Aouch!

Today we were awaken by Assembly Woman inserting ginger and other herbs into her 4year old's "behind", to the 4year old's great discomfort. She roared, screamed and begged for mercy. Her pleads were met by hard slaps on her naked butt. Which of course led to more screaming.

No A-plus, abokyire..(abroad) we dont dance. For those familiar with that song.

I didn't realise that kind of punishment still happened anywhere. Poor baby.

Really?

i would have thought it was to combat constipation but this sure does sounds like cruel!

Hmmmm punishment, I don't think so.......this is a typical practise handed down by the old folks.....my mother in law performed a similar version on my 4 month old, it is a traditional and homeopathic colon cleanser, I believe there is a similar procedure for the vagina/reproductive tract (not for the squemish)

Anyway, I certainly plan to look in to it further, my husband raves that it works wonders and he remembers when it happened to him so I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt.
