School Officials Horrified When 5-Year-Old Tells Them What Mom Did To Him

No one could blame a mother for wanting her young child to start off in school on the right foot. When your child goes off to kindergarten, you want to make sure he adjusts well, is learning and is behaving properly. Sometimes, this can call for some positive or negative reinforcement. Sometimes, parents try punishment to get a child to behave and do their homework. One mother in Texas, however, took discipline entirely too far.

A 27-year-old Houston woman has been charged with injuring her son. The 5-year-old boy 'got in trouble at school', according to the young mother, so she beat him with a belt and used a taser on him.

Whitney White was initially investigated for how she was treating her son, now six. He had been spotted with bruises on his face, welts on his body, and was once seen with a cut on his arm.

The young mother told police that she caused his bruises by slapping him in the face. White admits, however, that she may have hit him too hard with a belt. She was frustrated with her son for getting in trouble in kindergarten and because he refused to do homework.

The mother said when she told her son to study, he said 'no'. She took this as a 'sign of disrespect' and tasered him.

"I was five years old when the defendant tased me on my arm because I got in trouble at school. From zero to 10, it hurt 10," said the child, according to court documents.

White reported that she had been going to anger management classes, and they told parents not to tase their children. Unfortunately, the mother complained that they didn't tell her what else she could do.

White confessed to the abuse, but she was still confused. The frustrated mother hadn’t figured out how to get her son to achieve the goals she set for him.

"When I tried to talk with him about it, he didn't want to discuss it, and he was running away from me," White said to ABC 13. "I picked it up and tased him with it."

The child was removed from White's custody and placed in the temporary custody of Child Protective Services. She also has a two-week-old baby who is still breastfeeding. Because of this, the mother is allowed more supervised contact with the baby.

This is the kind of situation that makes you wonder why people don’t have to take a parenting test in order to be sent home with their children. After all, you need to take a citizenship test to become a citizen. You need to take a driver’s exam to get a license. Even hair stylists have to put in thousands of hours of work just to be approved in hair styling. The fact that this young mom couldn’t come up with a better disciplinary action than tasering is very scary.
