A video posted by a netizen went viral for being a bad example of parenting. The netizen, a certain Kerbz Alvarez, shared that they were in San Juan, Batangas, when they spotted a mother playing with her child by putting him on the roof of the sidecar of a moving tricycle. He took a video of the incident and posted it on Facebook in an effort to warn other parents not to do the same.
In his post, the netizen wrote:
“Ito pong video na ito ay kuha sa san juan batangas, kinuhanan namin ng video yung mag ina na kitang kita pinag lalaroan yung kanyang anak at tuwang tuwa pa siya na hindi niya alam ang pede mangyari sa bata, sa konting pag kaka mali ay pede mahulog ung bata sa tricycle, wag tularan, tsk”
The mother initially made her son sit on the roof of the sidecar, but there were moments when she let go of him and merely rested her hand beside him. The kid then tried to stand up a couple of times, which the mother did not seem to mind. Instead, she held on to his shorts to prevent him from accidentally falling.
Things became even more dangerous when the tricycle encroached the opposite lane to overtake a few vehicles. The kid could have been thrown off, yet the mother still didn’t seemed too worried. Instead, she kept allowing the youngster to stay on the roof thinking it was safe.
Watch this viral clip and decide for yourself if the mother was in the wrong:

Netizens were not very happy with how the mother was raising her child. Some of them suggested that legal action should be filed against the mother, presumably for negligence. Others said she might accidentally let go of the child and he might fall off the moving vehicle. Some also said the mother was not thinking of the possible consequences of her actions, which makes her negligent.
As of writing, the video has been viewed over 400,000 times and shared close to 6,000 times.
