence method of discipline is not effective“? she quizzed
Etinosa has therefore called for this method of disciplining children to be stopped and urged that, new ways rather be found.
