Boy pleads for his life as father attacks him with a coat hanger

Thai caption: "Daddy - please don't kill me!"

 

Daily News reported that a ten year old boy pleaded for his life as his 48 year old father attacked him with a coat hanger in Buriram in Thailand's north-east.

 

The boy had sold his free school milk to get 70 baht to buy firecrackers. 

 

This enraged "Than". 

 

On seeing the injuries - pictures of which were shown in the media - the local phu yai ban (village elder) reported the matter. 

 

The police have interviewed the father and are investigating further.

This act by the father surely is abuse. It goes beyond even strict authoritarian discipline. The damage caused by this kind of parental behavior can result in untold miseries in the boys future. I hope there is the possibility of family or community intervention that will lessen the boys chances of further abuse but unless there is a history of ever increasing violence inflicted on the boy by the father......the object of 

behavioral change must be on the father. If he cannot ameliorate his anger

then a safe environment for the boy will be the only option.

 

I wonder what the fathers' typical behaviors and values are? Has the young boy seen his father do stupid things and is thus learning to do thing which are stupid and lacking in common sense?

My father did the same to me and worse when I was that age. But I would never agree to having him "capped" as you suggest. The reason is that without a father it would at that time be very difficult to survive (probably somewhat similar where I grew up all those decades ago as it is in Thailand today). And besides, and this is the terrible thing about having an abusive parent, having a father that leaves marks on you is far better from the kid's point of view than not having a parent at all. Besides, if the cops or anyone else had capped my father, the ten year old or my ten-year-old self would blame himself.

 

Such matters require a lot more work than the knee-jerk reaction policy that you suggest. Don't get me wrong, fathers should not be allowed to flay their childen but there is a better way of dealing with the problem than the "hang 'em high" approach.

Flaying, not hanging perhaps?

The poor lad has been abused, beaten and possibly mentally scarred too....but he has not been flayed.

In Canada, if a parent did that to their child, they would be in jail.

  Also in Canada, I see many spoiled teens who should have felt

some discipline when they were young, but now they are delinquents on the

streets, bumming for money at street corners. Did the kid really need firecrackers?

Just a question.

Geezer

A clip around the ear,would have been enough,

looks like the father is taking his anger over

something else out on the kid,as that is excessive.

A small punishment would have been deserved - selling his school milk to buy firecrackers is plain naughty, but not a savage attack. Father probably enraged at wasting his hard earned cash.

That's the truth... this isn't about milk or firecrackers, the fathers got some serious issues !
