So sad, 13-Year-Old Girl Committed Suicide After Her Father Publicly Shamed Her On The Internet. When I first seen the video I was shocked and said who does this??
We read headlines about cyberbullying, sexting, and online predators that threaten to put our children’s privacy at risk… but lately many parents have begun to harness the power of social media to put their children front and center: as a form of punishment.
“Shaming is is not a form of discipline, it is a form of emotional abuse and until we understand that, we will continue to do a great injustice to our children.
He and everyone else who pulls this public humiliation ought to be charged with abuse, and if they can't be, the laws need to be revised to fit the changing times. Hope he learned his lesson, what her dad did is a 100% reason why she killed herself.
Only a fool or someone who is ignorant of child-rearing would look at this story and shift all the blame on the kid or conclude that this was just a loving, caring father who is being unfairly maligned for merely trying to discipline his daughter.
"Kids are the only people in the world we’re allowed to hit," Louis C.K. lamented in his 2010 comedy special, Hilarious. "They’re the most vulnerable, and they’re the most destroyed by being hit, but it’s totally okay to hit them."
If you shouldn’t hit a fellow adult, you shouldn’t hit a child. If you shouldn’t shame a friend then don’t shame your children. Simple as that! IMHO
