The father, proud of his actions regarding his daughter, posted the photos of his 3-year-old on Facebook, explaining that because of his her behavior towards him and the girl’s mother, he sent his daughter to jail.
Juliano Parker from Corpus Christi, Texas, went on his Facebook page and explained;
“My daughter Aubrey’Ella has been fighting with my wife and I, disrespecting us in public, not listening and talking back a lot.
“Spankings don’t work no more. My daughter is used to spankings and nowadays you can’t spank kids how they did back in the day [because] they call that abuse.
“So today I told my daughter since you wanna be a bad girl, let me show you where the bad kids go. I turned my apartment into a jail. I took away her clothes, now she gets to wear my orange shirt.”
The conversion of his apartment into a jail included putting a mattress on the floor for the 3-year-old to sleep on. The little girl was also fed differently, eating meat and potatoes with water while her brother and sister enjoyed pizza and juice. Her punishment also involved cleaning up the front room and doing dishes.
“Giving her a taste of what it’s like to be in jail for not following the law,” Juliano said. And to those who disagreed with his parenting skills towards his 3-year-old, Juliano wrote. “Now ya’ll can say what ya’ll want but I’m breaking this bad behavior before it gets too out of control without spanking her.”
Based on the comments he received there were some who agreed and some that disagreed with his tactics.
“Don’t ever apologize for being a parent and how you choose to parent [because] she is truly blessed to have someone care enough to show her how to behave as a lady should, so keep up the good work,” The Daily News quoted one user wrote.
“Sad,” another commenter wrote. “That is a baby. Nothing cute or funny about this. Nor is it a good idea. Shameful. [Parenting] and training is more than spankings and punishment. People really need to take parenting classes.”
And another, “I doubt social services would find this funny but my God, what else can you do with these kids nowadays.”
Juliano later removed the post from Facebook after many comments, saying that he didn’t expect the post to go viral.
“I really [regret] posting that pic of my daughter on social media like that I admit it was wrong didn’t think it was gonna go viral smh God knows my heart. My daughter is a good girl just been acting out lately and I was just trying to show her with bad behavior comes consequence. Now my daughter all over the internet for being bad kid but in reality she just acting out for attention.
“So I been just showing her love and being extra nice but not letting her walk all over me just let trying to drive out all that bad behavior with love just like MLK say hate can’t drive out hate or in my case anger can’t drive out anger but love can so my advice to all the parents who shared my post love you kids but don’t let them walk all over you just like the OG from my church told me be consist with how you discipline you kids and after a while they know you mean business but just be patient with kids . Just as God gives us Grace.”
