    That is terrible. I can't believe that his wife said all he did was slap him. If you are going to punish a child it certainly should not be by striking him in the face like that. Disgusting. Lock him up and throw away the key.

    This just sickens me. What the father did is horrible. I can only imagine what goes on in private. As for the mother, I would bet money that she fears for her safety as well and is powerless to do anything :-(

    Absolutely sickening! But, at a far lower threshold of abuse, how many times have you seen grim-faced parents (usually, but not exclusively Dads) dragging their miserable, hot and tired brood around the parks, insisting that they WILL have a great time, given the cost etc.....

    Three!!! He is THREE!! Not that this behavior is acceptable at ANY age, but what on Earth could a THREE year old in a stroller be doing to his brothers that was so awful???? Sadly, these incidents happen all too often...and furthermore, shame shame on that mother for not standing up for her CHILD.

    I was surprised to read that the parents wouldn't let the authorities take the child to hospital, I would have thought they would have automatically removed him I suppose it's different because they are on holiday.

    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    In NYC that child would have been brought to the hospital and removed from the parents and placed into Children Services pending an investigation. The father would have been immediately arrested and charged with Assault and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Charging the mother would be difficult but it's a possibility that she could be charged with the endangering charge as well.

    I'm surprised a bit too, that the child wasn't brought to the hospital regardless of parental consent. I wonder if it had something to do with their citizenship? I have no idea.
