Police in China have decided not to take action against a mother who viciously beat her six-year-old son with a wire coat hanger after they agreed he had been "naughty" for not doing his homework.

Xiao Bing's injuries were discovered by a teacher at the nursery school he attends in Jiangmen city in China's southern Guangdong province while he was getting changed for a sports lesson.

The little boy revealed, when his teacher asked, that his mother had beaten him with a wire coat hanger because he had not done his homework that day.

Horrified, the teacher reported her pupil's wounds to the authorities, but it has now been revealed that Xiao Bing's mother will not face arrest

In fact, a police spokesman has since said that the injuries simply looked worse than they were and that the boy needed to be taught a lesson.

Police spokesman Hu Lung said: "The boy's mother and father are unhappy about his performance at school, saying that he is a naughty boy who often fails to do his homework and needed to be taught a lesson.

"His mother had hit him after discovering that once again he had not done his homework on time."

They added that the boy had been taken to hospital for treatment but insisted the bruises had quickly reduced in size, meaning he was sent home to his mother that very same day.

Furious that police had done nothing about the vicious attack, the troubled teacher posted the shocking image of the little boy's back to the internet, in a bid to highlight the abuse of children by Chinese parents who put their offspring under enormous pressure to perform at school.
