I love facebook, and for the majority of the time I enjoy, but like all thing it has its downside. Mainly what people comment.
An example. a friend shared a video of a mother trying to deal with a child. The child was autistic, although at the time the video this originally posted this was not known.
The child was in a full on meltdown and the title was spare the rod spoil the child when the original person who shared the video was informed the child was autistic he did issue an apology (although why the hell he was judging the parent before knowing any facts is beyond me)
However even with the apology, people were still on there, talking about not just spanking the child, but whipping his arse, beating him will teach him a lesson. In my day this would never have happened.
For a few of them, I went on their profiles, one of those people was a care worker. If they think a child should be whipped, then I feel for the people they care for. Another one was a nurse *jaw dropped*
I am not talking about giving their point of view. I am talking about saying that beating a child for having a meltdown was acceptable. On top of that an autistic child having a meltdown, is very different from misbehaving and parents learn to tell the difference, and use their judgement of knowing their child the best to decide the best way to deal with the child.
But it did make me wonder about these people who say those type of things. It would be so easy to screenshot their remarks and for 7 out of the 10 I checked, let their employer know this was their view.
Not only were they, in my opinion, a vile human being, they were also bringing their work into disrepute. Now adays so much is done online, a quick google search can bring up the very best and worse of a company.
