Woman Allegedly Beats Boy for Not Knowing the Alphabet

An Indiana woman faces battery charges after videos allegedly showed her abusing a child for failing to repeat the alphabet.
GARY, Ind. (AP) -- A northern Indiana woman faces battery charges after videos posted online by her ex-boyfriend allegedly showed her hitting and berating a child for failing to repeat the alphabet.

Twenty-five-year-old Rosena Small is being held at the Lake County Jail on charges of neglect of a dependent and battery resulting in bodily injury.

The Post-Tribune reports that a probable caused affidavit states that Small acknowledged hitting the 3-year-old boy but that she said she didn't intend to hurt him.

Detective Alex Jones says in the affidavit that five videos posted on YouTube by Small's ex-boyfriend show Small hitting the boy and using a door stopper to smash his toys when he fails to recite the alphabet.
