A Nigerian woman, Agatha Benson, took to Facebook to celebrate her daughter Major Tokunbo Benson, who recently graduated from US Army Command and General Staff College on Thursday, August 16, 2018 (yesterday) and is set to become a Lt. Colonel.
Proud of her daughter, the Nigerian woman recounted how she dealt with her daughter now an army official for disrespecting her teacher years ago in Alabama, USA. Mrs. Agatha also noted that all her children, especially the ones in the army are now much more disciplined than her. She wrote on Facebook;
Major Tokunbo Benson, who graduated from US Army Command and General Staff College August 16, 2018. She and classmates in elementary school disrespected their teacher in Birmingham, Alabama USA. Parents were called in by the school Principal.
Corporal punishment is allowed in Alabama State.
Before parents arrived, I was there before them. I went to Major Tokunbo Benson’s Principal. I said to her Principal. Can I have the school paddle?. He handed the paddle over to me.
I spanked her with the paddle before the students, Principal, Assistant Principal, and her Teacher. I said to her how much Teachers are paid to be disrespected.
Since then I didn’t go to school for use of Corporal Punishment. My rule of thumb was if my children disrespect their elders, Teachers, authority, and public, I’ll be at the school or anywhere to disgrace them in presence of everybody. I never cover up my children misbehaviors.
Today, Major Tokunbo Benson is commanding soldiers under her. She was once a Company Commander in Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. She’s more discipline than me who taught her discipline. Honestly, my children are more discipline than me mostly the girls in the Army.
Major Tokunbo Benson’s father is a retired soldier, and now his two daughters have decided to tow the military path.
