Florida flexes its parenting game once again as this Instagram video captured a father giving his 6-year-old son a boot down a skateboarding half-pipe.
The reluctant child was given a nudge by his impatient father, but was unhurt after getting some tough love, Florida style.
Marcus Crossland was removed from the park shortly after being caught on Instagram
“Unfortunately, parents get so enthusiastic about their kids and their abilities in skateboarding, or baseball, or football, or whatever, and sometimes they take it a little too far,” the skate park director, Martin Ramos, told First Coast News.
According to First Coast News, the Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating possible charges against Crossland.
Crossland may not have been able to show his son how to drop in properly, but he has guaranteed a future full of therapy bills for his son.
