There may be hope for this generation after all. I’m sure our pals over at TheProudParents.com would agree this is a parenting win.

    When the child was young you should have taught her compassion and not to bully. It’s your own damn fault, and you putting a sign on her like that shows me exactly where she gets her bullying from.

    This is lazy parenting at its best! I’m sorry but, humiliating a child in public is not discipline – it’s desperation! This truly sickens me. This child should have been made to do some ongoing community service to others and had privileges removed – and maybe even write an essay or two on appropriate behaviors – not something as idiotic as this!

    Ahhh a little creative parenting to put things in perspective….. Nothing here to call child protective services on. The behavior will change for the better or she will become a serial killer….. Not quite the same as a D.I. making you run around the barracks with your pecker in hand screaming “This is my RIFLE… This is my GUN” but a learning moment either way!

    For all of you guys assuming she got her issues from her mother, you don’t know the full story and are WAY to quick to assume and jump to conclusions. That’s what’s wrong with this generation (adults and children included) you are to quick to point fingers and play the blame game instead of taking responsibility for your own actions. This girl is 16 years old. She KNOWS right from wrong and knows what she did is wrong. I think the punishment fits the crime. I also don’t believe when she “grows up” she’s gonna hate her parents. You people complaining and judging her parenting skills would probably just ground her and take her stuff and send her to her room. I was a teenager not to long ago myself and I know it didn’t teach me a damn thing! Everyone raises their children differently and you can’t bash on someone because they conduct things different than you do. (unless they are physically hurting their kids)

    Most of you people that are calling this child abuse and bullying by the parent obviously are teenage trolls yourself or young adults that don’t have kids yourself. Get a life and give this parent some kudos for actually standing up to her adolescent daughter and forcing her to wear a sign that tells everybody the truth about her. Teenagers these days feel entitled and like they are better than anyone else and it’s all because of the TV culture of today. Jersey Shore, The Real Life, and Keeping Up with Kardashians are all shows that teach this generation of kids to act like they are superior to others and that they can commit social faux pas without any kind of fallout. So keep your trolls to yourself and leave us parents alone.

    Really? How soft are you people interested in being? I believe that children earn respect and earn freedom and earn rights based on their ability to show respect, be honest, treat others they way they would be treated. She is being shown what her behavior begets…. current teenage generation for the most part… has very little respect, desire to achieve, concern for others… I am not impressed. If this is something she remembers and learns from, all for it. But how about we let licensed professionals determine OMG how much emotional damage she’ll suffer from being reminded that she is a child, she is responsible for her actions and there are consequences!

    Are you all fucking serious??? We NEED more parents like this! This generation of kids has gone to SHIT because of all of these laws that have put a limit on how parents can discipline their children!! We’ve got idiots like these that are crying “child abuse” because a parent is trying to set their kid straight for doing bad things!! Beating the kid to a pulp is a big no-no of course, BUT this is probably a much better and effective way! Public humiliation will show just how bad this kid has been, and having that done to them will help encourage them to improve their attitude and set a better example! That way people will see later on that they have realized their mistakes and are being respectful and behaving better!

    Parents let their kids tread all over them nowadays! I’m saying this is a parent WIN! Because this parent doesn’t care if they are being judged as a “bad parent” they are following through with an effective punishment to teach their kid that what they have been doing is NOT okay!!

    I believe the parent who did this has no parenting skills whatsoever. Humiliating your child will not correct their behavior…They might cover up their bad behavior but by 16 you have already failed as a parent. This will cause emotional scars for the child. At the end of the day, does this make the child compassionate? Will the child never lie, or just be more careful. For those of you saying…”hurray for the mom” and today’s kids are all horrible….etc. How do you know this child isn’t a straight A student who is an ideal kid but their parent is a horrible person who beats them when they spill a glass of milk? Maybe, these are the types of parents who keep their kids in a cage. There are two sides to the story, but humiliating your child is horrible and helps nothing.

    Oh good lord people. This isnt child abuse. Yes, its a bit humiliating, but if this kid is THAT bad, she kind of needs it. The reason why kids are so damn bad nowadays is because people scream child abuse when any parent punishes their child in ANY way. Its ridiculous.
    Kudos to this mom for making her kid wear some measly sign stating what the child actually does.
    And maybe she DID teach her kid to not be a bully when she was younger, but at that teen age, they start deciding weather they want to listen to their parents (and other peoples) advice or not and parents arent completely to blame. Its not ALL about what you were taught once you get to that age. Its about what you (as a teen) decide to do, because youll have been told by someone or another what is right and wrong.
    I was brought up in a horribly broken home with actual mental/emotional and physical abuse and Instead of being abusive myself, I took how hurt I was from it and learned that I shouldnt make people feel that way, because i didnt like it so why should they. Its called common sense and most teens dont have it anymore and parents cant do jack about it.
    This isnt abusive. Its teaching a good lesson that if you do shameful things, you will end up ashamed one way or another.

    To all you whining cry-babies complaining about this poor child–guess what??? She has a CHOICE! If she doesn’t like the way this feels–she can’t KNOCK IT OFF. She can do what normal people do when something is painful–they STOP whatever it is that causes the pain. So while you’re pussy-footing around with her behavior, her siblings are being terrorized and she’s lying and potential putting herself in danger while the whole time acting like it’s her parent’s fault. I’ll bet you in 10 years she’ll say it sucked, but she deserved it.

    I normally would never condone humiliation, but this upcoming generation is (mostly) ungrateful, mannerless, and hooked on technology. I hated being punished with the belt as a child, but I believe it made me a better person. I was taught how to earn money and learned how to spend it wisely. I digress, though if your kid is a brat, then the parent is partly to blame. Good to see a parent is trying to correct their mistakes by being proactive.

    This is child abuse. People think that this isn’t, but it really is. All children have at this age is their reputation, and you are stripping her of this by doing this to her. All that is going to accomplish is her being bullied by other people, and hating her parents when she finally turns eighteen.

    Besides, maybe the parents don’t know the full story. If I had a nickle every time that a sibling tried to get me in trouble for doing nothing, I would be a very rich person right now. And I had teachers that specifically told my parents I disrespected them just to get me in trouble with my parents. It’s a tough world.

    People say that you can’t have an opinion about this if you’re a teenager or if you don’t have kids. I’m sixteen years old, and I don’t have any kids, but what I do have, is an opinion, and a mind of my own. People may think that this means that I’m saying I know better than a lot of adults, which I’m not saying at all.

    I would never do this to my child. Being a victim of immense bullying, I would never throw that on anyone. The fact that parents will do this without thinking about it makes me angry.

    People are also saying that she’s sixteen, she should know right from wrong. Well, she would, if she was raised well. If she wasn’t taught right from wrong, she wouldn’t know right from wrong, and if she really didn’t, her Mother would be punishing her for something she didn’t even know.

    I get angry to think that people are cheering this on. It’s one of the worst things you could do to your kid, and it honestly makes me sick to my stomach. I apologize, I don’t mean to rant on here, but I feel bad for the poor girl.

    No one deserves that kind of humiliation, thank you, and good day.

    As far as I’m concern you should shame the child the little ingrate. Society says you can’t spank, beat, whip or punish. So now that they are older they don’t think they have to listen. Well if you live in my house you follow my rules, it worked for me and I think I turned out ok. If you don’t think it’s fair send all the little bad asses to DSF and see what they say then. Let them put up with the little shits.

    Anybody that has ever had the pleasure of raising a teenaged girl totally understands that this is a parenting win. There are very few that survive the ordeal without some sleepless nights. My daughters (and their friends) were good kids, but teens don’t always make the best decisions. They need to be taught that their decisions have consequences. Better that she walk thru a store with a sign saying these things than in the back seat of the wrong car, drinking from the wrong bottle or worse. Time is short and the lessons aren’t always pleasant.

    This is a fine example of a mother FINALLY taking back her life! The government says you can’t discipline your kids, you can’t hit them, you can’t yell at them and you can’t make them sit in a corner – well the last one is about the dumbest thing I think parents do. The morale to this story is that lies, bullies and know it all’s live in secrecy. Let them wear their afflictions on their bodies so we know them by their signage.

    By all means this is an excellent idea! Its called creative parenting! Its not being a bully, we do not know what was tried before. Obviously the parent needs to find options and is doing something many dont do anything! Go Mom this is as good as wearing booty shorts to embarace you child into understanding their limits. Simply cause you teach them when they are young does not mean they will follow through as they get older! Go MOM!

    Is it bad that I find this sandwich sign trend hilarious? I’m sorry, but it seems like kids are getting exponentially more disrespectful, indifferent, and spoiled. Nothing gets through to the Facebook kids. Sometimes harsher measures are needed. It’s not like she’s beating her child. So the girl was embarrassed for a day, boo-HOO.

    I am finding that it doesn’t matter what a parent does to teach their children correct principles and behavior,others will always find fault with it. Everyone seems to think they have all the right answers to everyone’s else’s situation or problems. For all those who decided to criticize this parent, offer some sound advice besides taking away privileges.That seems to be everyone’s answer but it doesn’t always work. The community service idea was pretty good but it needs to be something that involves working with other people and help by taking care of their needs so she learns compassion. I think when she works with others to care for their needs, she would learn some of the reasons people are in those situations. As for being a know it all, put her in a situation where she must ask for help or advice to complete a task that task so she learns and must admit she doesn’t know it all. Those are just ideas but I am not blaming the parent for her efforts to teach her daughter. Everyone goes through an embarrassing situations in their life but must learn to learn from it, get over it and move forward.

    Public shaming like this does not help, it will only cause more resentment and drive your kids further away.

    But hey, when you’re the kind of person that shops at Walmart, I guess that’s what you can expect anyway. If she’s 16 now, she’ll be pregnant within a year.

    Harry, you sound like a spoiled little brat. “All children have at this age is their reputation,” uh, and mobile phones, computers, lcd tv, shelter, food and no job…

    “Besides, maybe the parents don’t know the full story… If I had a nickle every time that a sibling tried to get me in trouble… And I had teachers that specifically told my parents I disrespected them just to get me in trouble…” Why would your teacher do that if there wasn’t already a problem with you that made them not like you? I had a teacher that flat out told me that she didn’t like me and that she would send me back to the principle every time I came back to her class from OCS. And she did. But the reason she didn’t like me was because I was a turd in her class and constantly disrupted her class. So, while she was often lying about me to get me out of her class, I brought that on myself.

    “I would never do this to my child. Being a victim of immense bullying, I would never throw that on anyone.” Would you allow your kid to “throw that on” somebody? If you were bullied, then you should know what it’s like on the receiving end and do ANYTHING you have to do to stop your kids from being on the giving end, or receiving end. And if it takes public humiliation to stop a bully, then that’s what a parent should be willing to do. You do it out of love. I care enough about my kids that I would never want anyone to think of them in a bad way. Certainly not as a bully. So you administer tough love. Sometimes we as parents have to suffer along with our kids in punishing them. But if the heart of the parent is in the right place and it teaches the kid a lesson, you suffer through it knowing that end justifies the means.

    And as far as knowing right from wrong, you don’t need your parents to tell you bullying is wrong. Or that disrespecting teachers is wrong. Sure it would help to learn it young and be lead by example, but it is no excuse. It’s not that they don’t know right from wrong, it’s that they’ve never had strong enough consequences for doing wrong. They’ve been allowed to get away with things either by total lack of discipline or by insufficient discipline.

    And “one of the worst things you can do to your kid?” Here is where your age shows. There are way worse things that can be done to kids. Kids have suffered way more at the hands of their own parents.

    You are entitled to your opinion, but to tell adults that it makes you angry that they support this shows you lack respect for adults. I think maybe you just don’t realize what respect for adults and authority really looks like. Maybe you weren’t lead by example. That is your parents fault. But you still deserve to be told by someone. There is a reason we have a thing called “age of consent,” because a sixteen year old has not matured enough to make educated and rational decisions. You think you are, but you’re not. You sit here making judgments on parenting when you are not experienced enough to do so. And in that inexperienced and flawed judgment, you find anger towards people with a lot more experience than you. It’s not that you’re not entitled to have an opinion, it’s that your opinion don’t carry weight if you’ve never been in the position of the person you levy your opinion against.

    You seem to have a pretty good head on your shoulders. I hope you take this to heart. This was not an attack on you, just an attempt to share with you something that may benefit you.

    RHESUS, that was such an ignorant statement that it negates your opinion. Why would someone want to follow a valid opinion with ignorant arrogance? If your point was valid, your ignorance diminished the validity of anything else you said.

    I shop at Walmart because, in my opinion, it doesn’t make since to pay more for the same brands just so I can say I didn’t buy it from Walmart. “I buy my Pepsi 12 packs from Target because only trashy people shop at Walmart.” Yeah, only trashy people pay less. It would be just as ignorant and prejudiced to make a blanket statement that people who don’t shop at Walmart are the same snobby elitists who have spoiled children while they tell others how to raise their kids. No matter how often that is true, it is still a blanket statement and therefore flawed. But you have a right to spew your ignorance for all to see.

    They forgot to mention that said 16 year old also couldn’t sit down because of the sore butt she had for telling her Mom she would not wear the sign and Mom couldn’t make her do it. Somehow, thinkgs have gotten ass-backwards, with kids thinking they rule and parents drool. WRONG! My home is not a democracy where a kid even gets a vote. It is a dictatorship run by two heads of state: Mom and Dad. And if the kid doesn’t like it, we allow them to say so, and then hear our answer of “Too Damned Bad!” That was then. Now, our 30 and 40 year old children are raising their children the exact same way because it works, our Grands are polite, respectful and becoming successes in their lives, thanks to good parenting.

    As for the PCer’s and their cries of “child abuse,” any time you want to take over, be my guest. But you do so on a permanent basis, with all the expenses and heartaches attached. That goes for the Government factions that threaten to “take the child away.” The last time I was threatened with that, I told Child Protective Service they were welcome to do so, even begged them to do so. When they saw that I was serious and that I would not back down, they blinked, and I never heard another word from them.

    WOW, Mom’s really following those politically correct internet fads closely!

    1. The “anti-bullying” bandwagon.

    What better way to teach your children not to bully than to bully them in public.

    2. The “let’s publicly humiliate our children to teach them a lesson” fad.

    She be “disrespecting”.

    Way to go mom. You’re really teaching your kids how to respect others like a real pro.

    I would bet money that mom wasn’t lying in wait with markers & construction paper in hand waiting for a chance to use the super parenting skills she just learned herself on the internetz…

    If you think kids are highly impressionable… you should see some of their parents…

    And… what was her crime again? Look close. Does it fit a punishment like public humiliation? Does it?

    Was she caught smoking crack? Trying to burn the house down?

    “Bullying siblings”. – Not getting along with your brother or sister. What a rare and horrible thing

    “Disrespecting” teachers. – Probably asking the wrong question in class.

    “Lying to her parents” – Gee, I wonder why she would be driven to such a thing with such great parents.

    “I’m 16 and I know it all”… Thank God she has such a great mom who shows her such respect, understands how hard it is to be that age and of course… KNOWS IT ALL.

    How much you want to bet that kid with be pregnant and/or strung out in a few years and mommy will of course say

    “I tried!”.

    If this is what it takes for this generation of kids to learn respect and to know their are consequences to the hurtful actions they do then go for it. When ppl say this is child abuse it makes me wonder if they came from a home where spanking was a consequence??…learn what abuse is and then explain what you see. I’m very worried for this generation full of pussys, bullies, self consumed, and unaware. And it’s sad I’m only 24 so I’m stuck with this generation. Open your eyes ppl!!! he hworld’s in fire around you and all you can be disgusted about is a sigh on a bratty teen…ugh. get real!!

    Okay i will give Kudos to this mom who is trying to teach her daughter a lesson about being a nicer person to others and not to hide her actions because it’s clearly seen by others already. However i do not believe this child should have been publicly humiliated by having her picture taken by some random stranger and it be posted to this website. She is a 16 years old, she knows better and she is obviously one who clearly thinks she is all that and a bag of chips and her “holier than thou” attitude needed to be brought down a few pegs and that is all this mother was trying to do. I don’t see this as being child abuse mentally or physically because in time she will learn her lesson, learn respect, and maybe change her attitude and actions. Sure as hell beats, her being spanked or smacked by her parents (which never works) or even being half ass disciplined like “grounding” (AGAIN never works) which is just another word for parents who can’t deal with their kids and want them out of their face. At least this mother is trying something different and i give her kudos for that. I know i didn’t ever learn anything from being grounded or having my belongings taken away because i usually found a way around it and that’s all it really ever taught me. Personally, i am sick of how kids and young adults act these days. Too many of them are either bully’s or getting pregnant, or committing suicide and we all wonder why. It’s because of half ass parenting techniques and yes TV culture. Children are so impressionable during their adolescent years and need to learn discipline and that they can’t just do whatever they want without consequences. I don’t think she will grow up to hate her mom, she might hate her now but, when she gets older she will realize that her mom was just trying to help her learn in a constructive way.

    Good. Kids these days are malicious little fuckers, and it’s not necessarily the parents’ fault. Kids are influenced by a lot of things these days. Hell. I know I had some questionable friends that lead me to make poor choices. And I’m not going to lie, when I was grounded I didn’t give a shit. Oh no, you took away my tv! Guess I’ll just draw and read books and entertain myself other ways. Luckily, I grew out of my angsty phase and I’m a normal human being who is now polite, considerate, and has manners.
    If kids are going to bully and humiliate others, they need to realize their are consequences. Taking away electronics and toys doesn’t do shit. If anything, you’re teaching them that they need to kiss your ass until the get back what they want.
    And if you think walking around with a sign that is nothing but the truth is going to make kids hate their parents and cause issues, than you’ve probably grown up in a household where you were given everything. That’s how snobby kids who take everything for granted act.
