An embattled woman cries out for advice following her husband’s response to her action of reprimanding their son.
In narration to a relationship adviser, the woman stated that the disagreement started after she cautioned her 1-year-old son for touching his father’s food.
The father, however, frowned at it and requested a compulsory apology to the son by kneeling to him.
Read the narration below …
“On Friday night, I served my husband food when he came back from work, immediately he opened the soup my baby ( 1 year 3 months) put his hand in the soup immediately and carried meat so I spanked his born born that why did he do that, its wrong and a bad behaviour too.
My husband got angry with me that why will I beat his son in his presence for carrying meat that he bought with his own money?
He said I should kneel down and apologise to the boy and him too, I immediately knelt down and apologise to him, but I told him that I can’t kneel to apologise to a child I gave birth to, so he left the food, took the boy out to a nearby restaurant and they ate there.
Since then he has stopped eating at home, nor talk to me. This morning, I woke him up very early and told him that I want us to talk, but he said he can only have anything to do with me any time I kneel and apologise to his son.
Please my fellow mothers, what should I do, is it that I should not spank the boy if he does something bad?”
