Abused boy starting to walk again

Abused boy starting to walk again

SINGAPORE - For the parents of the abused boy, the road to recovery has been bumpy for their once agile child and themselves.

During the first month of his recovery, he did not want to mention anything about school or his teachers.

He even refused to hear the word "school". "After the incident, he didn't want to stand. He used to crawl from his bedroom to the kitchen just to have dinner. We had to push him in a stroller when we went out," said his mother.

The three-year-old also started becoming more aggressive and was not as independent as he used to be, said the boy's father.

The boy's mother said he used to play with his own toys quietly in a corner, but sought more attention after the incident. He is beginning to show progress mentally and physically. On Monday, he started to walk again. He is also excited about returning to school and has more energy for play.
