Bad Parenting or Life Lesson? You Decide.



*** Edit: New vid is working, if it stops, theres some stills HERE.
You just watched a cellphone video of 2 teen-aged girls fighting (LOL at the girl with her hands up like shes in a boxing ring) Okay but in all seriousness, apparently one of the girls moms was in the sidelines cheering for her daughter (um what lol...) and she ended up getting arrested for child abuse. What do you guys think? Would you encourage your child to fight (if it was a good enough reason)? I was a teenage girl once, I got into my share of fights, sometimes it's just unavoidable (obviously in the video it was planned), girls are b*tches though and I have definitely gotten to the point where I needed to kick some a*s (In self defense of course) I think it's necessary for girls to stand their ground and not let bullies push them around, but fighting for no reason is out of the question. 
We aren't sure why these two girls are even fighting so it's hard to say I guess but I can tell you a personal story. My sister told me this after I got into a fight in high school. Apparently when she was in high school (shes a good 15 years older than me) some girl was bullying her and my dad finally said enough is enough, you can't let people treat you like that. So he took my sister and dropped her off at a local hangout where apparently the bully was and he told my sister to kick the sh*t out of her. I guess that's how it was done back then? My dad never got arrested for child abuse (my sister won the fight too) and it wasn't all over the news like this is, just sayin'.... I would love some feedback on this one though :)

Here is the blurb from the site I read this on:

"A Florida mother who stood on the sidelines cheering on her daughter during a planned high school fight between the teen and another girl was arrested today for child abuse.

According to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office affidavit, April Newcomb, 39, can be seen on multiple YouTube videos “encouraging” her daughter “to physically fight” with the other girl. The videos, one of which can be viewed below, were filmed by attendees of the fight, which occurred in a vacant field near Palmetto High School." 

Now I don't think I would 'cheer on' my child but I sure as hell wouldn't want them to back down.

  5. I'm a firm believer that parents should let children fight their own battles and choose their own weapons. Pistols or swords. Like the old days.

  7. What a awesome mom! Kinda. Well There might be more into this then what we saw. I dunno.. I'd say aswell its more a life lesson. That kid looks to be big enough already. I'd understand when she'd be 12 or 14 but she is over 16-17
