A father is being criticized after uploading a video (below) showing himself boxing with his 17-year-old son to discipline him for leaving school early. The unique form of punishment appeared to leave the teen beaten and covered in blood.
The unnamed father opens his video talking to the camera, explaining that his son had been skipping school.
"Granted, I know teachers can be f***ed up so I let him know he can walk out of class, but call me so I'm on your side," the man says in the video. "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."
The father says he decided to fight his son as a form of discipline because it will also teach him to defend himself.
The video then goes on to show the father and son boxing, with the son unable to get a punch in while his father continuously throws punches at him.
The teen gasps as his father hits him and says: "You don't worry about blood. They don't see this at school do they."
After the fight, the teen washes the blood off his face and the father speaks to the camera once again.
"That's how you discipline a teenager," he says. " ... Give them a chance to shoot back. Let him shoot how he feels. He feel like he want to cut up at school - he know the consequences. So he deal with me when he get home. And that's what it is - teenage discipline 101. And that wasn't even the first round."
The teenager is seen at the end of the clip crying with his shirt covered in blood.
