This Mother Reportedly Assaulted Her 6-Year-Old Son For The Most Ridiculous Reason Ever!
Don’t know if we have mentioned this ten million times yet, but we aren’t the biggest fans of bringing you the sadder stories around the sphere. But sometimes it just has to be done, guys. 

Feel free to miss it if you’re not in the mood though. There are much cheerier options to explore out there, we promise.

Via Vibe:

A South Carolina woman has been charged with cruelty to children for slapping her 6-year-old son for making his grandmother a Mother’s Day card and not her. Thirty-year-old Shontrell Murphy admitted to police she hit her son but “does not believe it was in a hard or violent manner.

The Spartanburg Police Department were called to a home last week responding to a disturbance. Upon arrival, authorities saw a grandmother standing between her daughter and her grandchildren. The grandmother told police her daughter slapped her son several times in the front, side and back of the head.

The police report states Murphy repeatedly slapped her son in the head after ripping up a Mother’s Day card that was intended for the boy’s grandmother. The child later admitted to police that his mother hits him and his sibling regularly and they’re scared of her.

The boy was then taken to the hospital for evaluation and later released.”
Hm.  That sounds like a pretty lame celebration for all involved. 

Also, maybe if your child didn’t make you a card, you can maybe take a look at your own parenting abilities instead of laying your hand on a six-year-old. And maybe talk it out with them?

If you are in need of some “lighter” Mother’s Day news, you can join us in sort-of celebrating the fact that La La and Carmelo managed to focus on their child (and not dragging up the details of their impending split) in honor of the event.
