Shame on the parents. This is a family matter. Punishing a 13 year old child in such a public way is cruel and abusive and will have far reaching effects on the child. What kind of Christian counselor would give such advice? The parents and so called counselor need their heads examined.
People will always be quick to judge and attempt to tell you how to be parents to your own children. There was nothing wrong with holding the sign. Of course she was a little humiliated, but would she not be even more humiliated when she's flipping burgers to make a living or asking " paper or plastic"... I figure if your going to tell me how to raise my child then feed them, clothe them and pay for their education since you care so much.
sorry seretha, i clicked on the wrong name and this e-mail was NOT ment for you. please forgive.
the word abuse is being misused today all the time.
abuse is brow beating a child, physical punishment.
this was a just punishment and it may prevent her from doing something even worse. good for the parents.
I think this idea should be used more....Its a lot better that hearing about kids being abused and beaten. I agree that kids need to learn to respect themselves and others, and this is a good start.
this is way to far i feel for tht girl those parents need too pay and i hope they do what r they going to do next it could b worse
these are not horrible parents. they just want their daughter to straighten up. they love her and no way would they ever do anything worse. we need more parents like them so that we have a lot more well behaved children today and less crime and drugs. good for the parents. parents listen up and correct your kids in a not physical way. ps. i did not see this child bleeding or any black and blue marks on her. just a sign. everyone get over it and enjoy life.
Teenagers can drive you to your wit's end. Sometimes they need a reality check. Better than some parents who don't discipline at all. Live your own lives people.
There's a difference between constructive and effective discipline and poor and abusive discipline. In this case, it's the latter.
She needs help for her depression not humiliation. I've been there too it does get better.
This is why I believe religion and poor parenting just never works.
This is way too far. Christian councilor my ass. That is public humiliation and is completely uncalled for. My dad would do stupid shit like that to me and I got to where I hated him and I still do. Christian councilors and public humiliation-sounds like corruption to me.
This is so idiotic. The parents look like morons. I was humiliated by being made to walk a very long way to school because I was often late when I was 11. Same as this instead of teaching me a lesson my parents were criticized and humiliated. And guess what I'm still late.
Agreed...it's truly idiotic and the parents are morons!!!!! Not only was the punishment a complete waste of time and energy, also, remember this...the young girl in question is only 13-years-old. This experience (or whatever) is just gonna make the kid act out and rebel A LOT MORE. Again, the kid is only 13...trust me...her teenage/rebellion years are just BEGINNING!!!!!
kk, I Love You!
I see nothing wrong with it, if I did what she did I'm sure my parents would go the same extreme and I'd accept that. Her father was with there with her the whole time so she was not in any danger.
