While we can understand that there are moments where a parent can lose their cool, there are also things that anyone would generally consider “bad” parenting.
Typically we would associate poor parenting with the most severe behaviors like physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, or sexual abuse.
However, sadly it can go beyond that, where parents say or do things that inadvertently harm their child.
And while there are multiple different techniques that can be used to discipline children, most parents ground their children, preventing them from leaving their room.
This was not the case for a mother from Delhi.
In Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area, a 5-year-old girl was punished by her mother for not doing her homework by placing her on the terrace in the scorching hot sun.
Video captured by a neighbor shows the poor little girl writhing in pain with her hands tied behind her back and legs bound at her ankles, all the while she is screaming.
The sickening video has gone viral, and now many are calling the mother “cruel” for torturing her child.
The incident was investigated by police, who claim that the cruel punishment took place on June 2, 2022.
A case has been registered against the mother, who decided to bind her child’s hands and feet and force her out into the sun out of rage after the child refused to do her homework.
The child’s father, Raj Kumar claims to not have been home during the incident and only found out about what had happened from his own father.
“I received a call from my father that my wife had given this severe punishment to our daughter and that I should come home,” Kumar said.
“When I got home, my father told me he came home and saw the girl tied on the terrace, and freed her.”
“My wife got angry and punished her. When my father told me, I scolded my wife a lot that day, but the next day, a relative from our village sent me the video and I scolded my wife again.”
The victim’s uncle has also claimed that the mother will always beat her kids even from small issues.
“If somebody from the family tries to meddle in between, she says that it is their kids and only she has rights over them. She was not like this before. She has become like this in the past two to three years,” Sunil said.
