Mother Films Her Kids Fighting and Posts it on Facebook

Facebook has done a great deal in highlighting examples of horrible parenting to the rest of the world. Incidents which were once conducted behind closed doors are going public.

The mother who thought that filming her children having a fist fight made for great entertainment has a lot of answering to do:

Video posted to Facebook is causing outrage in many circles, and Missouri’s Department of Social Services may be investigating it.  The images show a fist fight between two small children, with the mother of one of the kids egging them on, even offering instructions to the tiny combatants. 

“Got some action! Got some action!” the woman can be heard yelling as she shoots the video.  “Y’all better ball up some fists!”

The video was posted to Facebook on Sunday.  An acquaintance of the mother in question alerted FOX 2.  She asked not be identified, but spoke in an interview Tuesday.

“It’s just sickening and I feel like there should be some kind of criminal action taken,” she told us.  “I couldn’t even watch the whole video.  I had to stop it and look again. It was sad.”

She says the urging of the mother was as disturbing as the pictures themselves.

“Ball up your fist.  It’s like she’s training her before she starts school or something.  It’s sad because today’s society in the black community its really sickening that these kids are learning how to fight, get guns and stuff, and it shouldn’t be going on.”

“Wow,” was the initial response of St. Louis child psychologist Russell Hyken after we showed him the images. 

“That’s pretty overwhelming.  Those are small children that really don’t even understand what is going on. I mean one child is screaming and the other child continues to go after her.  I mean what is going on here?”
