Panting and sweating in the scorching heat, a little boy could hardly keep up with his mother, who seemed intent on teaching him a lesson. The internet, however, did not approve, going as far as to accuse her of traumatizing her son. 

Taking to her TikTok account, Katarina Rodriguez was unafraid to share a clip that she has since made private of what many deemed controversial parenting. In the video, she and her 5-year-old son ran in 104-degree heat together. 

While with him in the glaring sun, she explained that this was a repercussion for misbehaving in school. Rodriguez shared that the school told her that he was disruptive and noisy during learning hours.

With a tiny exception of a few individuals defending the mother, the comment section blasted Rodriguez for what they mainly saw as an incredibly ineffective and cruel parenting technique. 

The mother was in tears and said she felt as though she had been discriminated against.

One claimed that this said "punishment" would traumatize the child, while another commenter claiming to be a pediatrician stated that this was not beneficial. Another expressed that they felt sorry for her 5-year-old.

This mother then took to her account again, making a follow-up video, which she has also subsequently made private, responding to these comments. Rodriguez claimed that her strategy had worked, stating

"Not only did it get him a smiley face yesterday, it got him one today."

The mom made a huge emphasis on how the way she raises her child is not anyone else's business but hers. Rodriguez stated that they had tried numerous approaches, and this one seemed to work best for them.

Mothers are criticized for many aspects of parenting, from how they discipline their children to sometimes what they wear. This happened to 34-year-old mom Isabel Castro

The school staff barred her from entering a meeting at her son's school due to a claimed inappropriate outfit. This consisted of a white low neckline top and ripped jeans. 

The mother was in tears and said she felt as though she had been discriminated against. Whether one agrees or disagrees with these moms, it's no secret that parenting is a tough job, no matter the choices one makes.
