- With the national lockdown, many parents are stuck at home with their children
- One man, @Khuze_Elikhulu, shared a photo online showing it is 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 (N979.74), R200 (N3,924.10) and R20 (N392.41) 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."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a 16-year-old boy, Sunday Chibuzor, spoke at length about his experience as a street hustler in Lagos.
The boy said he sells air freshener at a car wash. In the video shared by Splash FM, the boy also said he bought his dad a phone from the money he made from his merchandise.

The teenager also spoke about many things he thinks are wrong with the country. First, he said he agrees with President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerian youths are lazy.
He said many endeavours they engage in are those that only profit them at the detriment of others. The boy did not stop at that, he added that the oppression of the poor by the rich is great.
To buttress that point, Chibuzor spoke about the horrible experience he had with a rich man who he mistakenly stepped on.
