A father attempting to teach his young son how to skateboard was banned from the park after a video showed the man shoving the boy off the ramp.
According to an article in ABC, when asked why he pushed his son by one of the kids who witnessed the incident, the Florida dad replied "because he needs to learn."
The skatepark footage has since gone viral, resulting in an investigation by The Florida Department of Children and Families. And something tells us the boy is not the one with learning to do.
“It kind of hits right here when you are a parent to see someone do that to a kid,” said another dad at the Jacksonville park, TJ Smith. “That is somebody who got way too aggressive.”
Though the boy, said to be around six, thankfully wasn't injured during the fall, the park operator advised the kid's dad not to "come back for a while."
Do you think being filmed will make parents more accountable for their public 'fails'?
This was one the biggest parenting fails to hit the headlines.
