A Chinese father has drawn widespread criticism and consternation for crucifying his 10-year-old son for several hours, apparently because he refused to do his homework.
The unnamed father tied his son to a makeshift cross and made him kneel in front of his shop in public for
several hours, reportedly in the hope that the humiliation would make him more focused on his studies.
after a concerned neighbor took a picture of the boy and posted it online.
The father defended himself, saying that the incident “was nothing serious” and that it was “just a joke.”
