There is a social media trend lately where parents shame their kids publicly on social media when they mess up. They will destroy their video games or make them stand on a street corner with a sign that says “look how terrible I am.” And of course, they film it and put it on social media because, what else would you do? Of course, this never even allows room for the idea that maybe the parents screwed up long before the viral boiling point.
As a society, we post them as click bait and laugh at others misfortunes.
It’s time for me to discipline my kid the tough way! Why? I don’t play that!

Well Wayman Gresham took to Facebook to post a video blasting parents for publicly shaming their children and suggesting the best way to discipline your child is through love. Having received more than 1.5 million views, Gresham has merited the support and praise of many.
How about that?
1. He didn’t embarrass his son for the sake of our anonymous enjoyment.
2. He put the terrible parents who create these videos on blast for being terrible parents to begin with.
3. He suggests that if your kid is really that terrible, you both may want to try Jesus Christ. A suggestion, if you will.
God Bless you, Wayman Gresham.
