One father has become the center of attention after posting pictures of the punishment he laid down on his three-year-old daughter for acting out. Some are calling it unfair, while others are praising his unusual “technique.”
Juliano Parker’s Facebook post, which has been deleted, was about putting his daughter Aubrey’Ella in “Jail.”
Opposing Views provided the text from the deleted post:
“My daughter Aubrey’Ella has been fighting with my wife and I, disrespecting us in public, not listening and talking back a lot. Spankings don’t work no more. My daughter is used to spankings and nowadays you can’t spank kids how they did back in the day [because] they call that abuse.
While her brother and sister are eating pizza and drinking juice, she gets meat, potatoes and water. I made her clean up the front room and wash the dishes. And took away her bed and gave her a small mattress, put it on the floor and made her sleep by herself. Giving her a taste of what it’s like to be in jail for not following the law.
Now ya’ll can say what ya’ll want but I’m breaking this bad behavior before it gets too out of control without spanking her.”
He didn’t intend on his punishment to go viral and cause such a stir, so he deleted the original post and clarified that his daughter is actually a good girl, but just acting out for attention:
“I really [regret] posting that pic of my daughter on social media like that I admit it was wrong didn’t think it was gonna go viral smh God knows my heart. My daughter is a good girl just been acting out lately and I was just trying to show her with bad behavior comes consequence. Now my daughter all over the internet for being bad kid but in reality she just acting out for attention.
So I been just showing her love and being extra nice but not letting her walk all over me just let trying to drive out all that bad behavior with love just like MLK say hate can’t drive out hate or in my case anger can’t drive out anger but love can so my advice to all the parents who shared my post love you kids but don’t let them walk all over you just like the OG from my church told me be consist with how you discipline you kids and after a while they know you mean business but just be patient with kids . Just as God gives us Grace.”
