A Chinese man forced his 4-year-old son to go outside in his underwear and do push-ups in the snow in New York City to toughen him up

The family was visiting New York City for the Chinese New Year.  The father made the boy go outside in his underwear in 8 degree weather. The boy started to shiver and cry and the father made him do push-ups.

The man says the incident is part of an education plan to counter developmental difficulties he was told his son may have to due to premature birth.
