Was This Florida Child’s Punishment Overboard? [POLL]
One of the big discussions in the country today is about how teenagers don’t have any respect for parents, teachers, or just people in general.
I recently read a story about how parents in Florida made their teenage daughter hold up a sign at an intersection for 90 minutes as a form of punishment. It read: “I’m a self-entitled teenager w/no respect for authority. I’m also super smart, yet I have 3 ‘D’s’ because I DON’T CARE.”
Now, the parents are getting flack for being too harsh to the girl. Some have taken to Twitter and have labeled them “Worst Parents Ever”. Her dad did not leave her out there alone, he actually stayed with her the entire time, and after the 90 minutes the teenager was remorseful and apologized to her parents. The family has had recent issues which may have contributed to her bad behavior.
But the main reason for the backlash is that people passing by, took pictures then spread them all over Facebook and Twitter, (which to me is another problem).
