Travon Grayson

Remember the 6-year-old boy with a behavioral disorder who required 5 men to restrain him while getting his hair cut? Many of you suggested the boy needed a beating to correct his behavior.

Well that’s what happened to a 7-year-old Baltimore boy who acted out in class.

Timothy Randall Korr, a 25-year-old teacher’s assistant was charged with felony first- and second-degree child abuse for assaulting a 2nd grader.

Travon Grayson, 7, was treated at a hospital for a fractured jaw after Korr assaulted him while taking him to the principal’s office for disciplinary reasons.

Surveillance video shows Korr carrying the boy over his shoulder because the boy refused to walk. At some point along the way, Korr decided to discipline the boy himself.

The video shows Korr putting Travon down and then slamming him against a wall and knocking out several of his teeth.

“The video does show him carrying the child and slamming him up against the wall, and it’s very difficult to watch. We cringed a number of times as we watched the video,” said Baltimore police media relations Chief T.J. Smith.

“It’s never appropriate to inflict this type of harm on a child,” Smith said.

Travon’s case is typical of the trauma and physical abuse suffered by children with behavioral problems.

This post in no way suggests that Travon has been diagnosed with any behavioral disorders.

    Uhhh, that doesn’t look like a “minor injury” to me.

  • Tammie Reed

    I have a friend that is a school teacher and he hates kids and he doesn’t have any of his own. My thing is, if you know kids get on your nerves, why go into that field? Just to get a paycheck n benefits? Hope he gets what’s coming to him, so sad! Smh!

  • CaliVirgo

    That man is a monster..As a PARENT I understand how you can need to SPANK a child but this is some other shit

  • hotntot95

    Sandra, when normal people spank a child for acting up it does not end up like this…this poor child was beat up…there is a difference..

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    And this cat is still walking around!?! He would be dead on site. Sorry not sorry!

  • Chile_Pleeze

    Hmmm that’s not a spanking…

  • Finding Forever…

    At some point along the way, Korr decided to discipline the boy himself.
    ~~~~~~~~~
    And this HERE is the problem. You aren’t paid to discipline anyone’s child & to that degree at that. Nah…Nope. Prison is exactly what he deserves. This was breaking news last night & according to his Mom she said he was on his way to surgery to get his damn mouth wired. To me & my ears (eyes) that’s NOT a minor injury.

  • ReadingsFundamentalH8TStalkers

    I would be in jail……..

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    I personally feel,if you dont have and/or never had any children of your own…then your kind should NEVER be caught physically chastising a child.PERIOD!I have real problem with this type of thing.Its like going to see marriage councilor with your wife/husband….only to find out the coucilor in question has NEVER been married ever in life….(face palm)just crazy with a “k” to me,personally.?

  • Nelleoftheball

    The boy’s father should be allowed to be alone in a room with the teachers assistant for 15 mins. I know if it was mine, my husband would have him touching every wall in that room with his face

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The video shows Korr putting Travon down and then slamming him against a wall and knocking out several of his teeth.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Wtf is wrong with people? This is not discipline, which school officials shouldn’t be doing anyway, but this is ABUSE. That ninja better hope that little boy doesn’t have a single man in his life that gives a f about him.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    He would be d?ad, when the police come to lock me up for assaulting him, like he did my son. Some things the police don’t need to be called for first. Look at that babies face. I HATE bullies. I bet he wouldn’t have went ape shït on one of those big high school students.

  • hi-liter

    Saw this on another site and it said when the mother got there, the boy was crying in the ambulance with the teacher assistant standing there with her son’s blood all over his shirt. I. Would. Have. Lost. My. Noddles.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Why would they even allow the man to be around the child. Even if they hadn’t seen the video the little boy had probably already accused him of assaulting him. So why tf would they even allow him to be around the child. I hate people.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I just read where someone reported that the child went limp after being slammed into the wall.

    Korr’s big retarded azz weighs 250 lbs reportedly. Ohhh I can’t wait for them to lock his azz up.

  • brooklyn23

    There are people that have kids and still don’t like kids. I have kids, I’m into my own, and I like some kids outside of my own, but I’m not gonna lie I don’t like all kids. Kids are people and I don’t like them all. But yes your friend is stupid for taking a position like that.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    The tutor still breathing?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I beg to differ. “Normal people” do not spank children.

  • hi-liter

    Is there a pic of Korr?

  • hi-liter

    He ain’t going where? To jail? I bet he does.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Minor injuries are bruises, cuts and swelling, hun.

  • felicia

    This tutor would not have had a chance to be arrested he would be dead if I was this child parent/parents! A grown ass man beating on a 7year old lil boy that he is suppose to be teaching, knocked his teeth out, look at this baby’s face! lord where is this boys father, uncles, cause he couldn’t be mines, my family would tear that tutor’s ass up! Wouldn’t be nothing to arrest! They would be arresting us! And Sandy this is not the same as the other kid with haircut, the parent should of been disciplining her own child and has a right to do so however they chose as long as its not abusive, a normal spanking when needed is not child abuse, this is a case of someone who is not the parent abusing a child that they are suppose to protect, teach and help no comparison!

    Just lowdown. He even mean mugging in the pic.

  • hotntot95

    Shiddd…u betta or they gonna grow up and beat you…u talk like u don’t have kids…they can be bad AF..the scriptures say spare the rod spoil the child…this child however was abused and dude needs to be locked up..

  • hi-liter

    But he had teeth knocked out. I’m surprised his jaw isn’t broken.

  • CS

    WTF!!! This is not minor!!!! His jaw is broken according to the updates!! This is ASSAULT not a spanking … please stop the BS … shame on you smh!

    I knew his jaw had to be broken if teeth were knocked out.

  • shun king

    The assistant is a kid himself and can’t control his temper

    My first thought!

  • Keesh5000

    Someone will die behind my child.,….call me FIRST

  • hi-liter

    That nigga been on this earth 25 years, he’s not a kid.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    There is no confirmation that his jaw was broken. But the point of this point was children with behavioral problems are often traumatized and brutalized by people who are frustrated with their behavior.

  • E Jai

    Lol

  • E Jai

    Um no!…25 is young but not a child!

  • E Jai

    Lol

  • hi-liter

    So are you saying the TA was justified because the boy has behavioral problems and one might understand why the kid was beaten the way his was beaten?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Beating them only makes them fear you. The jails are full of men who were beaten as children.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    People always ask “why be a teacher if you hate kids”? Same reason uncaring people go into healthcare. They have a measure of power over someone younger/weaker/vulnerable at their mercy. They can exert their influence and inflict fear, and because they are in a position that society views as honorable – they also get praise for doing a “thankless” job. This arrangement is all good as long as they’re dominant. But when someone challenges their “authority” they act out – always in anger and sometimes in violence.
    Everybody on here know a cop/doctor/nurse/teacher who you be looking at like, “for why you got that job?”

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No. In an earlier post about a boy with behavioral problems most of my readers said he needed his butt beat. From their mouths to God’s ears. This boy was beaten. My point is abusing children with behavioral problems is wrong.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the assistant had behavioral problems when he was a boy. The assistant was likely beaten as a child. Violence begins at home. We have to break the cycle of violence.

  • mela.reign77

    He beat this child like he was a man in the street (so it appears from the bruises and scars) This is totally unacceptable and he should be punished beyond measure! If you don’t have the patience to deal with children of any magnitude then you should find another occupation. I would have know understanding if this was my child. This really makes my blood boil!

  • Pam

    Truth!!!

  • mela.reign77

    He is old enough to know better. He can legally buy cigarettes and beer so in my eyes he is a full grown man. This was a brutal act of violence against a child that could not defend himself. He’s a creep and a monster in my eyes.

  • hotntot95

    It’s also full of grown men who weren’t…and I guarantee u they also had fear of someone…fear can be a healthy in relationships if done correctly..we don’t live in a world where fear doesn’t exist…my grandfather would give a simple “look” and instill fear..he never beat us growing up…we all love and respect him..R.I.P. J.E.

  • Prettybrowneyes

    I wish someone besides family or me/dad touch nary a hair on mine. Foh

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Did you see the video of the 6-year-old boy in the barber shop? This is the same type of behavior that caused the assistant to snap and beat the boy. This type of violence begins at home. We can’t beat children and not expect them to inflict violence on others.

  • Pam

    Oh my…

  • mela.reign77

    Not to sound stereotypical but this fool looks like he will beat somebody. Heck no!!!!!!! I would beat them skinny sweat pants clean up off him!

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    It aint no stereotype. He did beat somebody

  • mela.reign77

    Yes I saw it and I will say this I would have handled the situation differently. Not sure if that was his mom or not but the first notion of unacceptable behavior would have been the end of the hair cut for me. Having grown men forcefully restrain him like that did something to me. We would have had a conversation and tried it again another day. However I don’t think if I had kids my child would express that sort of behavior. I totally agree with you by things beginning at home. It was sad to watch just like the photo of that baby was hard to look at for me. I think people lack patience and understanding so the first action to take for some is directed in violence. It’s really sad to see this.

  • Lisa daniels

    One of my high school teachers would try me about going to thd restroom doing her class, I would check that bish everything and tell her to call my mama if she had a problem. She never did call my mama.

  • shun king

    Excatly and a some 25 year olds these days have the mentality of a 15 year old prone to act out

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I wish a MF would like a tree in this bish?? call me don’t touch my child

  • semaj24philly

    It’s a difference between an azz whooping & just str8 up abuse.What he did to this boy was something u do to a grown man who slept with your wife not a 7yr old boy who can’t defend himself.

  • Lisa daniels

    Been saying all this for years and besides, teachers don’t make good money especially in non union states.

  • Lisa daniels

    You say he teeth got knock out and that is minor?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    If u don’t discipline them the police will. This was a beat down, there’s a difference

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Not that I could find but they described him in a news article

  • Shira Harding-James

    Spanking for discipline and beating the teeth out of someones mouth are two totally different things

  • TeeTee

    He knocked out his teeth? THAT IS ABUSThin line but he seriously crossed it.. how about we knock out his teeth!

  • MyNameIs

    Please reassure me that you’re not condoning what this GROWN man did to this child. This was NOT a spanking!

  • QweenOfThorns

    I hope they beat the dog sh!t outta this teacher…wtf was he thinking?! You don’t put your hands on other people’s chirrin.

    My kid is 7 and I have never had to hit her. I got whippings as a kid but I won’t do it to mine. Discipline should happen but if you have to beat a kid into submission you have already failed. One of my white clients also has a 7 year old and she said “my kid won’t even listen to me” bish wheet?! It starts early correcting their bad behavior…alot of parents lets their toddler act a certain way because they think its “cute”. All I have to do is look at my girl….maybe raise my voice a little and she knows to do better.

  • Username 222

    Ridiculous! I hope he gets handled in jail.

  • MyNameIs

    I’d like to know if background checks are done for tutors. ?

  • CookieMobster

    You are exactly right!! I have had to spank my son maybe 5 times in his little life. 4 of those were for cutting up or acting up at school. I taught my son respect for others and to be ashamed of himself when he behaves badly and as an 11 yr old young man I am almost always proud of his behavior!!

  • Layah Jhene

    Blame the Mother. Get your child under control before someone else does it. Other people will do worse. If he got behavior problems that requires medical attention than get the help. If he just showing out because he can and don’t get corrected than What do you expect.

  • MyNameIs

    ? so it’s okay for someone to hit your child for misbehaving???

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Your logic is quite flawed.

    Touch in agreement! I am very slow to anger, but for my children.

  • Layah Jhene

    Yep! discipline them. My kids show disrespect or show their ass,check them. If you scared then call me. If my kids were like this It’s my job to get them under control before any type of mess like this could happen. If my kids had behavior problems Its my or my husband’s job to get them help or warn people about their behavior issues. But my kids aren’t like this but I got a nephew like this and he does this stuff for attention

  • Layah Jhene

    People’s thinking is flawed. It’s everybody’s fault but the parents.

  • Hmmm~?

    Black folks, please do better.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    You assume I disagree with your comment regarding parental guidance, I do not. I do, however, disagree that this condones a teacher, the very person PAID to protect and teach the child, to cause him harm. Do not touch another person’s child. Period.

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Sadly, this baby probably don’t have a caring male in his life and that’s why the aide, saw him as an easy target. I’m sure it’s plenty of kids who act up but have their father or an adult male, who will stand up for them. Why didn’t he try that with them? These teachers are sneaky. They know who to fvck with and who to leave alone.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Exactly. My mom can still get me right together with her tone alone. Lol.

  • Layah Jhene

    I didn’t assume nothing. Nobody wouldn’t have to touch him if his Mother or Father had him under control. Other people don’t play that mess. They’ll knock yo kid out with the quickness.

  • Pinky310

  • Sayitreal

    You a damn fool, this child’s teeth were actually knocked out and furthermore no one has diagnosed him with any type of behavioral problems you don’t know what has transpired with this child and this adult maybe that’s why he didn’t want to walk with the adult.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    This is insanity. This child was brutalized. Adults are supposed to lead by example. Use your words to set an example for children. This child was beaten like he was a grown man. I hope his parents push the DA to criminally try their child’s aggressor. Get him a psychologist, sue in civil court for damages of intentional infliction of emotional distress as well as assault and battery of a minor and whatever other charges apply. Put that money in trust for that child and never look back.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Right

  • Pinky310

    Right like you can whoop and discipline your child without beating them within an inch of their life.

    What? Get your child in control before someone else does? An abuser does not give a crap about how under control a child is because an abuser will ALWAYS BE OUT OF CONTROL…and their abuser ways will always show. It’s sad that adults have temper tantrums worse than a child and cant control themselves. Instead of blaming the mother blame the abuser?? for putting their muhfuckin hands on a 7 year old child and knocking his teeth out. Are you an abuser? People like you disgust me???

  • pecancandy

    I have been in the helping profession over 20 years and I still cry when I see a child abused in anyway. I do believe that children can be raised without physical punishment but I am not opposed to a few pops when needed. I won’t debate corporal punishment but I will say that it should be administered judiciously. A child should never be hit in the vacinity of a vital organ. He could have caused this baby to have a traumatic brain injury or even death. Children can be very difficult ,however it is imperative that the adult maintain control and use common sense. This assistant is in a lot of trouble and this school district is about to pay out a huge sum of money.

    We wrongly adopted the lash of the slavemaster. The lash and brands silenced us into acceptable behavior. Tragic it carries on. My parents didn’t hit us nor did I hit my son.

    “trauma and physical abuse suffered by children with behavioral problems”–
    Unfortunately this us true. Children with disability are far more likely to suffer abuse & neglect. Dealing with any child is not for the weak, but a child with issues (medical or otherwise) is especially challenging. The ones who need understanding the most, often get it the least. But for mine….errybody gone SETTLE THE PHUCK DOWN. I don’t play. But they know that cause I stay involved BEFORE anything jumps off.

    How do you know he acted out in class?

    I don’t care how bad this boy acted out but the teacher didn’t have to put hands on him like an adult. I would have gave the child 2 chances then we are taking a walk to the office and I’m calling your momma on the job. I would have held him by his hand and if that didn’t work call the principle myself and tell him or her to pick up this bad @$$ kid. I have class to teach. To simple

    Not sure why people have jobs involving children with this sort of temper. For instance, I could never teach or open a daycare. The kids would drive me over the edge and then I may have a lawsuit on my hands. This is something I know about myself, why can’t other’s accept the same truth?

  • TOO REAL

    True a teacher should never touch a child but in the same instance a parent shouldn’t expect a school to deal with a child whom the parent can’t or won’t control. Get him some behavioral help. His mother expects everyone else to do her job even the barber. See the first video.

  • middleagerant42

    For all of you grown ass people making snide remarks about next time he will listen and blaming the mom you need to be ashamed of yourself. As a parent to a special needs child and the aunt to nephews who has issues my heart goes out to this child and his family. My son is now 17 and well adjusted. I was blessed to have my child in one of the best special ed programs in the country. But trust me I had many rough days when he was in elementary school. I am a very hands on type of parent and when you have a child who has behavioural problems you have to be completely involved. I worked from home and I’m married and my husband works so I had the support I needed to work part time from home around my children. My nephew is autistic and I have other nephews who were adhd as well. My autistic nephew I helped to raise as well because his mom worked full-time in a job that wasn’t as flexible with phone calls and leaving because the school needs you. So I stepped in. My nephew is now 23 works and is highly functioning. It takes a village to raise our children. Especially our black boys. They get enough from the world wanting to destroy them. You raise a child with discipline but even more is to raise him or her with love patience and understanding. And we wonder why our boys and men are so angry. This baby had his jaw broken! He is 7! He is a baby not a grown man. This has me in tears this morning. How can you hurt a child like that? Idgaf what he has done he is 7. Smh ?

    That doesn’t look like the boy from the barbershop video.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yup, but all you SLAVE MENTALITY Negroes LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE ADVOCATING VIOLENCE on YOUR own children.
    Then ya shocked AND shook when masta’ charlie does the same.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    “Learn a new way! This slave handbook on discipline and parenting is getting old.”

    Standing Ovation!!!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yes, they do. Yes, they do.
    You are in DENIAL.

  • yallcrazy

    Thats exactly why I couldn’t be a teacher. These kids off the chain. They will take you there. They taunt them teachers, curse and disrupt. These teachers be losing it. If you are not a calm person and will just call security to have the child removed don’t take that kind of job.

  • MadameMixi

    The article does not imply that is is the same boy from the barbershop. The 1st paragraph simply asks if we remember the 6 year old who required 5 men to restrain him. Reading comprehension.

  • sunni_daze

    Hello

  • sunni_daze

    They released the picture of the teacher.

  • Faundala Weymon

    Yes you hit the nail on the head. I also have an autistic 17yr old. Never a break and elementary school was very tough. Especially being one of less then 10 minority families at the school. It certainly does take a village. That poor child didn’t deserve to be handled like a grown man!

    Why everyone gotta be autistic? The boy at the barber shop was bad. Point blank period. Him and this child could use a month with auntie Bird. I don’t need to spank them to get them under control.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Yes, it does. Yes, it does.
    You are in Denial.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You do not have to hit your child to discipline.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    SHOUT OWT TO ALL THE CHILD ABUSERS ON THIS POST TODAY!!!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Hopefully your child doesn’t have behavioral problems. If they do I wouldn’t trust you either. It’s normally the parents that cause the problems with the child.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    He didn’t flurry on the child. He slammed him into the wall. Had he not done it with so much force it would have been more gentle than a spanking. Putting hands on a small child can go left. It’s the chance you take when using violence as discipline.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Generally the law won’t beat them. And their form of discipline works the same as spanking. The person becomes more violent. Prison is full of people who got but whoopins.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    There’s always one lol No I don’t but if I tell my child something more than twice obviously I need to find another approach. Spanking is a last resort. However, there will never be a need to break my child’s jaw and knock their teeth out that’s not discipline.

  • hotntot95

    I did use the word “Normal” for a reason..taken from my standpoint, (my son)..I know how much pressure to apply to administer proper discipline to a child that played peewee football, taking tackles, running jumping off jungle gyms..vs a person that slams a child head up against a wall or using a closed fist.. also this child shown is way too young and frail framed to be putting hands on anyway..this system works only if u have common sense, love and patience to know what form of punishment is necessary for each individual child..but thanks anyway for your insight?

  • hotntot95

    The way I was raised was “old school”..go get your switch off the nearest tree if u defy anyone that was an adult…children spoke when spoken to…stayed in their place, acting out in public would result in some form of punishment when we got home…the scriptures say spare the rod, spoil the child…a child being beat up vs a spanking is 2 different issues…but thanks for your insight?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Generally!?!?! Look around hun. You missed my point Bird. People get in their feelings when someone spanks their child but are quiet as hell when these same kids are getting monkey stomped and shot in the streets by police. I can’t discipline my child the way I see fit but the police can shoot them? *blank stare* I disagree with their form of discipline being the same as a spanking. When we spank our kids its not with the intent to harm or kill them its to reinforce our expectations of them. Again, there’s a difference. You’re right the prison is full of people who got butt whoopins, and there are also people who got butt whoopins that are not violent. Most of us on this blog got tagged in our youth and are productive citizens. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a6e46d762a466b0af7a06490c3d2b57e3212f595ae48e07fd44b91dbd93c5fff.png

    It was wrong then & it is wrong now.
    A parent’s presence, words & behavior will do the same thing, if done correctly.
    And that scripture does not mean beat your child. It is one of the MOST misquoted scriptures in the Bible.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Oh, there are more of me. I am not the only one.
    Active Parenting.
    You tell your child to do something ONE TIME.
    If, the child does NOT do as respectfully requested……
    Everything is shut down – as a parent, you do not have to yell, scream, cuss and hit to make your point. That is not how your child comes to TRULY respect you.
    After, the child does NOT do as told, after being asked respectfully, The Active Parent, walks to the child and calmly ask, if the child heard him/her.
    This will yield better results.

  • QweenOfThorns

    Kudos to you. Sounds like you are raising a respectable young man. He will make a fine husband and father someday.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I meant there is always one that wants to dictate how one should handle their child. The “type” of discipline depends on the situation and the parent. As previously stated, if ” I” have to constantly repeat myself, another approach is needed and a spanking is a “last resort.” I never mentioned screaming, cursing, etc. (now you’re stereotyping) so please don’t add to my font. Secondly, my kids know whats expected of them so I rarely have to discipline them. Now if you want to walk your child to a corner and pull out the clay people, do what works for you. However, I’m raising responsible youth that will be held accountable for their actions in my house.

  • Guess Who

    Yeah you BETTA add that last sentence in there.

    And no one was saying to BEAT the little boy like the field hand however training a child up from the time he/she can walk and spanking that child as a form of discipline would damn near GUARANTEE that acting out like that little turd did in the barber chair would be at a minimum.

    Then again you think Trump is a decent man so your thought process is already warped.

  • hotntot95

    Sorry.. but not u or anyone else on this blog qualify as a source to tell me a Bible verse is misquoted..I come here to comment and bounce…not debate…we agree to disagree..bye.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You have no idea, if I am or not.
    And, if you feel that way, you are not qualified to tell me you have the truth and I do not.
    It works BOTH ways.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Do you not see how you are a dictator?
    I am free to express my opinion.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    If that’s what you want to call it lol yes you are free to do whatever you want… don’t be censored chile. Again do what works for “you” :coffee:

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I want your opinion on the new post on this. Its been updated.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Come upstairs

  • hotntot95

    I reaaaly do not care..u are a faceless, nameless, nobody on a gossip blog…I just basically told me my upbringing was wrong…and I’m not supposed to shut u down???..ok

    You need to take responsibility for your actions. You began with sarcasm and ridicule and LOLing.

    I stated, “You do not have to hit your child to discipline.”

    That is it. That is all. So who showed their behind by being rude and disrespectful. Beatings, do not work. ALMOST all Black adults I know that were BEAT, are quick to be slick mouthed, rude and sarcastic, start chaos & confusion FIRST and then back peddle when called on it.

    Always.

  • hotntot95

    I didn’t read your rant…it’s taking too much of my energy…but your exact words were…” it was wrong then and it’s wrong now…
    Again..Abuse and discipline is 2 different subjects…
    ..we can agree to disagree..

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I think I confused with someone else.
    If I did , I apologize. But, I still stand by my words.
    An emotionally mature parent does not have to yell, cuss, scream, name call nor hit to make their point.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Far from a rant.
    Ranting: speak or shout at length in a WILD, impassioned way.
    But, Fine.
    We do not have to agree.

  • hotntot95

    Yelling, cursung or screaming was not apart of this convo…spanking and abuse was…it’s OK tho, we don’t have to agree..

  • hotntot95

    That’s cool..

    WHERE’S THE VIDEO?

    Who your lil fast tail was meeting up with in the bathroom? I know your bladder wasn’t that sensitive in high school. Just kidding. LOL

  • Lisa daniels

    It was that time of month. The fault was flooding.

  • Cindy

    This child can’t help the way he acts. Who knows how much therapy he’s had or is still doing. Trust me I am the mother of an autisic child who has several therapies a week on top of what I do with her. It’s NOt the parent or Child’s fault. Pray to god that you never have to experience a child with issues that are not easily controlled. They cannot help it. Educate yourself before speaking on something you don’t know about. This man is 100% to blame plain and simple.

  • Pinky310

    Touchè. But there is also a lot of African American doctors, lawyers, chefs and plenty of other things.

  • Petty Labelle

    Not huge at all. There’s a very thin line between abuse and “corporal punishment”. It’s really a matter of force. Lets just for ONCE use our brains and ability to educate ourselves on alternatives and see how that works as well. Maybe it will get some of our angry young men who’ve been yelled at and had the “brakes beat off” of them at home out of the prisons that they’re currently overpopulating mostly for assault, battery, anger etc. . Find another way! This ain’t working for most of you. The proof is in the results.

  • Petty Labelle

    Exactly! But that requires time, effort, education and consistency. It’s much easier to just smack them.

  • Petty Labelle

    Agreed!

  • Petty Labelle

    Oh I’m sorry I just have a degree as a certified educator K-12 who has worked directly with them for nearly a decade. I also have a nephew who is mentally disabled who used to be beaten on the regular by his parents who thought he was “Just bad” as a toddler/pre-teen. He just couldn’t be still, or quiet, or good for long. He later as a teenager went on to start fighting, cutting himself, and not wanting to be here any longer. I handle him in a totally different way now that I know better and realize he has special needs. BUT I’m sure you or Auntie Bird have more extensive credentials and a long list of successful offspring that you’ve produced under this rearing.

  • sunni_daze

    Yep that the dick-skin that beats on babies.

  • slim3542

    THE DAY WE STOP AS DUMBASS NEGROES ALLOWING THE SCHOOL SYTEM RUN UNDER WHITE SUPREMACY, FROM GIVING OUR CHILDREN POISONOUS FLU SHOTS AND VACCINES THAT CAUSE AUTISM AND ADHD….THEN WE WONT HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS TYPE CRAP.

  • MsEducated

    Let me say this……say Godbye to your mom before you ever think about doing bodily harm to mine…. I’m tellin you I would have slaughter that teacher something serious.. chile pls.. don’t ever play with someone’s child.. that’s committing suicide#

  • Pinky310

    And BTW funny white kids don’t get whoopings and are the most to committ mass shootings lol
