There is a big difference between punishment and child abuse. Parents can and should discipline their children. Parents should teach their children about the rules, expectations, values, and morals. Kids need to be given consistent discipline to be taught the right from wrong and what they can and cannot do.
The goal of discipline is to create a stable, orderly, predictable, and fun world for them to enjoy and grow healthily. Positive discipline helps them to learn and change their behavior. However, some parents may go beyond the border, changing discipline to abuse. Child abuse can result when discipline or attempts to control a child turns excessive and injures the child.
Abused By Her Preschool Teacher
A heartbroken mother took to Facebook to share how her 3-year-old daughter was abused by her teacher. The kindergarten teacher abused the toddler so much that her ear was severely bruised.
When the father picked up the 3-year-old child from her preschool, he sensed that something is not right with the girl’s mood. So he parked the car and turned around, only to see something unusual and unexpected on her ear.
When they reached home, my hubby asked me to check what had happened to her ear and to my horror, her ear was badly bruised to such an extent that it was swelling badly. My heart bled and when I asked my daughter about what had happened, she lost control and just broke down in tears and cried.
No Explanation From the School
Although Claudia immediately called the school and demanded for an explanation, none of the teachers came up with an explanation.
The form teacher said that it was a mystery.
The parents sent their daughter for an examination and the doctor was shocked to see the injury.
He diagnosed it as a form of traumatic bruising that was caused by the exertion of great intentional force, and not a result of insect bites or drug allergies.
The mother lodged a police report. The child was only able to give her statement after calming down. The 3-year-old revealed the exact teacher who pinched and twisted her ear. Claudia also sent her daughter to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital for another diagnosis. Upon further check-up, the hospital classified it as “non-accidental injury” and most probably inflicted by the preschool teacher.
Claudia immediately went back to the preschool for assistance, but she was surprised to hear the response of the supervisor.
He (supervisor) fully believes and trusts that none of his teachers would abuse a child to such an extent.
Impacted the Preschool Student
The incident left a big impact on her daughter. Every night, the girl would suddenly wake up from her nightmares, crying “I’m scared, I’m sorry, please, stop, pain!” while shouting the teacher’s name.
Back home, when I was reading story books to her, she would suddenly say that her teacher is ‘the evil wolf’ in the story of the Three Little Pigs and that she was the ‘wicked queen’ in Snow White, or that her soft toys would help protect her from her evil teacher. Even when she heard minor renovation noise from my neighbour’s flat, she would say that it was the sound of her teacher coming to pull her ear once again and she would break into tears!
However, the mother is exasperated as it looks like the investigation is processing slowly. The preschool is shunning away all the responsibilities. She was also denied access to all the CCTV footages.
Dear all,I appreciate it if you could take some time to read this post. It’s a long post as I’m seeking advice.I’m…
Claudia is closed to breaking down as she’s coping with her husband’s acute stroke and seeking justice for her daughter. Upon talking to the preschool, they said that they already conducted their own investigation based on the CCTV footages and denied that the 3-year-old girl suffered from bruises on their premises.
Update: The school mention about the bruise below my Daughter cheek was a fading bruise that was a week ago. That’s…

Supportive Husband Shares Pregnant Wife’s Struggle with Rare Illness
On their wedding day, Limuel Orense De Silva and Mary Grace Manalo De Silva promised to love each other through sickness and health. Little did they know that this vow will be challenged very soon in their marriage.
September 16, 2017 was one of the happiest days in their lives. It was the day they got married.
Four months later, this vow was challenged when Grace was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome, a rare condition that affects only 1 in 100k people.
What’s worse, she was 3 months pregnant at the time!
Due to the condition, Grace’s entire body was paralyzed; she could only move her head, but barely so. She couldn’t fully close her eyes and these were drying out. She lost her ability to swallow and she could barely breathe.
The next 3 months were a struggle to this couple as Grace was in ICU. They also lost their baby, worsening the challenge they were facing. But through it all, Limuel stuck with Grace and loved her with all his heart.
They also kept their faith in God.
When Grace was finally out of the hospital, Limuel was there to help her get back in shape and walk again. Therapy started immediately but the going was tough for Grace who had to endure the pain.
She was out of the hospital but still experiencing difficulties; she still could not walk and her legs have become too thin, unable to support her body.
Physical therapy sessions are also expensive; thus, Limuel did his best to create DIY things she can use for the home sessions. At times, he did the therapy by himself.
Soon enough, Grace was able to stand up on her own and take a few steps with the aid of a walker. She still continues with therapy but little by little her health improved and her body became stronger.
Amazingly, 5 months after diagnosis, Grace was able to walk again! Isn’t that amazing? While she still needs a cane for support from time to time, she can already manage on her own.
Considering what they had been through the past months, it was quite incredible that she is able to do this so soon…
Family Seeks Justice for Young Mom Who Became Bedridden after C-Section
It was supposed to be one of the happiest days of their lives but one family experienced nightmare with what they believed was a botched caesarian section on new mom Camille Santos Carlos.
Zenaida Santos, Camille’s mother, posted an appeal on Facebook for justice because her daughter has been confined at the hospital for 10 months now but her condition worsens each passing day.
According to Nanay Zenaida, Camille had a healthy pregnancy and showed no signs of the impending nightmare they were going to experience on the day the baby was born. Her pregnancy photos were just like that of most moms – happy and excited.
She was still smiling in the photo taken on the day she was admitted at the hospital. Nothing prepared the family for what happened next.
Nanay Zenaida narrated that last August 7, 2017, Camille was admitted at a public hospital in Tarlac. But after the C-section, Camille was never the same again.
She appeared to have amnesia at the time but she didn’t get her memory back nor had the chance to tell her family if it was back because she would eventually lose her sight, ability to speak, and even her motor skills. She could not move on her own.
For 10 months now she’s in a vegetative state. Nanay Zenaida claimed that the doctors had given up on her daughter; they had all ‘signed out’ on Camille, she added.
Taking pity on her daughter, Nanay Zenaida posted an appeal for help on Facebook because they tried filing charges against the doctors but she claimed that ‘nothing’ has happened to the case.
She hopes that justice can be served for her daughter, especially because the baby had passed away just 2 days after birth.
Many people urged her to take the matter to Raffy Tulfo for faster action. We hope they find help soon.
Woman Loses Nearly 30kg in Just 5 Months, Shares Secret to Inspire Others
At 85 kg, Angel Raighn Flores knew she was overweight; well, actually, she’s already obese at this weight but like many others, she encountered a lot of problems in losing weight.
For years, she’s been yoyo-dieting, with no effect. But she recently dropped to 56 kg in just 5 months! That’s a whopping 29-kg drop that made a lot of netizens amazed over the transformation. What’s her secret? How did she lose weight?
In a post that has gone viral on Facebook, Angel shared photos of her incredible transformation as an inspiration to others that such transformations can really be done in just a matter of months, if you are determined to do it.
According to Angel, she has gone through a number of dieting fads and weight loss attempts in the past, to no avail. Her family and friends had always been supportive, even helping her buy stuff for her exercise needs when she feels the need to try something new but those yoga mats, dumbbells and other stuff eventually got forgotten because she usually doesn’t last more than just a week into the regimen.
She knows that her weight is a huge problem, not just because people are rather blunt in telling her that her excess weight can lead to death but also because she finds it difficult to find costumes for school activities.
She has also refused to go to parties because the older ones often point out her weight to her.
One day, though, she saw the incredible weight loss journey of Abigail Galang Rebong, she recalled. This transformation pushed her to finally try and really lose weight.
She invited her friend to hit the gym; they did so for a month but like many of her previous attempts, she stopped going to the gym. However, she did not stop dieting. She went on a strict “no rice, no meat” diet; she also avoided eating fried foods.
Amazingly, she was able to stick to her diet regimen this time. After 5 months, she was able to lose all those excess weights, hitting her ideal weight! Truly incredible, right?
