    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GXdimDUV19g <-- it's a short 1 minute video.

    Was shown a similar clip in a recent seminar and going completely off topic, we had a little debate going about whether some people would constitute this as child abuse or perhaps tradition..

    What are your thoughts?

    It looks like a tradition, but you can clearly see that the babies are in pain so the outcome could be abuse even if that is not the intentions.

    Oh wow, how is this child abuse? Just because the babies are crying and in slight discomfort doesn't mean they are being abused, they are being washed and it obviously doesn't have a long-term negative impact on them. In fact, I'd say cleaning and looking after one's child was the opposite of abuse. SMH.

    Wth that's awful. There is actually a proper way to bathe babies, with their safety in mind. Splashing water over their heads is obviously causing them discomfort.

    What a **** tradition. Just dip them into a bloody bowl

    I somewhat agree, just found it a bit much the way they were washing their hair. Babies that age don't even need soap in their hair.
