Share on Facebook

Being a parent has its fair share of difficult moments.

Although one video shared by a dad of him punishing his child has left the internet divided, as some think he’s gone a little too far…

The love between you and your child is something unlike any other feeling on earth… It’s a pretty magical thing.

Being a parent is basically the hardest job on earth – and the pressure to be a perfect parent can make life even more stressful.

There are some aspects of parenthood are just eternally frustrating. Hey, no one said being a mom was always going to be great fun, right?

There are many things that make parenthood irritating…

But there’s one thing pretty much every mom out there can relate to, which is that feeling that you’re constantly fighting a losing battle against your kids’ annoying habits.

And at some point during our kids’ lives, they will make sure to make our lives as difficult as possible.

And most importantly, it’s all about putting your foot down and not giving in.

And whilst some may be considered extreme and unnecessary, many of these methods prove to be very useful.

And it has truly divided the internet.

And it showed a father disciplining his son in a rather harsh way.

Others feel just as strongly to the contrary.

While others think this will only reinforce bad habits later in life.

But, of course, there was no shortage of opinions!

“Disgusting and extremely irresponsible to post a video of a child being abused and asking if people think it’s ok. Bullying a child is never acceptable, shame on you for even asking.”

“And why the video? What exactly does posting the video do??? Am I the only one tired of people posting things for attention? Wrong-way to go about it!”

“Perfect example of parenting! When you see the long lasting effects of bullying on children….the first and best resource to stop it, is with the parents! Quit trying to be your kids best friend and hold them accountable for this and other unacceptable behavior! Bravo Dad!!”

“That’s not bullying. That’s good parenting. Teaching him that actions have consequences. Anybody that disagrees, is probably afraid to discipline their child.”

Perhaps the public nature is a part of the punishment?

Claiming that it worked for them.

And the distance he has to run with his backpack on in the rain, some found a bit excessive.

That his 10-year-old son had been kicked off the school bus due to him bullying other kids.

Making him run to school every morning, while he follows in the car behind him.

“Yesterday he was apparently a little rude for Michelle in the morning, so even though it’s raining this morning he still gets to run”, Thornhill said.

“He hasn’t got in trouble at school this week, whereas last week he was absolutely out of his mind”, he says. “This right here is called parenting.”
