Mother Charged After Making Her Child Walk Home As Punishment

Posted: Updated:

A mother in Texas got so fed up with her kid in the car that she made him get out and walk home.

Police say the mom made her 10-year-old son walk alone, along a major highway at 8:30 at night. The kid walked for a least ten minutes in the dark, before other drivers started calling police.

Most parents say that a highway is not the place to teach your kids a lesson.

"As a parent I understand you get pushed to your limit and we do react. But at the end of the day, kids are kids and I love them, and I would never endanger my kids," said a parent.

"I would never do that. I would deal with that when I got home," said another parent.

The mother was charged with abandonment and endangering a child. She is being held on $7,500 dollars bond.
