Dad Divides the Internet With ‘Disgusting’ Punishment for Misbehaving Child Marija Ivanova Published in Jan 2021 / Updated in Feb 2021 Many people will say that parenthood is the easiest thing in the world to have an opinion about, and yet the hardest thing to do. Being a parent is everything but easy. Parents carry the burden of responsibility to raise the next generation. And living in a digital era, in which the sources to learn about raising kids is limitless, is not that helpful as we might think sometimes. There are dozens of useful methods that parents could use to deal with their children. Still, some of them seem to cross the red line and take all things too far. The Perks Of Parenthood Parenthood is something that will change your life forever. Although having a child means experiencing love on a way different level than before, it is also one of the most challenging things in life. But it’s not always rainbows and unicorns. With a little help from your insecurities, the pressure to be a perfect parent can overcome the road of your good intentions. And this is where all things get messy. There’s No Such Thing As ‘Perfect Kids’ Kids will be kids. They are loud. There could be days when they would play all day and be the perfect children one could wish for. Other days, they could yell and sing for hours without any break. And your patience often could be tempted. Whenever you feel the urge to put to question your parenting skills, try to understand that children too have their good and bad days. Testing The Limits Experiencing a couple of bad days doesn’t give you the allowance to raise a hand on them. There are thousands of various disciplining methods for children. Even though many of them could be useful, there are plenty that may be considered extreme. Even cruel at some points. The Cruel Things That Surround Us Right or wrong? pic.twitter.com/VHg7qAszKn— lando (@makingmyown_) July 27, 2020This week, someone on Twitter has shared a video of a dad trying to discipline his child. And it went viral straight ahead. People started taking sides, whether the father crossed the line or not. Taking Sides That is far too much. Way way too much. Kids are learning and growing still. They’re not full adults who understand everything. This kind of hitting is abuse— Grateful Heathen 🍂🦃 (@yourfavheathen) July 27, 2020 Many people were not convinced that children could learn their lesson if their parents raised a hand on them. This is gross and anyone condoning it is disgusting as well. If you have to hit your kids to make them listen, you’re the problem.— Zach Hayes (@zachhayesyt) July 27, 2020Parents need to help their kids grow into healthy and confident young people, not torture them. Variety Speaks https://twitter.com/808BrandonNator/status/1287985728434012160 Some other people thought that it was the lesser of two evils that needed to be done. All the people that are saying this is abuse probably disrespected their parents and lack discipline. I see nothing wrong here. Compared to how I was whooped, this is light work.— Kendra (@kendrakeepclass) July 28, 2020Discipline is key. But is it really? What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger There were even people that encouraged this dad by saying how beating made them who they are today. That’s what my parents did to me and I made two Olympic teams and finals. 🤷🏽♂️— J. Carter (@MrJamesCarter) July 28, 2020And of course – some thought that public humiliation should be a part of the punishment. Got my ass whooped as a kid… plus those whoopings in public not only embarrass you, it gets your act together 👀— Jamel Herring (@JamelHerring) July 28, 2020To Each Their Own There is no doubt that parents have their ways to raise children. But sometimes, there isn’t a single thing in the world that could justify the things we could see in the video. Spanking and yelling could never solve things in the long run. In the end, the sore parts of the body will heal. But the words that you’ve said in anger can never be taken back. And unfortunately, they are the ones that usually stay stuck deep in the thoughts of your child. Feel free to draw your conclusions, and don’t forget that even parenting is a lesson that can be learned. But only if you are willing to learn it.
