A mother has sparked a fierce debate online after she revealed that she smacks her children when they don’t listen to her.
Brittney Coble took to TikTok and explained that she has five children aged 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10.
But she has sparked an uproar on the social media platform as many parents did not like the way she treats her kids.
“So I’ve seen a trend on TikTok where mums are talking about things they do with their kids that most of parents wouldn’t agree with, and considering most TikTok mums hate me already, I thought why not?” the mother-of-five said.
“’One, as you can already guess, is I whop my kids.
“I always give them a verbal warning, I don’t always expect them to listen the first time I ask, but if I have to ask two or three times and I’ve already explained what you need to do and you’re just blatantly ignoring me, you’re gonna get your a** whopped.
“’That’s just the way it is.”
Brittney also said that she gives her kids some chores to do.
“The two and four-year-old get a little distracted but I give them little chores […] and I kind of just redirect them if they get a little sidetracked.
“But my older kids – they have big-kid chores. They scrub the toilet, take the trash out, do the dishes – they contribute.
“And lastly, I am raising my boys as boys and my girl as a girl – no questions asked.”
Many parents were not happy with her parenting style, with one parent commenting: “Please stop hitting your children.”
Another wrote: “Abuse will not teach children respect, it will teach them fear.”
A third said: “So, you don’t know how to properly teach your kids and instil wisdom in them without using violence. nice.”
Someone else added: “There are ways to receive respect from other human beings without hurting them.”
Others supported her approach, with one saying: “Omg finally a parent that actually parents.”
Another wrote: “Yasss queen!! My kids are 3 nearly 4 (boy), 1 nearly 2 (girl) and a little 6-month-old. The older two have chores when baby walks she will too.”
