WARNING: Some viewers may find the content of this video disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.
The ‘hidden’ incidences of torture that happen at the hands of adults on young children rarely receive attention unless an appalling case is highlighted and creates short-lived public outcries. Much of this remains uncountable, unknowable, and frankly deeply entrenched in our daily dealings.
Maltreatment of children has now become the norm of our society. You can see a thousand examples around you, especially after it reflects in the behavior and subconscious of a child being a victim of it. Don’t study properly and the whiplash awaits you, right? Previously, a video of a woman torturing a child while teaching went viral and took the country by storm.
It may also be recalled that last year, an 8-year-old girl was beaten mercilessly by her employers. The reason? She accidentally released their exotic parrots. Abuse, violence, and ill-treatment of small children need to be wiped away from our society. It does not mend anything, rather breaks apart all pieces.
