I hate it when my children fight and I hate it even more when they hit each other. I know all siblings fight, but I've never liked it and I never will. And I definitely would NEVER, ever encourage them to get into a fistfight. That's why I was enraged after I watch a very disturbing video of two toddler girls beating the crap out of each other while the mother of one of them not only eggs them on, but also gets the whole fist fight on video.

If you haven't seen it yet, I must warn you: it's very difficult to watch. Besides the wailing, which is already heartbreaking enough, it's not easy to watch a little girl in diapers beating up another little girl and none of the adults (at least two can be heard in the background) doing anything about it. What is the world coming to?

The mom who got the video of the fight was stupid enough to post it to her Facebook page. Why would she do that? I guess she wanted to tell the world that she's a horrible mother who thinks it's funny to teach two toddlers that violence and cruelty are perfectly acceptable. WTH?

I'm so happy that an acquaintance of this woman felt it necessary to share the video with a local television station and that they in turn sent it to Missouri's Department of Social Services. That's one gutsy woman right there, but I'm with her when she says that "it's just sickening and I feel like there should be some kind of criminal action taken."

Although that remains to be seen, anyone who watches the troubling video would agree that this woman needs some parenting lessons. To be honest, what worries me the most is that if she's capable of egging two little kids to fight, what else is she capable of doing to them?

What do you think of this video? How should this mother be punished? Let us know what you think by leaving us a comment.
