Keyshia Cole Shares Harrowing Childhood Experience to Warn Mothers About Leaving Their Kids With Men

With a rise in the death of infants and toddlers in the hands of their mothers’ boyfriends, uncles and other family members, singer Keyshia Cole has disclosed that her case might have turned out the same.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Cole told of how her father was absent and her drug addict mother always left her alone with men. Luckily for her, a kind family adopted her and took good care of her.

She’s now warning mothers about leaving their kids with men they “just met”.

Sharing a photo of a child with tears in her eyes, the mother of one pleaded with mothers to avoid handing their daughters over to the likes of uncles, aunts and cousins because of free daycare.

”Maybe it’s because I went thought A lot as a child, With a Father I didn’t know, and a Biological Mother who was Absentee because of drug use… , I feel ALL of THIS 100% !!!!!! babies DID NOT ASK To BE HERE!!!!

If NOT, PLEASE PLEASE!!! Take precautionary steps with birth control, before you Ruin a life, you can’t be there for!! SO SICK OF THESE CHILDREN DYING!!!! And thankful I wasn’t one of them🙏🏽.”

Cole further reflected on how thankful she is for her adoptive family but noted her upbringing could have had a different outcome. Still, she says she was exposed to things that she should not have seen.

”My adopted family took very good care of me, thankful for that, BUT MY LIFE COULD’VE PLAYED OUT, Very differently.

And I THANK GOD, he ALWAYS HAD MY BACK!!!!!! 🙏🏽 But there were things that went down, and things I have seen, that I shouldn’t have. PERIOD. Parents BE THERE FOR YOUR CHILDREN! 🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁.”

“Unfortunately, a lot of mothers do this and never notice that something is different with their children. It’s so sad.”

”So deep, so true.. this is why my kids don’t go many places.. call me strict if you will I call it being careful and realistic.” said another.

”I know right. No one ever blames the absentee fathers. They have just as much responsibility.” another wrote.

”As a school counselor, It hurts to see the girls and boys deal with the excruciating pain and the toll abuse plays on their lives. These kids aren’t bad, just abused and neglected and in need a lot of love.”
