Mother Charged Over Attack On Son

A woman has been charged with one count of Act With Intent to Cause Grievous Harm after she allegedly threw a hot iron at her 9-year old son.

The mother of seven was disappointed with her son for coming home late from school on several occasions and threw the hot iron at her son for this.

The matter was reported to police by the 9-year old boy’s class teacher who noticed bruises on the child’s back whilst in school. The incident occurred in Ba with the suspect already being produced at the Lautoka Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Once again, we wish to remind parents not to resort to such avenues when disciplining their children. It is advisable that parents change their sense of approach towards their young ones when disciplining them.
