It usually does not take much for parents to embarrass their teenage son or daughter. Most of the time, simply standing too close to their child or saying “I love you” a bit too loud is cause for a massive eye roll or a very long and loud sigh. For a mother and father in Wisconsin, the embarrassment that was caused to their daughter was not an accident, in fact, it was completely intentional.
After deciding that they would no longer tolerate their teenage daughter talking back to them and being very disrespectful, the Wisconsin parents tried to think of a way to punish her that would really make her see that they were serious. So, the couple came up with a punishment that was sure to hit their daughter where it hurt most..her Facebook page.
The parents first took away their daughter’s cell phone for a week, during which time they took and posted about 10 photos of themselves to her Facebook page. The photos were of the parents making funny faces and awkward gestures.
Since the photos have been posted, they have circulated all over the Internet and eventually made it to the social media site Reddit. It was there that the girl’s brother weighed in on the situation saying that he agreed with how his parents are punishing his sister and that everyone thinks that the photos are funny.
Of course, with any punishment by a parent comes backlash as well. Many people commented on the photos saying that they disagree with how the teen’s parents punished her and that there are better ways of punishment that do not involve publicly humiliating the teen girl.
What do you think of how these parents punished their daughter? Would you ever use this punishment for your own children?
