A video making its way around social media has sparked serious concern by viewers.
While the back story is a little hazy, the clip shows a woman recording her husband disciplining their four children.
The video opens with the mother stating the girls had “filthy mouths,” then the girls take turns receiving several lashes with a belt from their father.
The girls writhed in pain as he struck them multiple times. If they showed the least bit of resistance, their dad put them on the bed and proceeded with the punishment.
Even though many have taken their fair share of whippings as children, some say the couple went too far. Not only were the girls publicly humiliated by the recording, many are calling his actions “too ruthless.”
“This is terrible,” read one comment, “the world doesn’t need to see this.”
What do you think? Were the parents just trying to get some attention at the expense of their daughters?
