Adaeze Yobo, wife of popular Nigerian footballer, Joseph Yobo has shared how she dealt with her daughter’s bully as she encourages parents to teach their kids well especially on how to defend themselves from bullies.
Sharing her experience in the wake of the unfortunate incident that took the life of Dowen college student, Sylvester Oromoni, the mother of three disclosed that she went to an even with her kids and noticed one boy was hitting the chest of her daughter and she was only complaining about how painful it is and not defending herself.
Not wanting to get involved, she said she sent her first son to go and defend his sister and all he did was warn the boy calmly not to touch his sister again and left but he continued hitting the chest of her daughter, then she brought in her second son who defended his sister from the bully.
The bully then came to report her second son to her and she warned him never to touch her daughter again if not she will beat him and his mother. After the warning, the young boy then shouted showing that he knew what he was doing was bad but continued doing it because he could pick on her daughter.
Following this experience, Adaeze encouraged parents to be intentional about their kids and teach them how to defend themselves from these bullies because if they don’t, they, the bullied will turn out to be bullies as well which is really bad and looking at what happened to Sylvester, no parent want that for their kids.
Adaeze’s post clearly shows that most of these bullies know exactly what they’ve been doing and are also aware that it’s wrong therefore it’s up to parents to teach their kids well not to grow to become bullies and also teach them how to defend themselves from bullies as well.
