Parenting isn't an easy task. To be able to strike the right balance between being too strict and too lenient isn't as easy as one might imagine. On the one hand, some parents are too lenient with their children, and they end up not disciplining their children at all. And on the contrary, some parents are seen to be too strict on their kids, ultimately crossing a line to become horrific people.

Brenda and Marc Marshall fall into the latter category. Punishments are required at times to teach children lessons, but there's a way to do it. Torturing children in the name of disciplining is truly inhuman, and if we think about it, it's better for parents to be too lenient than be horrifyingly strict. And after reading this story, you'll agree with us on this as well. Check it out!
