The experience shared in my story has helped me appreciate self love better and has allowed me to enter a space of empathy that not many are fortunate to experience. It serves as an anchor for how I approach many things today.
The story is about an event that occurred, orchestrated by my mother. I felt that it would be a great story to share about the communal nature of raising a child. This was quite typical exercise in Africa: whether in urban or rural setting. It is a story I actually share a lot with people to illustrate a number of points but mainly that whipping kids may be less effective in teaching children life lessons. My late mother, I like to say, was the Queen of Creative Punishments. The story also is a homage to my mother, who not only was a great story maker but also supported my literary and performance arts endeavors.
This has been a very touching situation that I and my family have been bearing the pains for a long time. I chose the story because many people out there find themselves in the same situation as my family so I think it will inspire others to be careful as seen from the advise I gave at the end
