There have been plenty of negative reactions to kids in videos like this one. These two boys out of Romania have been lifting weights since they were two. Their father has them on a very structured workout routine which is partnered with what is, I’m sure, a very strict diet and daily schedule.
His military style parenting raises two questions:
One – Is this how they do things in Europe? (With all of our over-weight children here in the US, they probably think we’re pigs.)
and Two – Is this good parenting? Sure, the kids are learning structure and discipline, but with the boy’s still growing bones and developing muscles, what sort of long term effects would this have on their little bodies?
Watch the video, and let me know what you think?
