It’s official…the world of video postings and social media has caused some parents to lose their mind. Many disturbing video’s have received media attention recently, but this one takes the cake. A St. Louis, Missouri mom apparently found it funny to video tape her toddlers (wearing diapers) fighting, then posted it on her Facebook page.
The fact that the mother also is heard cheering them on and encouraging them to fight while yelling, “Got some action! Y’all better ball up some fists!” is sickening to watch. Did she think she would get away with it and her friends would not turn her in? Did she really think that was funny?
Well, law enforcement is not laughing and neither are parents across the country. The mother is now under investigation and faces charges of felony child endangerment and Child Welfare Services is now involved.
It’s a good thing that a friend showed the video to St. Louis TV station KTVI and said that the mother needed to be stopped. She also told the reporter, “It’s just sickening and I feel like there should be some kind of criminal action taken. I couldn’t even watch the whole video. I had to stop it and look again. It was sad.”
We can expect this mom to be charged with some stiff penalties, because after viewing this video it is obvious she deserves it. Have people lost their minds? Or is the internet the culprit? Do we as a society encourage this behavior by running to watch the most disgusting videos posted on Youtube?
It is frightening to think how this sick behavior will affect our children of the future. And we wonder why crime and shootings is up among youth. I sincerely hope they use her as an example to other parents who may consider doing something this foolish.
