Do you think this father took the whole “tough love” thing a little too far or do you agree with this type of discipline in certain situations? 

A Prince William County father is in trouble with the law after he posted a video of himself boxing his teenage son. The father said he was disciplining his child while teaching him how to defend himself at the same time. But is it tough discipline or is it abuse? It depends on who you ask.

The father, who identified himself as TaDigs Ditches on Facebook, told FOX 5 he was ordered on Thursday to turn himself into the Prince William County Sheriff’s Office after he posted the video, which showed his son bloodied after the sparring. TaDigs said they are a boxing family and it is “no one’s place to judge how he takes care of his business in his house.”

The video, which was posted to Facebook by the father, said he was disciplining his 17-year-old son for misbehaving in class. TaDigs mentions in the video, “He can walk out of class but call me so I’m on your side. All day went by he didn’t call – so now it’s discipline time because he didn’t do what I told him to do. He chooses to do what he wants to do.” Via: FOX5DC
