Should Children Watch a Child Being Born?

by Steve Ray on August 20, 2008

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.

The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Katelyn, a 3-year-old girl, to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby.

Very diligently, Katelyn did as she was asked. Heidi pushed and pushed, and after a little while Connor was born.

The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry.

The paramedic thanked little Katelyn for her help and asked the 3-year old what she thought about the birth she had just witnessed.

Katelyn responded, “He shouldn’t have crawled in there in the first place. I think you should spank him again!”
