  • While that dance move is inappropriate and I wouldn't want my dau doing it, that father went way overboard w/ his "discipline". He should be charged with child abuse. That was painful to watch :(

  • Yes he should be charged that was way too much in my opinion.

  • "a bit too much" are you kidding?! Of course that is abuse! I don't care what those girls do not "discipline" like that. How can you even question whether that's abuse or not after watching that....especially the girls' reaction? I can tell you from experience that getting whipped like that is extremely painful and totally unnecessary. All it does it terrify the hell out of you and traumatize you.

  • I don't care what they were doing, that was abuse. That was absolutely horrible to watch, I wanted to throw up. And then to read the comments, all those people who think what he did was right. Absolutely disgusting.

  • At least in our state, if you use something other than your hand to smack your child, it is considered "abuse." But yeah, that's definitely abuse.

    And what the heck is "twerking?"

  • I spank my kids but that on the video wasn't spanking, that was abusive beating. Kids that age shouldn't be spanked anyway.

  • It wasn't just for twerking though. They were on punishment already for sneaking out of the house & other things, then he walked in of that mess. Was it to far? Absolutely but I can bet you their asses won't be twerking again. Plus I have a issue with him telling them to bend over to recieve the whooping and they run like buttholes which probably pissed him off more. I know I ran once from my dad, I got tore up. I was no worse for wear and learned a valuable lesson.

    ^^^ I know- I had to look it up too. It's basically a sexual dance where you jiggle your butt- there's some You Tube videos but don't watch them with the kids near by.
