Halle Berry daughter is afraid of her father

There seems to be a new twist in the bitter custody dispute between Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, over their daughter Nahla. Aubry has been accused of child neglect and endangerment after a nanny claimed he angrily pushed her in an argument while she was carrying Nahla — Aubry has firmly denied these claims. Berry has since been doing everything she can to restrict him from seeing their daughter and she may now have the evidence she needs. The L.A. Department of Children and Family Services have reportedly been conducting interviews with family members, including Nahla, and according to gossip site TMZ, the three-year-old has admitted to being scared of her father because of several incidents where he yelled at her. Aubry is already taking anger management classes and is currently only allowed to see Nahla in the presence of a monitor, as ordered by the Dependency Court. He may also be ordered to do more counseling, however, hearings are still ongoing.

    How can you trust what a 3 year old says? A LOT of fathers might snap at their kids for doing stupid things but that doesn’t make them bad parents. He might have just told her sternly…like all parents do and should…and the kid perceived it as yelling. Cut the guy some slack!

    Convenient timing…didn’t she just come in front of a judge asking for permission to move to France with her daughter as Nahla’s father is denying it?

    Very sad! I do not believe Aubry is as bad as Berry is trying to make him seem! If you took children away from all parents who “yell” at their kids, nobody would have kids living with them anymore … Seriously! Way too convenient for Berry to alienate her daughter’s father! Remember, she has issues with violent men that one.

    The court should Nahla ask how often mummy Halle yells at her and if she’s scared of her.

    This is stupid! Kids need discipline and yeah parents yell at their kids. I hate all this anti-spanking laws and crap. Now if she gets taken away from her dad she’ll just grow up all spoiled. If you’re too lenient-issues arise.

    Have any of you even considered that maybe he really is a bad father? You’re all hating on Halle Berry but just like you don’t know that what she’s saying is true…you also don’t know that it’s a lie. I’m sure she has reason to be so against him being around her kid.

    Obviously he needs anger management, you’re trying to take his kid away FFS!

    Are you fricken kidding me? The only thing that matters is how the child perceives the parent! There is a difference between getting mad cause she touched something she shouldn’t, and getting mad enough so your child is scared of you. Even if you believe that there is no difference, a good parent should be stern yet the child should always know they are loved. If she is scared of him, he’s not doing his most important job right.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for spanking and discipline, but children need to know that parents do it because they love them, not because they get some sick twisted pleasure. It’s a punishment, hug system.

    @MrsBuchholz: You say you’re all for spanking and discipline. Are you telling me if you spank a 3 year old and then ask them the next day what they think of you theyre not going to havve something negative to say about it?

    All I’m saying is you can’t trust what the kid says. They don’t understand the context of what parents say/do.

    Someone – Are you kidding me too? Of course they are going to say something negative. They’ll say: they don’t like to be spanked. I did as a child but that Quickly fades into obsterity, when you know your Mom and Dad are disciplining you, because you Know they are giving of themselves out of love, to show you they Don’t like you doing something Wrong. If I would have had a child(ren), I’d hate spanking my Children, but I would occasionally but not very much. I’ve come to realize with this anti-spanking craze, that there are really some other things you Can do, to show them that what they doing is wrong!

    Hey “Someone”.. I remember being college watching videos of girls between 2-5 say their father abused them when I was taking Child & Youth Worker, FU! But you know what, according to you, I’m glad I never went down that road, because had I been a Worker today and read your post, I would have judged myself and said ****! I’ve been believing that these kids have been getting abused when their parent never laid a hand on them! BS! BF-ingS! This is why WOMEN never believe their children and always take a mans word against their child, because a man can never do any wrong! I’m a guy, I’m 29 and I’m a teacher, the next time a child comes up to me and says someone yelled or touched them inappropriately, I will deny them the right to feel secure and thell them they are just making it up. Because F—! That’s exactly what I should do according to you! you gone done pissed me off, if you have children, I hope you go down this road, or better yet, someone you know. Let’s see whose side you’ll be on then. Whatever you do, tell your friend or family member not to believe the child. Because children at any age can’t tell the difference between something that scares them and something that makes them happy.

    @ Someone – GOOD RIDDANCE!

    BTW..the reason I never became a CYW is because I always believed in my heart men like the one above could NEVER change. Such a fact was always proven during my time in studies. Guys say they want to change, they claim they are calm and collected, but they show such change to appear that way before society only so they can get back to what pleasures them or what makes them tick. And when they get back into the flow of things, guess what, their aggression and their way of making people not say a word about their behaviour begins with threats towards their victims. Perhaps Halle’s timing couldn’t have been more convenient, but ask yourself this, if you were in her shoes, would you do everything to protect your child or would you give the bastard who scares her every chance to burn his image in her mind? I rest my case..
