Renowned radio personality, Toke Makinwa said most parents normalize child abuse thinking its lessons.
The lifestyle entrepreneur’s view on child abuse which was disclosed on social media was also shared on Trend-In, “Silverbird Today” show.
In her words, “Most parents raised as they were raised, normalized child abuse without even knowing it was abuse, took the frustration of their times on the kids at home cos they didn’t know any better, the effect of all those things they casually did, how they spoke harshly, affects many still”,
“Funny as an adult now you almost understand and forgive our parents for not knowing better that they were also adulting, dealing with issues as we are dealing with now, raising themselves as they were raising you with no manual, no support group, internet, no exposure”,
“So many parents couldn’t normalize saying “I love you” to their kids. Even when told that they were loved, their response often times was “Thank you ” lot of our parents were raised worse.”
