The so-called Youtube ‘DaddyOfFive’ profile owners, Michael Martin and Heather Martin, lost custody of two of their children who they featured in prank videos. In the videos, the parents could be seen yelling at their kids, blaming them and even hitting them for presumably doing bad things which they did not actually do. The children, Emma, 11, and Cody, 9, are not Martin’s real children. They are their stepchildren. Rose Hall is their biological mother.
The parents were accused of abusing their children which they featured in the controversial popular videos, as their prank actions could cause mental and psychological damages to the children.
They would wrongly accuse their kids of bad behavior and then make them go through physical and emotional punishment. One of the kids, Cody, who was highly abused in the prank video could be heard saying in the video:
“You all made me go through all these just for a stupid prank? I am tired of this. Leave me alone. I just want to be left alone so I can cool down”
This has left many wondering why some parents could be so callous to their own children. However, the parents agree that they did things that they should not do and they put things on the internet that should not be there.
Although, the Martin family posted a video on their DaddyOFive channel apologising for what they did and claiming that they only wanted their kids to be happy but they went about it the wrong way, they are already being seen as bad parents. The unfortunate parents who are now in family counselling. See their apology in the video below. Meanwhile, Cody and Emma have been returned to their biological mother.
