We are sorry for the beating and the scolding that the child is getting. But, we also observe a bit of over-reaction and ‘acting’ from the kid. She seems to be pretending to have a headache just to avoid the scolding. Also, she is missing simple numbers because she is not focused on studies. This is bound to create frustration in a concerned mother, and may lead to harsh treatment. Which then leads to the child’s defenses such as headache, etc.
The interesting thing is that people in different states of mind will view this situation differently. Most likely, males will take the side of the kid, and females (esp. mothers) will take the side of the mother.
The scene when the girl seems to join her hands and almost plead, is going to seem heart-rending to some people (e.g. Virat Kohli). But, it will seem like a ploy (to avoid getting scolded) to mothers and others who know that kids can be over-smart sometimes.
However, the final responsibility rests with the parents only. In India context, such a treatment may not be illegal or even immoral. But, it is going to be ineffective for sure.
So, the mother needs to understand her daughter’s psyche and tackle her accordingly. Else, the mother will keep on being harsh, and the daughter will keep on evolving her defense mechanisms!
