This makes just ONE MORE argument against some parents being allowed to homeschool their children!…
Cape Coral, Florida-
This woman was arrested after beating her 5-year-old son with a belt-all because the boy couldn’t write the number “3”. (Um… let’s see, at 5 years old, I’m pretty sure I was still writing my 3s backwards, and even writing my name clearly was an achievement.
Well, Carol Refeena Kanhai, 41, got totally peeved while “homeschooling” and demanding her child do something that may have been a bit hard for him? She lost it. According to the local news,
“When the child had trouble with “3,” Kanhai went over to help and showed the child how to do it, police said. But when the child continued to struggle, Kanhai became frustrated and hit the child with a belt in the back, according to police.”
She was heard telling the young boy, “It’s me and your (expletive) today. I’m going to kill you with licks!” the arrest report says. Steve Kanhai (her husband) told police his wife has used too much force on the children previously and that he did not agree with it, the arrest report says. So…what took so long Dad? I mean, was he going to stand by and wait for the boy to fail a geometry test, so mom could really beat him badly?
The 5-year-old had “multiple red marks and raised lumps on his back”. Kanhai gave the belt over to police and it was kept as evidence, police said. Carol Kanhai was charged with child abuse without great harm. She was released Sunday after posting $5,000 bond.
People like this woman here, have NO business home-schooling their kids. I don’t care what they say, if she flips out over the boy over not writing 3 correctly-can imagine what she would have done when it came time for him to learn his addition and subtraction facts? I shudder just thinking about it. Homeschooling is not a right IMO, and not every parent is cut out to do it. Half the parents who are home-schooling their kids today, don’t know what they are doing, and some of them only escaped school through the skin of their teeth!
Then there are the ones like this mom, who won’t send their little Johnny to school because they don’t believe in the public school system, bullying,etc-but they sit home and ‘beat the devil’ out of their kids.Nope, homeschooling isn’t for everyone.
