A Costa Mesa woman is accused of hitting her daughter and locking her in a closet because the child earned bad grades, according to court records.

The 32-year-old woman is charged with one misdemeanor count of child abuse, Costa Mesa police told the Daily Pilot, which has decided not to name the mother to protect the identity of her daughter, a minor.

Authorities alleged that on Oct. 29 the mother hit her 13-year-old daughter three times with a stick and then locked her in a closet for six hours as punishment for "bad" grades, said Costa Mesa Police Sgt. Phil Myers.

He did not know the grades the girl earned.

A concerned party called police after the incident, he said.

Police arrested the woman within a couple of hours of the report. She was in custody at Orange County Jail until early Monday morning, when she posted bail and was released, according to Orange County Sheriff's Department records.

When I was young, 4 or maybe 5, and my father was stationed in Texas, my parents were both working and I'd have to go to a babysitter. This woman was horrible. I only have vague memories, but I do remember she was a fan of beating us with sandles, and locking us in the closet. It wasn't over anything serious. Basically if we acted our age, we got beat and tossed in the closet.

Hate that fucking woman. Hope she has cancer.

The reason I asked is that years ago, I taught a couple of Vietnamese twins. They were very quiet and worked very hard, but they couldn't crack a B+ in my class. They came to me crying--and I think they were very sincere--that they needed an A or they would be beaten. I checked with other teachers and one had met the parents and said they were extraordinarily cold. I was struck by their terror of going home with less than an A.

I have several Vietnamese friends and yes they can be very obsessive about it, they demand excellence.

I think my kids wished I only beat them and shoved them in a closet when they get bad grades. Not that I beat them, but that would be a much quicker punishment overall than all the extra work they have to do while dealing with privileges lost until their next report card.

The only exception is if they earn the bad grade. I mean, if they work their butts off, study hard, ask for help, and still can't get it figured out, then they get some slack because, to me, effort is half the battle right there. If this person's kid screwed off and didn't put any work into their grades, than maybe, just maybe, the kid might have deserved some of what he/she got.

I have a good friend and co-worker that is Vietnamese. He is one hard worker and has more then one job on top of owning a business. He also has a great moral compass and is great to his wife & daughter. He worked his way through college as a massage therapist at a well known hotel and casino in Las Vegas. That is when things were "booming." Many hotels have closed their spas now.

He told me "we were not born with silver spoons in our mouths" so I had to reply, "chopsticks?" :D

His father was a fisherman in Vietnam....

He also took in his teen age nephew who is an almost perfect student.

A kid who works really hard and still can't get his grades up needs some help with his work-either he is having trouble concentrating and needs some activities that will help him develop better skills in that area, or he needs help overall, like from a parent, or maybe even a tutor.

A kid who slacks off deserves to have to do some work as a punishment. It's a much better lesson than going all Carrie's mom on him and locking him in a closet for hours on end.

I have known children I would have wrapped in duct tape and hung upside down in a closet.

My 9 year old niece who lives in your neck of the woods is also a little shit. But dogs and babies love her, so she can't be too bad.

In the great scheme of things, this is pretty minor.

I'm sure you'd rather have seen the kid's peer group take them out back and beat
them in the alley. Yeah, that's more effective than putting them in the closet, eh?
