Why I Stopped Spanking My Children - Foluke Daramola


Famous Yoruba Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola-Salako reveals that she stopped spanking her children after she realized the brutal act does not say the child will stop misbehaving.

Foluke Daramola has shown undying love for her children on social media and it makes one to wonder if they don’t have their usual parent-child bickering time.

The actress said in an interview that over the years, she realized that using cane on children doesn't means they wont misbehave.

See what she said below;

“I have learnt that you don’t need to shout at your children for them to be better. As a parent, you have to understand the weaknesses and strengths of your children. If you need to apologise to your children, please do.

With that, you will not push them outside and they will remain your friends. In the past, I used to beat my children but I don’t do that again because it doesn’t solve anything. Whenever I talk to my daughter, she stays calm. But those times I used to whip her, I realised that she became tougher. I felt that she could stop telling me things about her and I didn’t want that for myself.”

Describing motherhood as fun and challenging at the same time, Foluke said,

“When they become teenagers, you have to take your time to understand them. If care is not taken, they can grow away from you and you will not know them anymore. Also, I don’t want to do anything that will make my children have inferiority complex.”
