ReShonda Tate Billingsley is another parent in the string of parents who have recently taken to the social networking site, Facebook, as means of exacting punishment for their children’s behavior. It is a growing trend of parents taking to such a public forum in reprimanding their children; some critics are arguing that the new method may damage an adolescent’s self esteem.
According to the Huffinton Post, Billingsley is not the only parent to have taken this seemingly harsh approach; Ohio mother Denise Abbott’s daughter, Ava, posted “disrespectful” content on her Facebook page to which Abbott then forced her daughter to hold a handwritten sign that read: “I do not know how to keep my [mouth shut]. I am no longer allowed on Facebook or my phone. Please ask why.”

I personally believe this example was a good method. It’s better than the parent beating the child senseless. If the child can make an inappropriate post publicly, then they should deal with their errors publicly. Go mom!
Hear, Hear! Then again, our parents beat us ridiculous…but we turned out just fine! Kids nowadays have got it easy.
