When you read the story behind its still hard to decide,if it helps the childs health but im not a doctor.Plus no need to video it,the father could have done it in private say garden if it was just for childs health in his opinion,so buy videoing it and posting online it becomes cruelty in my mind

If the father's claim is to make the kid stronger, there are better ways to do so. I don't know if it's abuse, exactly. It's more along the lines of trying to do what's best for your kid, but in a somewhat stupid manner. Although I love how on Chinasmack, somebody mentioned Sparta...

I don't see any problem with it. City folks nowadays have become too soft and spoilt: Where I grew up we'd run around naked in the snow like that just for fun.

City boys in their twenties now cry because they broke a nail and ruined their manicure. Imagine if those same people had to go through the great depression followed by WWII. We'd all be speaking Hitlerese right now.

I think this is just sadistic, especially that he is filming it, just like the practice we have seen emerge back home where parents are duckt taping their kids and posting it on facebook.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
