Tonto Dikeh has advised women against marrying men with kids if they are unable to cope with being stepmothers.
The Nollywood actress made this known while reacting to the news of a teenage housewife who inserted a hot iron rod into the private parts of her 5-year-old stepdaughter for bedwetting.
The mother of one recounted her experience with her step-mother who she described as a ‘mother all in one, which birthed her desire to always want to be step-mom to other kids.
According to Tonto, there is absolutely no justification whatsoever for hating and maltreating another woman’s child.
The 36-year-old wrote: “Dear WOMEN,
If you can not handle being a step-mom to your/A man’s kids, then please DO NOT MARRY HIM!!!! I REPEAT DO NOT MARRY HIM.. LEAVE HIM ALONE TO FIND PEACE WITH HIS CHILDREN IN THE HANDS OF A GOOD WOMAN…
“Drawing from personal experience growing up with MY stepmom, our relationship was nothing short of amazing, she was my sister, best friend and mother all in one, and THIS MADE ME ALWAYS WANT TO BE A STEPMOM.. Because I want another little Girl and Boy to experience Love in this special form..
“I wonder why some stepmom can’t be like her, PERSONALLY, I feel being a step-mom is a PRIVILEGE TO RAISE ANOTHER WOMANS CHILDLIKE YOURS…THATS ANOTHER LEVEL OF GRACE AND BLESSINGS HEAVEN IS GOING RELEASE ON YOU..
“There’s no justification for maltreating another person’s child!!! There is no justification for hating another woman’s child…
“Women like this should be released to other WOMEN LIKE ME to deal with… She needs to be dealt with heavily …”
