LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A dramatic case of discipline in Lehigh Acres has many WINK News viewers sharing their opinions.

A mother asked a sheriff's deputy handcuff her 5-year-old son; he threatened to send him the child to jail.  She hoped it would teach him a lesson about not playing with matches.  And it all happened in public. 

We asked you - did this mom make the right move?  Or was her discipline too harsh?
