Jamaica: ‘Never Give Up On Love’ – Education Ministry Official Warns Against Child-Beating

In an emotional address that was rich with regret and recovery, acting Chief Education Officer Dr Kasan Troupe has called for parents to exercise restraint in disciplining their children because of the risk of damage to their personhood.

Drawing on her roots as an inner-city girl who grew up in Greenwich Town, southwest St Andrew, she admitted to struggling with not reprising her experience from an abusive home.

“I grew up in a single-parent home, and my mother was very abusive. I got some good licks, but that was what she knew.

“Even now as a mother, I struggle to not exercise and not replicate what I experienced as a child. My husband helps me with that,” Troupe said while addressing congregants at Kencot Christian Fellowship church in Kingston on Sunday.
