Two-year-old Amari Lamb is a resilient little boy.

The beating he took with a back scratcher while in day care at the Cedar Early Learning Center in Cleveland hasn’t phased the toddler. Although he’s clingier than usual, according to his mother, Ryane Lamb, who spoke exclusively with Fox 8 News.

“He cries when I leave. He doesn’t want to be away from his mom, which I understand,” said Lamb.
