Discipline or Abuse?

This woman has clearly lost all control.  This is child abuse NOT discipline, this child needs to be taken away from this family ASAP.  The worst part is, she ADOPTED this child...stood before a judge and SWORE to give him a warm, loving home.

Could that possibly be a picture of JESUS  hanging on the wall behind them?

I believe this is the lady who will be on Dr Phil today. I plan on watching it. I want to see what she says, what Phil says and whether it will make any difference.

(And yes, Jesus is on her wall AND in her house. She will be accountable to Him for her actions! I hope that she's accountable to man in the meantime!)

I fear that this happens more than we will ever know..I used to know a couple that adopted two little boys. I had to stop going over there because of the difference that they showed to one and not the other. Never really abuse that I saw but it broke my heart to see how the one older boy was left out. We have to know that Jesus is watching... That woman will have a lot to answer to when she stands before the throne.

OMG! I watched this today till I got sick to my stomach. I am still crying. That is the most horrendous witch I have ever seen for a Mother. She isn't even human. I do hope she loses all her children. She deserves nothing but a life in hell.

My husband and I, both Air Force veterans with some POW evasion and survival training, watched that show together. We immediately looked at each other and simultaneously, said "that's torture!" Very similar to the mental torture endured by prisoners of war!

Oh..my...dear..God this made me SO mad. I am still mad! I hope that they took this child away from her. I had to get up and walk away before I could even write a comment...

This makes me sick to my stomach. I hope CPS has gotten involved. Lord, please watch over this child and protect him from the ones who are supposed to take care and love him.

This is aweful Robin. I am concerned that this happens more than we know. I agree with you wholeheartedly on this. It is so sad. Kathi

I just could not watch it after she put that poor child in a cold shower. Not that kind of parenting is acceptable, but it seemed completely out of proportion to what happened in school. I have two children on the Autism spectrum and we struggle daily with behavioral issues,some extremely severe. We have have worked very hard with many professionals on how to handle undesireable behaviors. We would never handle even the worst behaviors with such punishments. We have found that many times being proactive and positive can be a much better approach.

It makes me very sad to think any child would have to endure such treatment and frankly if I had been the camera person filming that I think I very well might have called called Child Protective Services on the spot!

Just heartbreaking

Wow. How sad! Yes, that really is torture. You can tell that it has been going on for a long time because he didn't even cry when all that hot sauce (and it looked like it was a mouthful) was in his mouth.

I too hope that CPS was waiting in the wings to take that poor little boy away from her. I hope she got jail time for this!
