I have thick skin when it comes to most subjects. I don’t rush in and make accusations or place judgment on people because there are two sides to every story. This is different and it’s graphic so viewer discretion is advised…
DaddyoFive is a Youtuber. I’ve never heard of him, I’m not subscribed to him, and I don’t personally know him. All of the information that I have is from multiple third parties and from what I’ve seen myself in his videos on Youtube.
Mike Martin (DaddyoFive) runs a Youtube channel that’s centered on pulling pranks on his children… well… a child in particular. Every video that I’ve watch has had only one victim and it’s the smallest child in the house. Cody. This child is put through some really stressful situations in every Youtube video while his parents laugh, and demean him. His older stepbrother consistently bullies him, his mother is always yelling at him, and his father abuses him, but most of the time it’s really subtle, like a slight jab in the arm. I’ve seen this young boy with bruises on his arms, and in tears in multiple videos.
Since this story has spread throughout social media some major news outlets have caught wind of the story and reported on it. Since everyone is questioning the parents of little Cody they’ve released a video defending themselves. They said that everything they do is fake and that they love their children. It’s only pranks… right? Right? I don’t think so. You’ve changed your story too many times for me to believe a single word you say. First everyone’s just hating, then your videos are slightly over exaggerated, and now everything is fake? Pick one story and stick to it or shut your mouth because everything you say sounds like a big lie. You’re covering your own ass because you (and your wife) like to abuse your youngest child.
Even if (and that’s a big IF) this is all scripted and Cody is in on it it’s still abuse. You can’t physically harm a child. It’s against the law and you can lose your child, and be arrested for it. Punching your kid in the arm, letting your stepson pick him up and slam him on his arm, and publicly humiliating him is child abuse dude. How do you not know this? I have four children and I would never do any of the shit that I’ve seen you do to your son. You go out of your way to hurt that child and it’s hard to watch. It’s really hard to watch a kid crying out in pain after being slammed, punched, and thrown into a bookshelf. I’m trying really hard to remain objective right now, but it’s really hard.
You’re a parent. You’re supposed to protect your kids from harm not cause it. Kids will test your patience (I would be lying if I said my kids didn’t test mine.), but that’s what kids do. Kids are going to misbehave and get on your nerves. Your videos are disgusting and hard to watch. I have no idea why Youtube let this guy monetize this shit and make money off of it.
This situation is bad. I feel bad for the kids in that household because it’s not safe for them. I really hope something is done about all of this and I’m using my small blog here to help spread information about it. Abuse is something that no kid should ever experience, but the truth is many of them do.
What do you think of this? Am I out of line? Do you agree?
I’m having some issues with my PC and right now it’s looking like it’s going to need some minor repairs. I don’t know if that’s going to impact my posting here yet, but if I’m not around for a little while after this post that’s why :).
