Former beauty queen, Iheoma Nnadi, has advised parents against calling their children names and beating them like their parents did.
Taking to her Instastories, the mum of two and wife of footballer, Emmauel Emenike, said these new generation kids are softer and built different from the older generation, and should be treated as such.
Iheoma stated that she’s already training her children not to use harsh and abusive words when speaking with people by not using the words on them.
“You know how some of our parent back then didnt know what they know now and would call us names (stupid, idiot, useless, olodo, bastard, why can’t you be like so and so) and we ended up being okay! (now they are proud of us)”
“I just hope that we aren’t doing the same to our our kids now! They weren’t built like us. This new generation kids are softer and tbh it’s a form of abuse…I am training my kids not to use such words even in a heated argument with their peers cause really those words hurt deep sometimes and are provocative.
“There can be consequences for their actions but avoid name calling and beating out the ‘devil’. And remember your kids will use those words on other kids. Don’t let your child add pain to another person’s child. Train them well.”
