  1. Ignoring the ignorant comments by Nell.

    What is the Law doing about this? Don’t we have child protection laws in St. Lucia? Where are the authorities in this matter.

    When we treat our children like animals (in some developed countries a person can get arrested for doing this to a dog); and they turn out with the animal-like behavior in adulthood, we ignorantly ask the question: “where did he/she learn this behavior? THEY LEARNT IT FROM US – THE ADULTS.

    This child has just learnt a lesson from her abuser : that this is the way to handle a child’s negative behavior.

    If the authorities do nothing about this then St. Lucia is a failed state.

  3. This is a disgrace I am lost for words for a pair of shoes can someone please get the contact information on this young school girl. Let’s us help her get a few pairs of shoes sneakers flats and sandals my goodness
    That woman have so much anger in her towards her own niece
    What could’ve happened had the mother/ father walked up to see their daughter getting disrespected like this that’s a dam shame
    She should be arrested that’s abuse period

    • This is no disgrace. It is obvious the girl is very disrespectful and has been for a long time, like most of these kids. She took something that did not belong to her. There was a time when the community had a hand in raising the kids. Now everyone turns a blind eye and sympathize with these kids. What happen to having principal, respect and being graceful for what you have and in others. We reward kids for bad behavior and treating others including their property with no respect.
