A video went viral earlier this week of a father beating his daughter with a leather belt.

The video provides no context, however, based on what he says to her, it is apparent that she has engaged in some type of sexual behaviour.

In this video I ask the question as to whether we need to stop normalising beating our children?

For some, the fact I am asking this question is absurd. Some people will understand that the term ‘beating’ alone screams abuse. However, there are still a lot of people that believe that beating/hitting your child is a necessary form of punishment.

In this video I discuss the implications of this particular scenario.

I look forward to your thoughts. Please leave your comments below.
