    Quoted “First of all, I’m thinking it seems more like a bullying technique than parenting technique. It seems more to be the parent’s anxiety and the parent’s expectations than the child’s needs,”

    Story said an event like this could lead to possible trust and confidence issues within a child. Story said there may be something parents can learn from the incident.

    I think the father is remorseful to the public eye but who know what he has said to his little defenseless ( mind & body) son! Behind closed doors I bet he blamed him for this…this guy is a poor excuse for a loving supportive dad! SHAME ON HIM!!!

    I see absolutely nothing wrong with what this dad did. Matter of fact, I know I’ve treated all 3 of my known kids the same way.
