File this under, “the punishment doesn’t fit the crime.” Strike that; file this under, “You clearly should not be a parent unless your job is to raise a serial killer.”
38-year-old mom Lynn Middlebrooks Geter was arrested after she forced her 12-year-old son to kill his pet hamster with a hammer as a punishment for earning a bad grade.
After the boy told his teacher, the teacher reported the incident to authorities and now the mother sits behind bars for animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery.
I’m going to assume none of you have ever resorted to Draconian measures like this mom, but have you ever regretted a punishment you gave your kid?
