Shocking footage leaked online shows a pre-school teacher grabbing a little boy by his face.
The footage shows six-year-old Ian walking through the school building and into the school gym.
A woman then approaches the boy, picks him up by the arms and then puts him down against the wall.
She is seen confronting the boy before grabbing him by the face.
The boy’s parents, Autumn and Anthony Nelson, received a letter telling them that the teacher, Barb Williams, of Riverdale School in Hancock County, Ohio in the US, had been suspended from the school for 10 days following the incident.
According to the letter of suspension, Barb said to the little boy, “I will rip you apart," before adding, “I am sick of you… I am sick of your parents.”
The boy’s father said, “We thought it was a little incident that happened and that’s what the school made it out to sound like. Then all of a sudden we get this video - this is just outrageous.”
The boy’s mum said that her son is anxious about going back to school.
“He’s scared of her,” she said. “Even going to the school next year he’ll still have to see her if she’s present in the building.”
The parents are also furious that the teacher got what they say is just a head start on the summer holidays, since there are only 10 days left in the school year.
"I would consider what would happen to myself, if I were to do that to her. If I were to do that to her, I would go to jail," Anthony said.
