From making kids hold signs on street corners to shaving heads, many parents have gained attention for posting embarrassing photos and videos of their children as punishment for bad behavior.
A fed up father made a video that turned the tables on parents who publicly humiliate their children on social media.
Wayman Gresham said he's watched several videos of people shaming in their children. In his video posted last week, Greshman says he decided to follow suit and teach his son a lesson through a “bald head, messed up haircut challenge, because I'm not happy with him.”
With hair clippers in hand, Greshman is seemingly about to give his son a bad haircut, but then he turns it around.
“Come here, boy. Give me a hug,” the father of four says as he embraces his son and proceeds to call out parents who have used social media to embarrass their kids.
“I would never embarrass my son like that,” Greshman, who lives in Florida, says to the camera.
A Google search of “Kid shaming” shows countless stories of parents who point out or punish their children in a public forum. The trend typically garners mixed reactions from parents that range from praise to disdain.
“Good parenting is letting your child know that you love them regardless of what they are and who they are and showing them the way by example,” Greshman says in the video.
The video has been viewed more than 18 million times and received praise at the dad's approach to disciplining his kids.
