KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 14 — The mother of a five-year old girl only found out that her daughter had been disciplined in kindergarten after she meted a similar punishment on her two-year-old brother in a role-play at home.
The Star reported that Teng Aai Hong, 36, said her five-year-old daughter was tied up and gagged by her headmistress for being too noisy. She had caught her daughter gagging and tying up her two-year-old brother with a napkin at home on Nov 4.
“I scolded her and asked her why she was doing that. She told me that was what her teacher did to her when she was being naughty,” Teng was reported as saying.
She added that due to the headmistresses’ actions, her son could have suffocated had she not intervened.
Teng has since removed her daughter from the kindergarten and lodged a police report on the matter.
When contacted by The Star, a police spokesperson said they are investigating the case.
