A Nigerian Lady simply known as Nkem has faced heavy criticisms after posting that parental discipline does not determine if a child will turn out good.
In a tweet through her handle, she said that some parents assumes their strictness is what made their child turn out good.
She said: “Some parents think it was their “strictness” that made their child turn out good.”
She accrued all the successes of a child to be solely the efforts and decisions the child made to be good. Many Nigerians disagrees with her and took to the comment section to lambast her for undermining the efforts of parents.
See reactions below:
Iyamval wrote in response to her: “When cultism was high in my sec sch, I didn’t join because I was think how my mum will react to it when someday they decide to come to the house.. The fear parents put in us affected the way we think and the things we do, no one would have been this good without the parents.”
A man named Everest lamented on what he described as an attempt by the current generation to make the efforts of parents invincible. He said: “This generation working so hard to make the effort of parents invisible. Like it doesn’t exist.”
She however stated that she does not intend to undermine the efforts of hardworking parents to train their children but does not subscribe to the what she described as the African style of training.
She said: “This tweet is not intended to undermine the efforts of parents . My tweet isn’t saying do not train a child. Train a child but more importantly pray they make good decisions. And of course I don’t subscribe to African parents way of training.”
This tweet is not intended to undermine the efforts of parents . My tweet isn't saying do not train a child. Train a child but more importantly pray they make good decisions. And of course I don't subscribe to African parents way of training. Thanks for stopping by. 😊— NK£M💥🔫 (@Theladyfrances_) April 7, 2021
