Unruly boy repeatedly kicks mother (Video)

PETALING JAYA: A video of a nine-year-old boy repeatedly kicking his mother has gone viral, drawing the ire of netizens.

The incident took place at a waiting room in a hospital at Guangzhou City, China when the boy was playing games on a mobile phone.

It is learned that the mother of the boy had requested her device back, urging him to stop playing games.

The boy then reacted in the most unruliest of manners by launching into repeated kicks aimed at his mother.

A person in the middle, reported to be the grandmother of the boy tried to intervene, in an attempt to shield her daughter whilst trying to stop him.

Her efforts were in vain as the boy continued the onslaught.

Although netizens were united in condemning the boy, sympathy appeared to be in short supply for the mother, as many felt the incident could have been avoided if the parents weren't too lenient on the boy.
