There are so many videos online now where parents are embarrassing or shaming their kids in public as a way to reach out to them or make money on viral videos.
Not Wayman Gresham.
Gresham posted a video to Facebook, where he announced that he was going to cut his son’s hair due to bad behavior. But he didn’t follow through on the stunt; instead, he gave his son a hug before launching into a speech against public shaming.
“There’s no way in the world I would embarrass my son like that,” he said. “It doesn’t take all of that. Good parenting starts before he even gets to the point of being out of control. Good parenting is getting up in the middle of the night, getting up in the middle of the night and praying for your child.
Good parenting is letting your child know that you love them regardless of what they are and who they are and showing them the way by example. Not one time on this video have you heard me use profanity.
Not one time on this video have you heard me put my son down. What’s important is that you learn to know Jesus Christ, and when you learn to know Jesus Christ, he will show you how to handle your kid.”
Thousands of people support Gresham’s comments and are praising his parenting. Since it was posted to Facebook on May 27th, the video has been liked more than 275 thousand times, has more than 500 thousand shares and has racked up 19 million views and counting.
