Father Starts to Discipline His Child, Then Turns to Camera & Delivers Message to Parents Everywhere

Things take a sudden twist.

A father's message to other parents has taken the Internet by storm, amassing more than 5 million views on Facebook since being posted last week.

Arsenio Mcleod, 26, recorded a video which started with his son seated and him looking into the camera. The father said he was going to discipline his child on-camera, like many other videos which have recently gone viral.

Things then took a sudden twist.

Before disciplining his child on camera, Mcleod stopped, excused his son and proceeded to deliver a message to parents everywhere.

"I won't ever in my life, ever, humiliate my own DNA ... on his social media network," the 26-year-old said. "I've seen a lot of people do that and it actually made me cry."

"Humiliation can cause suicide and depression. C'mon, I'm 26 and I know better than that!" he added. "I do not respect that."

Mcleod continued to contend that parents should discipline their children in private using a variety of methods, but said that filming it and posting it online is a step too far.

"We live in a society now where people want to record how they discipline their child. What goes on at home, should stay at home," he concluded.
