When it comes to punishing your kids, how far is too far? One mom is stirring up controversy after a video of her shaving her teenage daughter’s hair went viral. The reason for the cruel and unusual punishment? Her daughter bullied a girl with cancer.
No parent likes to hear that their child has been a bully, especially when it involves someone with an illness or disability. This mom wanted to teach her daughter a lesson that she would never forget.
She grabbed an electric razor and started shaving the teen’s thick, black hair so that she would know what it’s like to be bald. The girl will now have to face her peers with an embarrassing haircut and maybe even deal with being bullied herself.
Watch as the mom struggles to shave her screaming daughter’s hair.
As shocking as the video is, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen parents use bad haircuts as a form of punishment.
In 2015, the Benjamin Button Special, aka the old man haircut, became a trending punishment among parents. Many, including father Eddie Hall below, shaved their kids’ hair to teach them a lesson.
But does this method of punishment really work?
This dad has a different approach. At first, it seems like he’s about to cut his son Isaiah’s hair as punishment, but at the last moment, he does something surprising.
“There’s no way in the world I would ever embarrass my son like that,” he said. “It doesn’t take all of that.”
He continued, “Good parenting starts before he even gets to the point of being out of control. Good parenting is getting up in the middle of the night…and praying for your child. Good parenting is letting your child know that you love them, regardless of what they are and who they are, and showing them the way by example.”
