An entitled 13-year-old girl thought she could live like a single lady and even dress like one. She disregarded her parent’s rules and left home, not to return for three days, when she decided to come back to the comfort of her caregiver’s paycheck. Instead of a warm welcome, the young teen was met with a massive dose of discipline.
According to The Inquisitr, the unnamed child was met in the street by her father and other people, who are presumably various family members, including her mother who filmed the alarming incident. The dad was irate, as most would be, that his little girl did what she wanted, dressed like she was debuting in a sleazy Beyoncé music video. He whipped off his belt and began ruthlessly beating her with it.
The whips were accompanied by hardcore weave pulls, as is typically involved in these brawls. The girl’s tight dress rides up and she flails about, trying to get away from dad’s wrath, who adds insult to injury by saying, “You 13 hoe.”
While there is a general lack of discipline in our country, particularly in inner city ‘hoods, the most credit we can give this dad was that he lives in the home with his family. You can verbally instruct your child and let them know what they did was wrong, but degrading verbal abuse just perpetuates the rebellious behavioral issues in the teen. At the end of the conversation, they should feel bad for their actions, not resent you for words you said out of anger.
Spanking a child with a controlled hand is one thing, but some would say that a belt takes things too far. Her actions are inexcusable, leaving the home for days on end without accountability. Parents should have more control over their children and their whereabouts. Parents need to get to know their children’s acquaintances, so that when disappearing acts like this are pulled, they know who to call and where to look.
The parents in this situation are as much to blame for their daughter’s disrespectful behavior, as she is for her own actions. Discipline like this, heinous name calling to your kid, will only backfire by driving the teen to look for love in all the wrong places. From the looks of things, it appears that’s what she was doing for three days that got her in this fight in the first place.
