Good day everyone! So the video of the young man who was abused and starved in boarding house has been trending and I do hope that his parents do all they can to help him recover from the trauma. Truth be told I am not a fan of boarding house, but I am not totally against it either…this is because sometimes parents don’t have other options and a good boarding facility is not without its benefits. I would rather a child is in a good boarding house than totally unsupervised at home. However, I would rather children stay home till […]
