  1. MANY A TIME I REALLY WONDER ABOUT THE ACTS OF WOMEN AND MOTHERS IN THEIR ATTEMPTS AT METING OUT DISCIPLINE.

    WHEN THE MINORS PRIVATE PART IS SET ON FIRE,WHAT HAPPENS TO HER AND THE OTHER PARTS OF THE BODY?

    WOMEN,IT LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE NOT ENDOWED ADEQUATELY TO HANDLE DISCIPLINE AT HOME.

    PLEASE,BE CAREFUL HOW YOU GO ABOUT INFLICTING MORTAL INJURIES TO CHILDREN IN THE HOPE OF ATTAINING OBEDIENCE FROM YOUR CHILDREN.

    DO NOT KILL THEM.BIKO
