Photos of a father disciplining his daughter at a Texas Walmart has divided the internet!
Erika Burch noticed the young girl walking next to her father, who had wrapped her hair around the handle of his shopping cart.
“She’s saying, ‘Please stop, you’re hurting me, please stop, I promise I won’t do it again, please stop,'” Burch told CBS’ KHOU.
Burch was told to mind her own business by the father after she tried to assist the girl. That’s when she decided to snap a few photos, which she later shared on Facebook.
The concerned mother also contacted the Cleveland Police Department, who told her that the father had a right to discipline his child. The girl would have had to sustain an injury in order for the incident to be considered child abuse.
On Facebook, Erika’s original post about the incident has been shared over 200,000 times and “liked” over 30,000 times.
