    After reading the article you linked to, it seems like this might not be as cut and dry as I initially thought. If true, that is indeed one messed up mother.

    Unless it was the hamster who was doing the kid's failing work, completely unjustified. :rolleyes: Anyone know a good therapist for this "family"?

    Let's hope this kid hasn't been watching any commercials by KIA.

    But seriously. The mother needs a mental evaluation.

    Like most stories of this type, I doubt we know anything close to the real story

    But it's more fun to watch people jump to conclusions on an Internet board. :D

    Or the Ford Ka for that matter.

    And yeah, if this is true as written, mom's a sicko.

    The way we coddle those "poor kids" today. Back in my day we'd smack the kid with the hammer.

    You know what I always say: beatings will continue until morale improves

    No...it was a commercial from Ford. Of course it's CGI.

    Hopefully that mom never gets the kid back, though. Certain people definitely shouldn't be parents.

    I have to say, I can't think any good will ever come of bludgeoning rodents with a hammer...unless perhaps it's Monty Python's Mouse Organ.

    The article makes the story sound pretty complex though - we don't really know what actually happened, apart from the fact that the kid has scratches on his neck and somebody killed a hamster...

    As many have stated, if the story turns out to be true then it is severe emotional abuse and this family needs some help.

    However, due to my extensive history with playing Clue and watching crime dramas on TV, I'm willing to bet it's a frame job and the family cat is quite proud of himself at this moment.

    Let us just hope the highly traumatized child hasn't any more pets. What's next; the kitten, the puppy, daddy. What a horrible person.

    What ever happened to being grounded, no tv, internet, phone until homework is done and checked by either parent. How about getting a tutor for the child if he is really having a difficult time with school.

    Making a child kill a pet with a hammer is just sick.

    Okay, point taken. But it's not so much what kind of animal you're dealing with here, it's more the fact that a Mom had her son hammer his pet to death with a hammer. This could have been a cockroach, but if the kid had an emotional attachment to it, I'd still think what the Mom did was pretty sick.
