    I doubt humiliating a child is a gonna help his grades. In fact, I'd suggest she's creating more problems than bad grades.

    I love this quote:
    :lol:


    I don't think it's that bad, you see how kids talk to each other nowadays? I'm proud of this woman showing her kids who's the boss!

    My sister tried being "friends" with her kids, it didn't turn out well.

    She should leave him there for a week.

    If he's still there when she gets back, she'll have to accept the fact that she's got herself a stupid kid.

    Good for her. And good for the kid for obeying her.

    There's hope for him yet.

    I don't believe in being 'friends' with your kids, and I can understand this mom's frustration with her kid.... I'm just a tad concerned that treating her son like this is gonna backfire on her. Still, it isn't my business - unless her kid ends up costing me money somehow.

    Not sure if it stated in the article-but I read in the newspaper yesterday that the kid is 15 and is in middle school!

    Good for the mother-I'm sure she tried all the typical ways already. :clap2::clap2:
