There are many things that make parenthood irritating...

There's no such thing as a perfect child...

Many are truly lost on what to think.But, of course, there were no shortage of opinions!
Some thought it was way too far.
"Kids are learning and growing still. They’re not full adults who understand everything. This kind of hitting is abuse."
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— Tantric Heathen 💧 (@yourfavheathen) July 27, 2020
Some had a visceral reaction.
@InkedRanjei This is gross and anyone condoning it is disgusting as well. If you have to hit your kids to make them… https://t.co/ABIA44FgEu— Zach Hayes (@Zach Hayes)1595882991.0
While others held a different opinion.
Right. His job is not to be thier friend. Its to prepare them for the real world so they can navigate it without his protection.— Killer of all things (@NewDecadeGaming) July 27, 2020
Others felt a little more strongly.
@InkedRanjei All the people that are saying this is abuse probably disrespected their parents and lack discipline.… https://t.co/NJjzNlqBjF— Kendra (@Kendra)1595897028.0
Some believed it made them who they are today.
My parents are Mexican and if we did not behave or talk back to them best believe that took their chancla or their belts and spanked us. Some children need it when they go over the limits. Teaches them so have respect. All kids need a spanking don’t be hipocrits.— Edgrr Dimplez (@barandafunk) July 28, 2020
James Carter even spoke out.
Claiming that if it's good enough for him...
That’s what my parents did to me and I made two Olympic teams and finals. 🤷🏽♂️— J. Carter (@MrJamesCarter) July 28, 2020
The video makes for pretty stark viewing.
The rough way he handles the kid isn't nice to watch.
smfh. i can’t wait til this tradition dies off— Nalo 🐢 (@kingnalodarling) July 28, 2020
The spanking is repeated several times.
Which is another factor that made viewers wince.
For him to do that in public he must hulk out at home. Id spank my kids like that once we got home— petTHEsweaty (@DomeLydy) July 28, 2020
He also yells at the boy.
And his choice of language is less than SFW.
The problem with this damn world is no parent is allowed to spank their child for the disrespectful behaviors they do in public or even in home ! This is why the world have so many damn disrespectful ass people as teenagers who turn and beat their parents and what happens??— Alicia Nelsen (TiNk) (@AliciaTNk2) January 10, 2021
