Something has definitely gone wrong in the world.
It looks likes everywhere one turns over the past few months, there is a disheartening case of Domestic Violence taking place.
Domestic violence (also calledd domestic abuse or family violence) is a pattern of behavior which involves violence or other abuse by one person against another.
It usually takes place in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation.
Domestic violence may be termed intimate partner violence when committed by a spouse or partner against the other spouse or partner.
It should be noted that domestic violence has become increasingly rampant among abusive parents and their children.
This was the brand of the disturbing phenomenon on display when an abusive mother beat her child viciously.
The internet has since gone wild with the release of the footage of the incident with many observers calling for justice to be done to the abusive mother.
The sickening incident took place in Bahia Blanca, Argentina when the mother got furious while she was searching for her tablet device.
The mother’s name has not been released to the general public due to fears of a backlash against her.
The abusive mother also has two other children who have since been removed from under her care.
According to Daily Mail, it was her eldest who recently turned three that she abused in such a vicious manner.
In the video, the child was lifted up by her hair and kicked in the back by her mother who goes on to accuse her of losing her tablet computer.
The video was filmed by an unknown witness in their home in the city of Bahia Blanca, in the eastern Argentina province of Buenos Aires.
In the beginning of the video, the child was being smacked repeatedly as she was being accused of stealing the tablet computer.
The woman is heard screaming at the toddler,
‘Why don’t you remember where you left the things?
‘Give me the tablet, you had it here over the table when I arrived here. Give it to me because I will kill you.’
The girl starts to sob and cowers, clearly terrified, as her mother continues the abusive attack.
The unnamed mother then first lifts the child by up by her hair and then kicks her hard in the back.
The video was uploaded to Facebook by the unknown witness where it immediately went viral.
Social Services have reportedly stepped into the family’s living situation.
The three-year-old along with her two younger siblings have since been removed from the home by authorities.
They have reportedly been placed under the care of social services while an investigation is launched.
It is not known if the mother has been arrested or charged over the abuse but she would definitely be left ruing her actions.
Investigations are still progressing into one of the most disheartening cases of domestic abuse seen in a long while.
It is not sure if that was the first time the Argentine resident was abusing one of her children.
