A TikToker has gone viral on the internet for all the wrong reasons as she openly talked about how she hit her disabled toddler to teach him discipline. Ruthy Hunter’s kid is just six-month-old about whom she said in a video, “I’ll continue to spank him until he’s an adult because he has to learn discipline.”

As per reports, Hunter is a young mother with a following of 32,200 on TikTok. After facing criticism online, she has apparently changed her account settings to private. Though not much information is available about her because of her privacy settings, one video of her talking about “spanking” and “popping” the toddler has been heavily slammed. People have called her out for being a bad parent.

That particular video of her was re-shared by another TikTok creator, Danesh, which attracted a lot of negative comments for the mother. Danesh also shared the video on his Twitter account, where he wrote: “TW: Ruthy Hunter abuses her 6 month old disabled baby. Make her famous, she needs that baby taken away.” 



 

 

The social media video showed Hunter addressing people “who are losing their minds over the fact that I pop my son.” She went on to claim that she does not hit the child regularly. She claimed to have popped him twice in his “entire life” and she had to do that because the toddler was “screaming and he was angry” and was “losing his temper.” “So I popped him. Popping is a second resort unless he’s older and he has lied or he’s been disobedient. Those are always immediate spanking,” she stated.

Hunter also mentioned, “I’ll continue to spank him until he’s an adult because he has to learn discipline and boundaries and rules even if he’s disabled,” before adding “disabled kids do not get special privileges” because of their condition and they need to learn how to behave. She then quoted the bible and said that there is mention of “spanking” in the holy book, before saying, “those who spare the rod hate their sons.”

Her method of parenting has enraged a number of people online. A TikTok user commented, “She’s crazy, a 6-month-old cannot be disobedient. They don’t understand anything but their needs at that which is normal for a 6 months old.” “‘Only like twice in his whole life’, ma’am his whole life is only 6 months?” another wrote. “6 months old? Crying is how they communicate. Some people don’t deserve kids,” the third one added.

Twitter was also filled with angry reactions. A person tweeted, “If a 6 month old baby is crying, they need something. Food, attention, sleep, comfort, diaper changed, they NEED something. You don't hit a baby for crying.” The second one stated, “6 months old…SIIIIIXXXXX MOOOONTHS OOOOOOLD!!!!! It’s a baby!!!!!! Ffs!!!! A baby!!!! No control over emotions or reactions! Jfc!” “Hitting a baby who is almost 6 months old?  Unconscionable. My guess is the mom has little control over her reactions. This baby deserves to be safe from physical attack,” a tweet added.
