I truly hate, that when parents beat their kids they blame it on culture, that’s not culture, that’s ignorance. You can discipline your child by whooping them without causes server bruises, or in this case death.
According to BlackMediaScoop, an African-American couple is facing charges of assault and reckless endangerment for causing the death of Sherika Stewart’s [the girlfriend] 3-year-old daughter Ahyna Louis-Hardy after a “spanking” went wrong.
Leon Walters [the one who beat the little girl] says he did it because Ahyna refused to say her ABC’s, the couple claims – in their culture, children get “pow-pow” if they disobey. — Really????
Like I said, it’s one thing to whoop your child, but to cause bruises on a 3-year-old when you can just take away TV is beyond me. Some people don’t need to be parents, and unfortunately, because of their ignorance a 3-year-old little girl has lost her life she didn’t get to even start.
When is beating a child over board? When can you not just say, “I’m sorry this is part of my culture.” Post your thoughts below!
