    "My hope of my son is not great but I want him to live in the real world, to be a real person. I have told him surfing the web is a bad thing many times but he never listened. I beat him because I don`t want him to be ruined by the web."

    If by be a real person is someone who would undress a child and drag him by the foot on concrete. I would be more worried of him being ruined by child abuse rather than the web.

    Definitely abuse..... i`m not against smacking your child if they`ve done something major wrong that they knew to be wrong, but beating them and stripping them in public is taking things beyond tough love and into the realms of abuse. Poor kid.

    Why is there a question as to whether or not this is abuse? Did you guys read the whole thing? Did you read this part:

    He began to beat the boy, who was calling for mercy, but he said he wanted to show everyone how worthless the boy was and dragged him home after stripping him and tying up his hands.

    Ah, I see. All of the web is bad, but beating a child, stripping them and dragging them around naked in public on concrete is good. To think I had my priorities so wrong for so long!

    No, wait, I must think about this. Which is worse for the child? Seeing a million pictures of cats, a million drama queens on Facebook and probably some porn or being betrayed, beaten, stripped and dragged naked on concrete in public specifically for the purpose of humiliating him?

    Tough call.

    agree with solid parenting.

    sure if it happens in the US (or many other nations) its abuse, but this didn`t happen there. different cultures doesn`t mean theirs is wrong.

    @Angillion and all the other apologists out there.

    What is worse is that a single dad that works his a$$ off to support his family, who threw out their computer and disciplined the kid "dozens of times" to not do this, not only got ignored, but had money stolen so the kid could ignore him.

    What is worse is parents who can`t tell their screaming brat to cut it the F out. Parents who can`t or won`t RAISE THEIR CHILDREN. That`s what`s worse. And you see the cost in self-centered, entitled a$$holes all over society, and getting worse every day.

    Ritual abuse is one thing, but setting a rule and a punishment and following through is something else entirely; and while this was extreme, it`s his kid and his call.

    Those debating the other cultures type thing, where do you draw the damn line? In other cultures they allow cannibalism. In other cultures they ripped the heart out of a person every day to prevent the apocalypse. In other cultures slavery is mandatory. Just because it`s accepted there, does not make it right.

    patchouly-"He began to beat the boy,"

    Didn`t see any blood, broken bones or bruises, so it couldn`t have been too bad. (and don`t say it caused `psychological` harm...that`s bullpoo)

    " who was calling for mercy,"

    Please, most kids start calling for mercy the minute you pick up a switch. It does not equate harm.

    " but he said he wanted to show everyone how worthless the boy was and dragged him home after stripping him and tying up his hands. "

    If initial warning/punishment does not work, you try other, more stringent tactics.

    I doubt this boy was seriously harmed. We was seriously embarassed (not a crime, no lasting harm) and he `should` now realize his dad means business.

    That being said, any parent that does serious physical harm (bruises, broken anything, lacerations) he should be stopped.

    ggolbez-"Just because it`s accepted there, does not make it right."

    And just because it`s not accepted here, does not make it wrong.

    Was the child physically harmed? Did not appear to be so.

    Was the child embarrassed? Probably. That`s not a crime and can be quite useful.

    If there is no appreciable physical injury, it`s not your place to tell this father how to raise his child. (and a spanked bottom, a slapped hand or public embarassment does not constitute apprecialbe physical injury)

    I don`t care if you think it`s right or wrong, or what your culture taught you was right or wrong. If I see you doing that on the street to a child who can`t defend himself, I`m involving myself friendo. Furthermore, I`ll probably whip your ass in the process, strip you naked, and let you gauge for yourself how rehabilitated you feel when I`m done.

    Yea, he would rather ruin him. Nothing says good parenting like decades of parental loathing and counseling.

    The reason America is no longer #1 on the World Stage, and may never be again, is because parents have given over their children`s future to bleeding heart educators who put more stock in giving EVERYONE A trophy for no reason, and never spanking a child. It`s all about Self-Esteem...every thing is a handout--of trophies, grades, gold stars and compliments. This father understands that. If you don`t WORK, then you shouldn`t receive. Sitting on a computer all day in a fantasy world won`t get you through college, get you a job, put food on your table, pay your rent, or make you a contributing member of society. And if it takes some kids being humiliated and having their bottom ache for a few days to accomplish that...more power to the intelligent parent who truly loves their child enough to teach them Nothing In This Life Is a Handout...

    I can understand the father`s desire for his son to be more active regarding work and the real world, but resulting to physical violence will only instill fear and more violence as opposed to respect and dignity. He`s a f*cking kid, for christs sake...life should be more about games when you`re a kid.

    You learn to balance fun and work as you get older, under the safe teachings of your parents, not by being dragged in public without any clothes.

    Ridiculous.

    @cherrybawls, you can`t say to a kid "I love you, stop playing video games." They aren`t going to listen. Plain and simple. I`m sure the father had disciplined his kid harshly before, and if that kid still didn`t listen then he deserves to be dragged naked in the streets.

    "...parents have given over their children`s future to bleeding heart educators..."

    Ah yes, the ol` knee-jerk blame the teachers response. Followed by: "...more power to the intelligent parent who truly loves their child enough to teach them Nothing In This Life Is a Handout."

    An `intelligent parent` would not be blaming teachers for their own mistakes with childrearing and they would have made sure their kids don`t use capital letters with every word that sound all important-like.

    Ok, I remember there was an article on IAB about a father who sold his son`s toys on Ebay as punishment or something (those who remember that will know what I`m talking about ;D), and if I recall correctly, that seemed to get most of the posters there fired up saying that it was terrible, humiliating and just downright poor parenting. On this article though, I see there are mixed reactions to this situation. I`m just asking out of pure curiosity, what makes this any more right than the whole Ebay fiasco? I think some parallels can be made here. On that note, I absolutely don`t disagree with punishing the boy. I probably would have dragged him out of the place too, but I think stripping him was a little much...;-/

    No 14 year old child deserves to be tied up and dragged naked through the streets. Period. That is just abusive, and all it will teach him is that when someone does something wrong, the appropriate response is violence and humiliation. How is that going to help anything? There are other ways to discipline a child, you confiscate something they like, refuse to allow them to go to a friends house for a period of time, or ban them from attending a concert or event they wanted to go to, or assign them extra chores. Something other than stripping them naked, beating them, tying them up, and dragging them through the filthy streets where their bare skin is sure to get cut up and those cuts will probably get infected.

    What do you do to a 14 year old who does not listen or obey the rules of the parent, after parent consistantly expresses concern? Give him a cookie and some juice, sit him down at the kitchen table and waste your breath some more?
    The son stole money and snuck out of the house when his father was at work,trying to make a living.
    If I pulled that crap at age 14, my father would have put my head through a DRATING wall.
