Really Though.

I'm at the beauty salon and this lady's child is screaming and crying his little eyes out. It's obvious, he doesn't want to get his haircut. Poor kid. He has to be about 3 years old.

In a stressful situation, such as this, I would do one of the following:

(1.) Calm the child down and let him regroup and get himself together.


(2.) Simply get his haircut another day.

Seriously, those are the only two options I see feasible, but Ooohhhhh No!!! What does the lady do?

She takes the poor kid outside and whoops him - ALL BECAUSE HE'S CRYING! What the hell? Do you honestly think that's going to make him stop? Why would you do that? I think her reaction was utterly ridiculous and showed poor parenting skills. Why would you spank an already crying 3 year old? It makes no sense.

I really hate to see people hit there kids. I think it's one of the worst things ever! Now, in certain cases, I understand you shouldn't spare the rod and spoil the child, but come-on.


  1. This situation is a tough one for me. I think I would have to consider other factors like was he scared, acting out, or tired. I don't know. I wouldn't necessarily spank him.

  2. I know...........I was so upset to hear her spanking the little boy. I was even more disgusted with the other adults that were cosigning with her spanking the kid. Who does that?!?!
