Mom Accused of Locking Daughter in Closet for 6 Hours Locked Up

carries-mom_150.jpg
A Costa Mesa mom accused of hitting her daughter three times with a stick and locking the 13-year-old in a closet for six hours over bad grades found herself on an extended time out.

In Orange County Jail.

Someone concerned about the abuse alleged to have happened Oct. 29 reportedly contacted Costa Mesa police, who arrested the mother within a couple hours.

The unidentified 32-year-old pleaded not guilty Nov. 1 to a misdemeanor count of child abuse and is due back in court Dec. 29, reports the Daily Pilot, which adds the lady is free on bail after spending a weekend behind bars.

Her daughter was taken to Orangewood Children & Family Center.

We can all agree child abuse is awful, and those guilty of it deserve everything coming to them. But does anyone else wonder how the girl's grades have been since?

To answer your question, after that abuse, the girl's grades have probably gone down further.

Who trhe heII cares how her grades are now...or ever. What if you're boss beat you with a stick and locked you in the closet because you didn't perform? Maybe she's got persoanl issues (like being physically abused) that distract her from her schoolwork? You're a jerk. That's not an opinion. Don't like it? Why don't you come find me and beat me with a stick and lock me in the closet.

Ugh. I feel sorry for any kid who has a mother who calls herself "Smurfette"

A little stark fear has never hurt a child. But respect of one's parents has to be earned.  I have raised 3 sons and 2 grandchildren alone. Darkness and confined space don't encourage learning. At 13 that kid is already out of control. She needs to be figuring out how she can encourage learning.  My grandson didn't  try in school. He isn't stupid, just stubborn.  He graduated, just barely' and now is working 50+ hrs a week at hard labor for a landscaper.  He wants a better life and NOW realized what he missed in school he might just need to make that better life. The sad part is his diploma is just as good as all the others handed out at that graduation.

Maybe if we would stop writing comments (giving children more ammo), some of their negative behaviors will stop. This is in fact the information highway. The more our kids logon to the internet, the more problems we see. Ever since Officer Bob showed up in the Elementary schools in the 80's, our kids have dialed 911. I asked a group of Junior High School kids why they do the things they do, they responded that because can't no one do anything to us and if they do we will call 911. We are sending negative messages to children. Once DCFS steps in, it is a nightmare and it is hard to wake up from that nightmare. Kids are now raising the parents. Kids don't have respect for their parents anymore.  We are always ready to judge the parents. If a parent spank their child they are not bad, we just make it seem that way. Mostly every parent want their children to grow up and be productive. Wake up people, we are priming children for failure possibly prison. Now a days you don't just get DCFS/CPS visits for spanking, you get them for yelling too (it is called mental abuse). Just prepare yourself, you can be next.

Are you kidding me?  There's a "BUT" to "child abuse is awful"... I wonder how you were hired to even write for the OC Weekly...  There's NO "BUT".  Get the child a tutor, don't beat her.

Yah, nothing like terror to encourage love and respect. Children who are taught to behave because of fear of extreme punishment are likely to go wild as soon as they are out from under the immediate control of the parent.

Have you not lived long enough to realize that parents are basically two people who had sex (most likely) and have a child. Everything else, how they are raised and loved and punished is determined by the character of these two people who bring their child into this world. Being a parent does not always make you right, corrupt, much less a saint. You must have felt your beatings helped shape you the way you are now. And we can see how that came out. Ridiculous. I have a feeling you feel threatened by your children...and that they were taken away from you. I'm sure you deserved the nightmare of the agencies involvement.

I dont care what nobody say im not letting my children run over me. My daughter has done that 2 my husband,(her father) and shes 11 cause he spanked her for wearing revealing close outside after we told her not to, anyway she told her theraphist that he beat her and put a little scratch on her. Well he spanked her but he didnt put a scratch on her hand. That I no because I was there and he never touched her hand. Kids no that the system is on their side, but who's on the parents that is just trying to dicipline their kids in the rght way side??? Smh it's really really sad.
