Child Allegedly Beaten for Not Doing His Homework Quickly Enough
A Cincinnati woman allegedly beat her 5-year-old son for not doing his homework quickly enough.
According to WLWT, the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati, 27-year-old Bianca Anderson stands accused of whipping her son with a belt Aug. 25. The boy had just started kindergarten at Roll Hill Elementary.
A teacher at the school tells the station she noticed the boy was bruised, and upon closer examination, found massive bruises on his back.
The boy allegedly told the teacher his mother was responsible for what police reports call "severe bruises." Police tell the station the beatings apparently began because the boy was not doing his homework quickly enough.
Anderson told a judge Sept. 20 that she is working with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and voluntarily taking anger management classes.
WLWT reports she was released on her own recognizance.
