Zodwa Wabantu's #bundleofjoy has little to smile about, as he is repeating grade 8 this year.
The social media sphere was filled up by parents who were posting pictures of their little ones as #BackToSchool fever gripped the nation. What we did not see, however, were a number of parents and pupils who are not totally feeling the back to school vibe.
One such parent is the well known Zodwa Wabantu. The mother of one has explained that her son, Vuyo is repeating a year after failing Grade 8.
Although Zodwa' son might be disappointed in the news, her attitude towards Vuyo was of a highly positive tone.
The dance extraordinaire was not about to shame her son for repeating a grade, as she has reportedly urged him do better this year since he's still young.
Speaking to Tshisa LIVE, Zodwa revealed the catalysts that caused a disturbance in Vuyo's academic year.
A new boarding school experience and a new style of teaching were some of the factors that were mentioned.
"I expected him to do well, just like any parent and he failed, I was disappointed. I thought perhaps it had something to do with my busy working mom's life but I realised that there were other things too. "
"I know parents that make their kids feel like sh*t and pretend in front of other people like they're understating parents. But behind closed doors they insult their kids. "
A big shout out to Zodwa for effecting such a positive vibe towards her son. Surely he'll gain strength, as he forges through grade eight this year!
