So what is your opinion of the mom who made her 14 year old daughter stand on the corner of the intersection holding a sign saying
"I won't do my homework
I smart-mouth the teachers and I'm always late.
My mom says I have to do this to prepare me for my future.
Will work for Food." ?
The mom says in the couple of weeks since she stood out there WITH her daughter on that corner there has been a dramatic turn-around in her daughters attitude towards life and school.
The daughter says it was absolutley humiliating- but it taught her a lesson...it's definatley somewhere she doesn't EVER want to be again.
The child welfare was called on the mom. But nothing on that yet.
I say the mom is to be commended!!
Good for her for taking a stand.
And good for the daughter for realizing that her mom isn't an ogre and for putting her nose to the grindstone and doing the right thing now.
