The way we discipline our children has become a hot topic of discussion since we are no longer allowed to physically punish our kids like we were as kids for fear of interference of the state. There is a fine line between beating your kid and spanking your kid when they are acting up. And kids are told to call the police if they are being physically punished leaving the power to the kids and the state and not the parent. But, there are some things that are just going too far like this mother who burned her six-year-old child's hand on a hot stove because he was hitting.
This Florida mother was arrested after allegedly pushing her 6-year-old son's hand against a hot stove as a punishment for hitting. The mother is defending her actions and saying that her son's punishment was justified. She claims that she is not a bad mom.
Miriam Rebolledo got a call while she was home from her son's teacher. The teacher told her that her son had been caught hitting another student. This was not the child's first infraction of this kinds, so Rebolledo took her son's hand and forced it against a hot burner on the stove which severely injured him.
Rebolledo was arrested and faces charges of aggravated child abuse. Despite the severity of the charges against her, she still defends her actions as just.
"My son is so rebellious that he got to the point to kill an animal," she says. "What am I supposed to do? Stay home without doing anything for my son? All the news every day, you see young people -- 12, 13, 14 years old -- they end up in schools with guns. And in this country, it's so easy to get guns. You want my son to grow up to be a bully who beats up on kids? And he isn’t just going after boys -- he bullied a girl."
Rebolledo claims that she has tried several other forms of punishment for past incidents. She did not say what those other punishments were. She also says that she is worried that if she had not done something so extreme that her son's behavior would only get worse
The judge in her case, Ariana Fajardo, had no empathy for Rebolledo. She said, "Maybe in Colombia, it's okay to take the child and put their burning hand on a stove, but in the United States, it's not." For now, Rebolledo's son remains in foster care.
