She Takes Out Her Mother's Day Jealousy By Beating Her Six-Year-Old

Mother's Day is supposed to be a day for celebrating someone who is the most important person in your life. For some kids, this includes grandmothers, aunts or other female family members who have made an impact, so it’s unusual for children to want to pay tribute to someone else on Mother’s Day. One little boy from South Carolina made something for his grandmother, but his own mother couldn’t stand to have the spotlight stolen.

Shontrell Murphy of Spartanburg was arrested for child cruelty after she was outraged at her 6-year-old son for making his grandmother a Mother's Day card instead of her. The woman hit the son several times on the head, then grabbed the card and tore it up.

Police arrived and found the grandmother there with the two grandchildren. The grandmother reported the abuse to the police. The kids were crying and seemed traumatized by the incident. They told police that their mother often hits them and that they're afraid of her.

Police found the torn up shreds of the child's Mother's Day card for his grandmother. The boy's older sister explained that Murphey became enraged that the boy only made a card for his grandmother and not for her. She hit him on the front, back and side of his head before destroying the card.

The boy was sent to the hospital for an examination and was later released. There are no reports on his condition, but it doesn’t appear as though he sustained any harm from the abuse.

Murphey was arrested for cruelty to children. The 30-year-old woman told police that she did smack her son on the head, and it was something that she commonly does, but not in a violent way. According to a police report, Murphy said she 'does not believe it was in a hard or violent manner.'

Unfortunately, not all mothers live up to the important role, and kids can be well aware of this even at a young age. With the way Murphy allegedly treats her children, it comes as no surprise that she wasn’t the first mother figure that her young son thought of when the special day rolled around. Maybe instead of flying off the handle when her son shows admiration and affection for his grandmother, Murphy should start taking notes.
