A Texas father is facing a firestorm on social media and even dealing with Child Protective Services, after posting pictures of his 3-year-old daughter in a makeshift “jail” as punishment for her behavior.
While some have commended Juliano Parker’s unique chastisement, others have driven him to the point of pleading for mercy and asking if people prefer he just die?
Parker posted the pictures of his daughter, Aubrey’Ella, in an orange t-shirt, doing dishes and having a less than happy meal, and explained why he chose such a unique punishment.
“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 spanking and nowadays you can’t spank kids how they did back in the day [because] they call that abuse,” Parker wrote on Facebook.
“So today I told my daughter since you wanna be a bad girl, let me show you where the bad kids go. I turned my apartment into a jail. I took away her clothes, now she gets to wear my orange shirt,” he said.
“I made her clean up the front room and wash the dishes,” the father continued. “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,” Parker said.
What he didn’t expect was the post to go viral and that the responses wouldn’t all be supportive.
Picking up on the mixed reaction, Parker removed the original post and issued an apology.
I really regert 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.
Unfortunately for this father, his apology wasn’t enough as he said Child Protective Services had been contacted and visited him at home.
“So I’m all over the news all over social media,” he wrote on Facebook, Saturday. “Cps came to my crib already. CCPD has been informed about me. I took down that picture I said sorry like what you want me to do now die???”
What do you think? Was the punishment proper or too extreme?
