I think almost everyone can agree that children need discipline. I was disciplined as a child according to my actions but my parents knew what line to not cross and were still able to get their point across. I ran into a video on Youtube the other day that disturbed me pretty badly.
Be warned that the video could be considered disturbing by some:
The cause for the vicious beating was because she had downloaded pirated content online; music, to be more precise. Apparently this was a reoccurring thing and once the daughter sensed that something was about to happen, she turned on a hidden camera to catch the father beating her in action.
Personally, I think one, maybe two lashes with the belt would've sufficed and removing her privilege to use the Internet for a month. In my opinion, this man crossed the line between "discipline" and stepped into "beating".
So I'll ask you, fellow AF'ers, do you think this was too much? And to what extent would you take disciplining your children?
