Dear Mama Good to know that we still have mothers like you out there, keep it up. Keep looking at what your child is up to on socail networks & if she was using a phone, but her a Lipopotwane (the one with a torch) she will use the torch to study during load shedding, i.e if it is there in your country.

In the 1st place what does a 12year old do with a phone?? Its a very bad idea to be buying kids these top of the range phones. Kids normally become victims to perpetrators online and you find mostly these kids especially girls, they put in false age because these social sites dont have a solid age validation and parental control.

Corporal punishment teaches a child that for every mistake or disagreement one must use force to impose teachings or opinion – this can’t be the right way to teach a child and hope to raise a good citizen. Children must be taught Love and Care, not that violence is the answer. Not every child will take a beating kindly because some ends up hating their parents for this foolish and unkind discipline method. You might find that this Parent didn’t even warn the child about this yet she sees fit to hit her?

I really don’t see how a sensible woman would go out with a guy that asks for a naked pic; it really beats me because I honestly don’t think a caring and loving guy would ask a loved one to send such pics; worse when they understand technologies. Its image worship again
