Police Found Mother Seen on Video Beating her Child Mercilessly
The Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) reported earlier that the mother seen in the now viral video, beating her child brutally has been found.
Reports from Rochelle Dixon, public relations and communications manager at the CPFSA are that “We have located the mother and child, both are living in a community in Westmoreland.
A team has spoken to members of the community and they are saying that this kind of behaviour is unlike the mother, she has never used this type of method to discipline the child who is about four or five years old.
“The beating happened in September, and we are yet to get a full report from the social worker and investigator on the scene so we don’t know about scars as yet, but the report should be done today.
The question though is how do we change the culture of how parents discipline their children in Jamaica? How do we get them to understand the long term and short term effects of corporal punishment, and how it affects the social and mental well being of children,” Dixon expressed.
