Mother treated her child poorly

Published 10:41am Thursday, June 27, 2013

Last Friday as I was sitting at the clinic waiting to see the doctor, a mom and her little boy came in. He was maybe 5 years old. She was on her phone texting.

The little boy asked her a question. She replied “shut up and sit down or I’ll spank you.” This happened a few times.

My reply to her and other parents is this: Put down your phones and listen to your kids. They are little for such a short time. Soon they won’t want your attention. Love them and spend time with them.
