Tough Love or Child Abuse? Mum Forces Son to Walk Naked in Public as Punishment for Stealing

A mother from the Northern Vietnamese city of Hai Phong has been reprimanded by police for forcing her 12-year-old to walk stark naked in public as punishment for stealing VND 500,000 from his grandma to play online games.

Tuoi Tre newspaper reports that the young boy was spotted walking in tears without clothes on Tran Nguyen Han Street around on Monday afternoon while his mum insulted and whipped him.

Neighbours who were at the scene reportedly asked her to stop, but she declined. They then called the authorities.

When interrogated, the mother said, ”I don’t want him like that. But this could be the only way to make him feel ashamed so that he won’t steal money anymore.”

What do you think?
