Some kids enjoy doing this and it sometimes become a habit for a child, but they better know the exact time to have the thumb in their mouth. The last thing you would wish for is for a Nigerian parent especially moms to catch you thumb sucking, they actually have the tendency to beat you into the next year or year after until you stop it completely.

3. Careless

For instance, your parent send you to buy something from a shop nearby, then the you forgets to take your change, or loses the money or buys something else or doesn’t even remember what you were sent to buy. I am very sure, you know exactly what would come after that right? Frog jump may be added to your punishment after beaten.

It doesn't matter where you stole it from, is called stealing as long as your parents didn’t put them in your bag when you were going to school in the morning. So, when they see other people’s items in your bag, they could beat you until you remember the date you were born.

6. Eating A Neighbour’s Food

This forever ranks highest when it comes to punishment. Eating in your neighbour’s food whether your parents were present or not is an offense. Some of them will pretend that they are OK with it but inside you, you knew what awaits you inside the room. They could beat you till you vomit all the food.

7. Breaking Plates

Our parents wants to raise us in a respectful manner and you would be totally contradicting their dreams of making that happen when you turn out to be a child that sees an elder and doesn’t greet. This is common among Yoruba people that always kneeling down while greeting an elder, When your mom reminds you before you have to greet an elderly person, then you know you are surely going to get whooped when you get inside, that is if you don’t get it immediately in front of the person.

All this can be funny now that most of us has passed that stage but going back to old memories, you do never want that moment to occur again.

What is the most silly things your parents even beat you for? Share yours
