Have you seen the report last saturday on " Imbestigador" hosted by Mike Enriquez? another case for child abuse. My heart sank when I saw the child with bruises, scratches and wounds all over his body, the boy even can't speak I can feel he is thankful and very much welcome the help from authority. Im just glad there were still angels in disguise of a neighbor who is caring and willing to help. The uncaring mother whatever the reason behind do not have the right to do it to human particulary to her child. where does her heart goes? her older daughter may have witnessed what her mother is doing and practiced the same to his siblings wherein she was also hurting her brother and even tied his feet and covered the boy's body with something. It's hard to believe but there are existing mother's who does not have the right to be called mother.

I bit the mother was so deep in playing "Tong-Its" (was that the right spelling?)and all forget about the Word of God saying "love your neighbor as you love yourself." Surely it was the "angel in disguise of a neighbor" who understood about "loving your neighbor as you love yourself." This may to another question: Does Filipino people really understood what it means by "diversion" at they apply it to game of chance?

she is a gambler and will exchange everything just to satisfy her pleasure even child hurting action.

Oh yes, I watched it. I was really teary eyed watching the ordeal of the kid. You forgot to mention, the mother ties his kid just to play tong-its. How could a mother do that to her child. She doesn't deserve to be called a mother when she doesn't know how to take care of her kids. What she did to her kid is a clear child abuse, and she should be punished. Let's just hope that her older daughter who witnessed everything does not adopt to her future kids what she witnessed of her mother's doing.

I think her older daughter started to practice what she saw from her mother. That girl admitted she was the one who tied the boys feet when mother was out.. the girl should be observed too.

i feel so sad and angry whenever i read this kind of news... children are gift from God and they do not deserved to be abused... they are still innocent and don't know anything... yes, i agree with you that some parents are just not fit to be called a mother... take care and have a nice day...

I've seen that story I was teary eyed when I saw the little boy. I feel for him. He must b given a good care by the DSWD and not let the boy return to his family. The parents must be jailed most specially the mother. I want her to suffer what she did to her child. She does not deserve to be called mother since she is not a real mother to her child.

I am so disgusted with people today do they not see children are angels of God how can a person cause such harm to a child especially their own flesh and blood. My kids pushed my buttons, sure I spank them but never left a bruise. There is just to much of this going on today I wish I knew how to stop it and people really need to intervene when they see thois happen turn the parent in even if it is a relative or a best friend.

I think there were just people who are having fun hurting someone else and seeing other bleed even if those people are discended from their own blood. Its nasty to say, but the mother must be punished.

many child abuse cases are reported from asia and africa specially . law in many countries do no permit under sixteen to work . but in poor nations like bangladesh , philliphines etc and africa many children below sixteen do not go to school , they work as labour . the country laws are also helpless , some of these children are from poor families , some do not know how to read write , they do not have recieved aducation . it is okay for child to work , if he is not educated, but no phycical harm should be done or overbudren him.

Yeah, I watched that segment and it made me very sad. I am a mother too, that's why I have so much sympathy on the child. It broke my heart. The mother deserves to stay in jail!
