When 13-year-old Ava Abbot was disrespectful to her mother in front of friends, she was faced with a punishment only possible in our digital age. Her mother Denise took to Facebook, where she posted the following photo of Ava on her daughter’s account:
The text reads, “I do not know how to keep my [mouth shut]. I am no longer allowed on Facebook or my phone. Please ask why.” Denise put the photo up on her own page, as well. Ava was then required to respond to everyone who asked about her new photo, and had to tell them why it was posted.
While most teens would likely be angry about such a move, Ava seems humbled by the situation. “I feel like I deserved it because I was mean to my mom and spoke disrespectful to her in front of my friends,” she said. Though that may just be a move to avoid any more punishment. Either way, it’s doubtful that she’ll be mouthing off again soon! [via NYDN]
