An aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie has described the viral Calm Down video of a boy and his mum a clear case of child abuse.

In a post she made on her social media page, Onochie wrote that times have changed and what the woman did could not be considered as any form of discipline.

She further stated that in a more developeed country like the United Kingdom, the mother would have been charged.

She wrote:

the calm down video, is a clear case of child abuse. That was not discipline.
TIMES HAVE CHANGED
2020

Many Nigerian adults today, are suffering from the effects of similar abuse when they were children.

In the UK, the child would be in care, his mother charged

I was distressed by the calm down video. I can’t imagine the trauma that child and other children who watched it, went through.

We must make laws that protect children in our nation

There are better and more effective and humane ways of effecting behavioural changes in children.

If you recall, the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu while addressing residents of the state prior to the Sallah celebration, urged them to emulate the child and calm down in every situation.

Madam know it all why do you leave the part where the government will be paying the boy from the day he was born. Here in UK nothing will happen to the mother she only threatened him nothing more. Please if the government officials want to compare naija with UK let them start with the welfare the two governments gives to her citizens.

Mrs. Onochie is right on this, Any sensible and educated mother who watched the video will clearly see that the little boy was extremely traumatized by the horrible experience with his mother. There is nothing funny for a mother to verbally traumatized a child in that manner. From a Social Worker perspective, the mother should be charged for verbally traumatizing a child, but since she lives in a lawless country, they see what she did as something special. Nigeria needs child protective services to straighten up some crazy mothers' abusive behavior towards their children.
