In September of last year, Texas mom, Elizabeth Escalona, glued her 2-year-old toddler to the wall after kicking, berating and beating her because of a potty training failure.
Going so far as even hitting the tiny toddler with a gallon of milk. Elizabeth Escalona is now facing life in prison and her day in court is fast approaching, September 7, 2012.
Apparently, the 2-year-old had a potty training accident (as all potty training toddlers do) and soiled herself. The toddler was taken to the hospital by her maternal grandmother, Escalonaâ€™s mother, who reported her daughter for abuse.
The 2-year-old was in a coma for 2 days after the incident. The toddler and her siblings were then removed from the custody of their mother, Ms. Escalona. She was taken into custody. Thank God for that.
Speaking of God, when Ms. Escalona was leaving the courthouse, her statement to the press was this, â€œOnly God can judge me. Thatâ€™s all I gotta say.â€ Iâ€™m pretty sure more than just God is judging your atrocious behavior Ms. Escalona, including your cellmates in prison. Itâ€™s going to be a long life sentence.
Iâ€™m not sure how all of you feel about spanking but I am sure all of you frown upon beating toddlers with gallons of milk and then gluing them to the wall until their hands bleed. This woman is obviously sick in the head and may have been beaten herself at some point in her life.
How else does one learn this sadistic behavior? My opinion: the cycle has got to stop. The best place for her is in jail, away from kids.
This is just one reason that I am against spanking children; some people are not emotionally equipped to handle dispensing this kind of discipline. I know there are some people in the world that can discipline their children with a small tap on the butt but I know there are a lot more who cannot.
Parentâ€™s need to employ the 10 second rule; think about it, count to ten, or just freaking walk away and breathe for a moment. If this could happen, we would have a lot less children suffering from shaken baby syndrome, toddlers getting glued to walls and beaten, and children who are abused.
What do you think the punishment for Elizabeth Escalonaâ€™s actions should be?
