    There is a video going around on the internet, I don't know if the Video will post here, of a young parent yelling at his child during a live stream, I don't know If it would be considered abuse..


    I mean it's still not great, But I don't know if the guy should lose his Kid over it,


    My thing is, My parents had yelled at me like that before when I was little, I just don't know if it qualifies as abuse. But this Guy, He's the next big subject of Cancel culture. I'm just on the fence about it.

    Yeah, It's not good, And don't get me wrong, He without a doubt dropped the good parenting ball for a moment. I just don't know if this was the kind of thing someone should lose a child over is all :/ It's still not great though.


    For the record though, I've shown this video to quite a few people, The general consensus is he did abuse that child. For me though, That's how I grew up,, I personally don't see the abuse part. Not That I would yell at a kid like that, It's just, The reality I grew up in, Wasn't as soft as today I suppose.

    Update, I've shown this video to several people now, without a doubt everyone says this was abuse.

    I mean sure, It's not a good thing he did, I grant anyone that... My problem is, I see someone who wasn't ready to be a parent, and doesn't make a good parent, Maybe he should have never been a parent, But I don't see a demon. I guess what I'm saying is, I've seen worse from the world than this.

    Well, brother, I know people may think, Why can't Sp, See the abuse. And I can to a large degree. It's just, I never had the opportunity to Raise children at that age, I've always been a stepfather, The youngest Was already seven when I met her.

    However, there are also different rules to being a stepfather. For instance, a stepfather at least to my experience should never speak to a child that way at all. But with that admitted, I don't have the parenting experience That some people my age would have. So there is a lot about this whole situation that I just don't have the experience to grasp fully.

    Being a stepfather in my opinion is tougher. I have got step kids and feel as though I have to step lightly if the kids were to misbehave. Lucky for me I have a good relationship with them and are more mates than anything else however they do respect me, listen to me and their mum also supports me.

    I've been a stepfather Twice, In a previous relationship, The Kids did like me, Maybe even love me, But they did not respect me, I have a theory that the Respect a Stepchild affords their Stepfather May come directly from the mother. I can't confirm That. The Second Time I was a stepfather Was Magical, Jasmine and Jordan Call Me Dad. I never asked for it, They just love me. It's almost like an entirely different thing than the last time, This is Why I theorize That the love and respect Received From a stepchild is based on the mother's approval... I could be wrong though, That has been known to happen a time or two

    Let's see, man bun bitching to his infant about a game controller. That says enough. If I were that young man's father I'd be having a chat with him.
