Photo of the day

An 18 month old boy tied to a stick while the mother washed. This was to prevent him from wandering off. Such a sad photo to look at...

Wandering off

Mary said...

there is something very similar used in the Uk for children .....dont knw what its called . no biggie

what is strange is that the child naked, seriously in 2013 they cant wear him pant or shorts

Anonymous said...

I don't think its sad o. As long as his where the mother can see nd protect him. Ever mother does it in one way or the other the only difference is that his naked. Lol

Puhlease, this isn't child abuse! It isn't as if the child is in any danger, or if the child is in pain. I don't think Linda or anyone here cares about this child more than his mother does. You can't cry more than the bereaved...if she locked him indoors, you'd all still cry child abuse. If she backed him while she washed, you lot would still cry child abuse. Free the mother abeg.

Anonymous said...

Linda why is it a sad photo to look at??? When white folks do the dame using a "harness" for their children, we think it is cool...sometimes we do not give enough credit to nigerian women...she is probably washing the baby's and her other childrens clothes...then she has to cook and fry the things for sale...and at the same time, make sure the baby does not come into harms way...I say there is absolutely nothing wrong with the picture!!!

Linda, you should have pixelated the boy's pp. You know there are some paedos out there- don't give them fodder! That said, it is sad, but I think the mother was more ignorant than criminal. She needs a reeducation on child-raising.

This is no different from people who have their kids on a leash in various malls in the developed world to prevent the said kids from getting unruly in the mall.

This picture is only "sad" perhaps because the kid has no clothes on BUT as a mother without any help, who can really blame her?

If the child were to wander off and get hurt, into an accident, or get lost, people will say things like "Why didn't she watch her child?" "What an irresponsible woman" "God save us from mothers like this" etc.

A picture may be worth a thousand words but whose words are we listening to here; the mother OR the photographer? Food for thought

If it is sad y are you posting it?

This sort of picture you censor and cover up, this child is naked, you to are promoting child abuse.
Would you really post it if you knew this child personally or any of the stuff you post? really Linda? would you? This comment is not meant for public viewing, but for you. Please think about what you post before you post it, would you do the same if you knew them? especially children?

someone was saying something about giving the child to neighbours to look after and i think that's just very foolish. like haven't u heard of neighbours molesting kids, even male kids? at least the stick is trust worthy. it wont suddenly start touching the boy in weird places and traumatizing him for life.

I just remembered that story Linda posted about a man who was travelling with a dead baby boy in a suitcase... plus many other stories of kids being dismembered or buried alive.

Usually, when I hear/read these stories, I blame the mother. So, on that note, I think the only thing wrong with this picture is that the rope doesn't look strong enough...

How will I carry a child for 9 months, scatter my punani while giving birth and then bury the child 3 years later because of my negligence?

Ok, maybe she should've put a toy there for him to play with. Apart from that, please tie the child well! I can't shout abeg...

Linda I had a little boy like that iris of blessed memory,that boy after you tie him to a place you must lock that place otherwise hypertension for you or you beat the boy to stupor.so at times one may need to do that.sure you know it's not a common occurrence it's for special breeds like the tied boy.next time mama wear pant for your boy.

Linda u see this as sad bcos u r not yet a mother, I suspect the woman once lost this child.From the setting of the picture I see poverty so she only settled for the cheapest/easiet option by tying him to d pole to protect him, Since she can't afford a nanny and does not hv a washer to do d laundry. They obviously live in a crowded yard(face to face), sorry kiddo...

Anonymous said...

Linda please. This also happens in the Western Society. Parents tie safety belts or whatever they are called round their childrens waists to stop them wandering off in the mall or wherever. Now thats even worse because its similar to taking your dog for a walk. I do not approve of any of these methods

Why is it sad? They sell leashes for kids so I can see how it would make sense. If the child wanders off and something happens people will have something to say. There's no pleasing people so just do you jere!

Its called a leash ppl. And its allowed!! Excuse her for not being able to afford d fancy one but they all serve d same purpose. As for nakedness, that too is allowed! Kids get nakewithin their homes, and if she stays in a yard, no point calling her out!! D poor will always be amongst us, so says d good books.

This is no news! My mum used to tie me to the table in her shop to avoid me wandering. She learnt to do dis after i got missing at some very tender age. she looked for me the whole day from street to street, reported the case to the police only to find me later in the evening sleeping peacefully under the bed....heheheehe!

Nothing sad about the pictures. You never jam hyper active boys of that age. The only way u can keep them in one place is to use a leash or rope(depending on affordability). As the long as the child is not hurt (and he deosnt look hurt to me, just sober). Abeg free the mum, I have two boys and i know it's not child abuse.

I am a mum and i see nothing wrong with it. In the U.K they sell colourful leashes that parents use to restrain their kids, this is no different and that is sold in shops every where and we see people dragging their kids on it. I agree the child is not as goat but better to have him close at hand than lost or stolen! By the way i would do the same!!! The only thing wrong is the child is naked but then poverty level is different for everyone! As i say ' poverty is a terrorist!!!'

I had a neighbour whose one year son was prone to wandering so she always tied him, he was one fast dude back then so I don't blame his mum for that. If this dude is like dat little boy den I support his mum jare.

Self-righteous anon 11:30pm. The boy is just 18 months old. Mr trainer.

Wise words...hopefully d kid doesn't get too used to being 'incarcerated'

Nothing like child abuse there. I witnessed the same thing in Atlanta airport, USA. A little child was tied to a post while his parents sorted out their reservations. The authorities did Not see anything wrong with dat.

Absolutely nothing wrong with this pic.

Nothing wrong with what the mother did. In fact, Oyinbo dey do am too, only that they use a proper leash. My sister used one on her 3yr old son whenever she went out while she lived in Angola. Of course she got hostile stares and rude remarks from the locals - lol

I was told my mom used to tie me to a big table when in church.On one occasion I went to d church bell to ring it, which made the whole church to assemble at prayer section before due time during a fasting period.

VCB said...

they hav sometyn similar in the US n UK for kids its called a child leash,its to keep the child close so he or she dsnt wander off

Anonymous said...

Is called hand sling ,you either tie to the buggy or to the wrist to the person the child is walking with.it stop the child from running off to the road and keep the child close the the person.

Abeg let's hear word jare, its her child not yours. A woman in my area lost her child 2 months ago while she was putting the older one through his assignment, the younger one wandered off and entered a drum of water where he got drowned and died. So its now a crime to protect her child in a way she can.

Ppl that are saying child abuse obviously don't have kids Cus if they do they wOuld know that one second of distraction can be the end of the child's life!!!! And if they do they obviously dont take care of their children themselves. In addition they are also not exposed (never left Nigeria) Cus if they have they wOuld that the western world uses such to keep their kids from wandering. I'm sure if she was white no one would think its child abuse.

I don't think it is sad photo Linda, do you know the area they live in? did you read about two toddlers found dead in ketu, a couple of month ago? it is better he tied sitting right next to his mother than anywhere else. In US and UK parents often use a rope that looks like a leash, you tie it to your wrist and your child wrist, so that you don't lose your child especially while shopping. it is no biggie.
