‘Video teen, parents need therapy’

By Donstan Bonn

Parents Need TherapyDiana Mahabir-Wyatt believes the parents of the 14-year-old girl who posted the obscene and racist video on Facebook, in which the life of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar was threatened, should be called to account.

Speaking in her capacity as chairperson of the T&T Coalition Against Domestic and Gender-Based Violence, Mahabir-Wyatt said, “She’s a teenager, a young woman, and someone brought her up with certain values and standards. Isn’t it time that her parents be brought to account?

“She felt free to express, and she did express, and said she did it for fun. My question is why she thought it was funny? When I saw the words used I felt sad, and the Prime Minister is right—she needs to be spoken to.”
