Social media users had a lot to say after a mom went live on her daughter’s Facebook page to discipline the teen for smoking and drinking.
The daughter, who Facebook users claim is 14, is shown sitting cornered in between cabinets on the kitchen floor and crying as her mom yells and curses at her.
As the daughter seemingly holds her hand out for her phone back, the mom shoots down the daughter’s excuse of being pressured.
“Ain’t that much f****** peer pressure in the world. Do you understand me?”
In the video, the mom hits the teen on the legs with an unidentifiable object repeatedly as her daughter pleads “mommy.”
The mother yelled:
“You don’t know what the f*** you smoke! You don’t know what’s out here!”
She can be heard emphasizing to her daughter that they’ve talked “every day” about the negative consequences of smoking and drinking. Further, the mother threatens to “snatch every f***** track” out of her daughter’s head.
The daughter’s Facebook page has since been deleted or changed since the live stream.
The post that started on Facebook has since spread to Twitter and garnered quite a reaction from users on both platforms.
While most viewers were understanding of the mother’s necessity to discipline the teen, they thought live streaming the incident was a little much.
One Facebook user said:
That’s one thing I will never do embarrass my child or myself on social media, I don’t condone her smoking but best believe I’ll discipline my child in the private of our home. Smh 🤦🏻♀️
Other users empathized with the teen, after witnessing her mother’s controversial tactics.
Her mom prolly the reason she out here drinking and smoking I can tell she be going through it on the regular
(W)hat a lot of people don’t realize is this type of parenting actually works because most parents try to just be reasonable and teenage girls ? (T)hey a different breed of wild and disrespectful, if her momma would’ve let her off easy she would’ve done it again. Bet she won’t now tho
Y’all think this is bad? Reasons why this new generation is soft and undisciplined. Bet if y’all see a story about this same girl dead next week because she smoked something she thought was weed y’all would think different.
In partial contrast, another user agreed that the mother’s methods will work, but will have a negative impact on the child.
The viewer tweeted:
Scaring your children into submission definitely works but it gives them trauma and mental baggage that they shouldn’t have to carry. She will never have a strong relationship with her mother, stop normalizing abusive behavior.
Do you think this mom went too far? Comment below.
