TOMBALL, Texas – A woman from Texas posted a video on YouTube giving her thoughts on how a parent should discipline an out of control child, KPRC reports.

"This child starts screaming -- I'm talking the blood curdling, veins popping, it was bizarre," said a woman identified as Kathleen Smith.

Smith recorded the three-minute video on her cellphone while driving home from a Tomball-area grocery store.

She said the child in the store was throwing things on the ground and screaming and the child wouldn't stop.

"I just had to take a minute and pray to the baby Jesus, because I'm telling you I almost walked that woman over to the wooden spoons and get that (expletive) under control," said Smith.

Smith went on to say there are different ways to stop that kind of behavior and some of her ideas may surprise you.

"There are two answers to this: Kill it, give it away," Smith said. "I just said a small prayer. 'Please, Jesus, let there be something wrong with that child that makes it do that, because if not, I would like to know why that woman has not beaten the (expletive) out of that kid yet.'"

Meanwhile, hundreds of people have clicked on the video and are sounding off about it. Kelly Tollar saw it and said she is disgusted.

"For her to apologize, for one, she also could have hurt somebody making a video, so that's a whole other ordeal and hopefully learn something from it," Tollar said.

Meanwhile, Smith posted a second video after the first one saying, "I'm not sorry for anything I've said."

KPRC went by Smith's place of business Monday to get her response to the video but she was not at work and didn't call back.
