Zeigler wanted his wife to spank Riley with a belt when she failed to say things like "please" and "yes sir" or "no sir," Stickler said Wednesday. Zeigler didn't believe Trenor was doing it, however, because the 2-year-old's behavior wasn't changing.
The fatal beating happened after Zeigler stayed home from work to make sure his wife was following his discipline plan, Stickler said.
In her statement to Galveston authorities, Trenor said the girl was beaten with leather belts, had her head held underwater in a bathtub and then was thrown across a room, her head slamming into a tile floor.
She was two!!! The toddlers I've been around are hard to understand. And she most certainly was not in an environment where her parents sat down with her, read to her and nurtured her. If they had nurtured she wouldn't be dead.
Hell isn't hot enough for these two.

We need a license to fish but not parent. disgusting.
Absolutely an illustration of the value of early childhood and family education.

No heat . . . it is just a huge jump to abortion in cases like this.
We need to start with educating young women regarding life choices and consequences and teaching them to value themselves.
Too many girls/young women, even after feminism, devalue themselves and put up with being mistreated.
I commend you for talking to young women with children about the risks of letting men move in. This would be a good things for pediatricians to do.
The jump to abortion is not meant to be a political point, it is a heartfelt wish that women who are going to be dangerous mothers would sooner abort a child before that child has awareness, than at age two , when that child was at the mercy of her stupid mother and her boyfriend. Some women can be taught and will take it to heart, some are only "breeders" and stupid ones at that. There have been programs out there that do try to teach at risk mothers how to parent safely, but some people will NEVER learn, due to whatever reasons, maybe they were abused children themselves and couldnt overcome the damage done to themselves.
