An Austin man is behind bars, charged with burning his two-year-old child to teach the child a lesson.
Police say 24-year-old Ira Kincheon put his child in a sink full of hot water last month because the child had wet himself. The toddler was taken to the hospital with severe burns.
Kincheon confessed when questioned by police.
Police say parents should ask for help if they get too frustrated.
"We just need for parents to recognize, if they are stressed, to take a breath, relax and reach out for help because there is help out there for them," Jermaine Kilgore with the Austin Police Department said.
Kincheon is charged with Injury to a Child, a first degree felony.
