Wonder if this is yet another one of those useless "stay-at-home" dads, since it is is said that the mother was working while Daddy was beating up a 5-year-old.
Never even occurred to this numbskull that maybe he should help the child learn to count? But of course it's possible the numbskull doesn't know how to do so himself. Likely, actually.
The Daddy Genius is identified as DEWAYNE REY.
Father accused of beating 5-year-old with belt

The father of a 5-year-old boy was jailed Wednesday on $100,000 bail, accused of beating the kindergarten student with a belt because the little boy couldn't count to 10, and failed to do pushups and sit-ups.
DeWayne Rey, 26, is to appear Friday in East Fork Justice Court on allegations of child abuse.
Deputies were called to C.C. Meneley Elementary School at 11 a.m. Wednesday after a teacher reported the child had a bruise.
The little boy reportedly told investigators his father was upset with him because he couldn't do enough sit-ups and pushups. A sister said their father beat the little boy until he could count to 10 properly.
The incidents were witnessed by the child's other siblings who corroborated his story.
The children said their mother was at work when the beating occurred.
Investigators observed a half-dozen welts and bruising on the child's back and chest.
Rey was arrested at the school around 6 p.m., when he went looking for his children who had been taken to the sheriff's office by deputies.
Someone called deputies from inside the school at 5:40 p.m. to report that an irate parent was outside trying to break in, and they believed it was Rey.
School personnel were advised to lock down the building until deputies arrived for the safety of staff and children attending Kids Club, an afterschool program.
Witnesses said Rey was outside the building pounding on the principal's office door. He reportedly tried other entrances unsuccessfully before deputies arrived, and he was taken into custody.
