    Child abuse?

    ...I just learned that someone "punishes" their 4 year old when she is bad- by making her watch Hitler Documentaries on the History channel. Does this sound like abuse to you? It seems awefully inappropriate to me. The parent is the father.

    Given all of the relevant facts(you haven't offered them), what would a group of 10 fathers say?

    It sounds weird, but with no frame of reference I can't offer an opinion. Is the kid torturing small animals? We have zero information.

    Just having to watch the History Channel would seem like punishment enough to me. Don't sound much like abuse to me though, long as he is not locking her in the closet or beating the shit out of her she might learn that life sux and then ya die. Make the best of it. As for me, I keep my nose outta what other people do to raise their kids. Lot of people make up shit to rat people out about as it is.

    Abuse? Don't think so. Now if she had to watch our emperor, that would be a totally different story.

    If nothing else, it is odd behavior. The father should be watched closely.
