- With the national lockdown, many parents are stuck at home with their children
- One man, @Khuze_Elikhulu, shared a photo online showing it's not always fun and games having your child at home
- The image shows several Rand notes cut up into tiny pieces
The country is under a 21-day lockdown and while movements are restricted, the government's decision allows families to spend more time together.
However, a lot of parents are already starting to miss sending their children to school. One man, who was simply identified as @Khuze_Elikhulu, posted a photo online showing the "joy of parenting".
His image shows several notes of money, including a R50, R200 and R20 note, cut into tiny pieces. @Khuze_Elikhulu revealed it was the doing of a child who got his or her hands on scissors.
His post was captioned:
"When I constantly tell y'all 'Don't have kids!' you think I'm just joking with you. You think I'm trying to deprive y'all of the joy of parenting. Does this look like the joy of parenting to you?"
Take a look at the post below:
South Africans felt @Khuze_Elikhulu;s pain and some even wrote about their own experiences with kids at home.
Social media user, @PearlPillay, commented:
"He's part of the Lesufi Gang. He's trying to show you what you're doing when you buy alcohol."
Zipho Mpangazitha, who goes by the Twitter handle @ziphogodess, added:
"My colleague's son decided to 'warm' her cellphone on the microwave."
Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported on another incident where kids gave parents a tough time. A video surfaced online showing two toddlers causing chaos in the kitchen.
The twins were filmed climbing up the fridge and the clip quickly went viral as South Africans were left in stitches.
