Try not to use food to punish or reward your child. Withholding food as a punishment may lead children to worry that they will not get enough food. For example, sending children to bed without any dinner may cause them to worry that they will go hungry. As a result, children may try to eat whenever they get a chance. Similarly, when foods, such as sweets, are used as a reward, children may assume that these foods are better or more valuable than other foods. For example, telling children that they will get dessert if they eat all of their vegetables sends the wrong message about vegetables.

And I will leave you spending the rest of your life in obedience to your betters.
What I wish for you is that you never, ever learn how to think independently and face yourself in the mirror.

Show me where the parents were directly, intentionally, willingly hurting their child.
As I pointed out, if these parents were doing anything wrong, they would have been arrested, not just bullied.
