Mercy Johnson Should've Reacted The 1st Day Purity Told Her About Teacher Bullying Her In School

Popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson recently narrates how her first daughter, Purity, has been constantly bullied by one of her school teachers just because the teacher dislikes her (Mercy Johnson) so much. According to the actress, the accused teacher keeps telling the child to her face that she hates her mother, emphasising that all rich children are always disrespectful.

Mercy Johnson added how the teacher had to punish only her daughter after she was shoved by her classmates and she reacted to it. The actress went to meet the teacher after she came to pick her daughter and saw her crying just because the bullying teacher had beaten her for no reason.

However, I think the only thing Mercy Johnson did wrong was not reacting the first day her daughter, Purity told her about the teacher that is always bullying her in school.

I know when bullying happens at the hands of an authority figure, such as a teacher, sometimes parents remain silent in the hopes that things will be alright which is wrong. That is not how matters should work when bullies are involved, especially when those bullies are in positions of power because the student may question whether they did something to "cause" the teacher to target them inappropriately. Just like in Mercy Johnson's case, Purity is bullied just because one of her teachers hates her mother and that may result in the little girl questioning why the teacher hates her mother.

Ultimately, the teacher is responsible for her actions, and if it is true that she is bullying the young girl, she needs to be held accountable. Parents should know that silence in such cases only enables bullying.
