A Nigerian woman has recounted the abuse she suffered in the hands of her mother and she said she never wants to have kids because she doesn’t want to treat them the way her mother treated her.
Reacting, Ukwu Ose narrated her own experience growing up with her mother.
She said her mum once used a pestle to break her head. She added that she eventually ran away from home to escape abuse.
She said that when she ran away, she realized she didn’t need her anti-depressants anymore. The atmosphere at her home had been the cause of her depression.
She further stated that her mother was abused by her own parents and she took it out on her kids. As a result, she is scared of having kids of her own to avoid taking out the abuse she suffered from her mother on them.
