There is a right and a wrong way to punish a child for misbehaving. But no matter how bad their behavior, there should never be a reason to physically abuse a child. Unfortunately, one family from Maryland didn’t seem to feel this way. Nine-year-old Jack Garcia was beaten to death after he reportedly ate a piece of cake that didn’t belong to him. As punishment, his mother’s boyfriend had him handcuffed to a chair, and beat him until he was unconscious.
