Dad calls out parents who have publicly shamed their kids online

Wayman Gresham is calling out all of the parents who are publicly punishing and embarrassing their kids online.

The Florida dad posted his own video last week, a parody of the “kid-shaming” videos. Like most of those videos circulating on the Web, Gresham starts out by saying he’s going to “teach his son a lesson” by giving his son a “bald head, messed up haircut.”

But then Gresham turns the tables and asks his son to get up and hug him. Then Gresham calls out all the moms and dads who have publicly shamed their kids online.
 
“Good parenting starts before he even gets to the point of being out of control. … 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,” Gresham says in the video.

Gresham says parents who have resorted to public shaming are a bad example and that parenting doesn’t have to be so extreme.

The video has gone viral, with more than 18 million views on Facebook to date.

Gresham later posted on Facebook, “I am not against discipline! I am against public humiliation!”
