In the video posted on facebook, the Reynoldsburg Ohio teen is seen using a clear tape to pin her son for about 15 minutes, while saying “the best mummy in the whole wide world”. “Don’t make me put more tape up there. Now sit still. You can see the TV from right there” she said, as the little boy cried.

“You can’t clean without them running around tearing up? Tape them to the wall!” she says.

“You can’t cook because they’re running around? Tape them to the wall!”

The police say they received a tip-off on the 18th of January after being sent a link to the footage by local TV news station WSXY Channel 6.

Shayla Rudolph has since been arrested on an abduction charge, according to BBC News and her son has been taken into custody by child services in Reynoldsburg Ohio.
