A father in Shanghai, China forced her little daughter to do homework while kneeling in 40°C [104°F] Weather.
On an extremely hot day, at a factory at No.23, 185 Lane of Hongxing Road, an 8-year-old girl was seen kneeling on the ground doing her homework.
According to the old gatekeeper of the factory, he had seen a girl doing her homework on her knees. He believed that the surface temperature of the ground was roughly 50 °C.
The girl was bathed in sweat since she had been kneeling for almost 3 hours. A woman who could not bear the sight tried to get the girl up on her knees. However, she told the woman that she is not allowed to stand up without the permission of her father. Nearby residents corroborated that it was due to her poor grades in school and an unfinished homework.
A reporter asked the father about his ways of punishing and his response was: “My family’s business is not your concern. Off you go, go do what you ought to do.” He firmly believed that her daughter could stand the scorching sun.
