Happy New Month! Welcome to the beginning of the rest of the year :-)
Now for today's topic.
Every Nigerian child knows what a cane is. I am sure some children probably jumped out of the womb screaming their first words. I believe those words came from the same pool (pick yours): koboko, cane, NEPA, kpoto-kpoto, etc. Some of the more tush babies said "Mama" or "Papa" as their first words. I am pretty sure my first words were "Relentless." I can't prove it. Neither can you.
Anyway, since every child knows what cane is, it means that parents (and relatives and any other wicked adult) introduced this
Let me put this another way.
One thing I have noticed about American parents is that they show a LOT of affection for their children, and for each other generally. They kiss, hug, and otherwise physically show their love for their children.
For the average Nigerian child, I would say that your parent hugging you is quite unusual. I think it is a generational thing, as in people in my parents' and grandparents' generation were raised in very strict households and respecting your elders somehow involved physical distance from them as well.
I have no doubt that Nigerian parents love their children. So, my question is how exactly do Nigerian parents show their love and affection for their children? Kindly share.
