A video of a man disciplining his teenage nephew with a belt whipping has gone viral on the interwebs.
The nephew apparently posted items on his Facebook wall that suggested his involvement with gang activity. His uncle, aware of his nephew’s social media use, chose to correct him and get a message across to him through humiliation on a video that was posted to the Internet.
The video raises questions on the appropriate style of regulating youth and internet security, especially in a day and age where youth’s online presence is becoming a growing concern in regards to safety and crime. Also, another notion is challenged; how much does public or private humiliation impact a child in regards to discipline? Does corporal punishment serve as an appropriate means to modifying or correcting behavior?
