Like John in this film, millions of children in Nigeria are exposed to emotional violence before they turn 18.
National survey data indicate that 1 in 5 boys and 1 in 6 girls suffer emotional violence from their parents, caregivers or adult relatives.
They are ridiculed or put down.
They are told they are unloved or undeserving of love.
Or they are told: ‘I wish you were dead’ / ‘I wish you hadn’t been born’.
This film, funded by UNICEF and produced by MIND, supports the Nigerian Government's Year of Action to End Violence Against Children.
