Wanting to teach her child a lesson, the mother stripped him to his underwear while they were in public and made him squat as people watched to make him see what it’s like to feel violated and embarrassed.
The mother then called the parents of the girl and apologized for what her son did. She also said that she would discipline her son better in the future.
While it may be too extreme to a lot of netizens, they admitted that this punishment and lesson will remain with him for quite some time.
