Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Grandma Beats Boy for Skipping School

Post by prahocalypse now » Fri Dec 29, 2017 3:11 pm

The 11-year-old boy, Kong Sovanarath, a year 7 student at Sothearos High School, skipped school yesterday afternoon. This made his 60-year-old grandmother angry, and she gave him a sound thrashing.

She was taken to the office of the Child Protection Unit and reeducated.

One day when he gets older the kid will thank her for it, and the day the kid becomes a lawyer, a policeman or a judge,,, she will regret the kid even went to school.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I joke about a lot of things and don’t take too many things seriously but, an adult beating a child black and blue is not something to joke about.

Please step into Cambodian shoes for a minute. To western eyes this is atrocious and criminal, but it is normal practice for grandma to use a cane to discipline family. I was caned at school and that was 45 years ago in the uk. It was normal then. My mother had a cane, but it ws rarely used, maybe 2 times in my life. it has taken us 45 years to get to the point where it is illegal but you can still slap your child, so even with our head start we are not perfect. You cannot change cultures overnight, much as you might want to. You have to bring change through education

There is a difference between a cane over the buttocks or knuckles once or twice and what this kid was subjected to.

I would say, even 45 years ago, if you beat a child as bad as the picture shows you would not get away with it.

But for the Khmer culture of deferential respect to elders, he should have grabbed whatever she was whipping him with and thrashed her to fuck with it.
