Haha, I think this is a great punishment, though part of me agrees with dramaticgirl. People at my school would have been like, “DAMN, Nate – you’re such a badass! How’d you get away with it for so long?”
PS – Amy is my kind of Mom – she isn’t the kind of Mom to send him to a shrink to ‘discuss his problems’, she just makes him confront his reality and broadcast his stupidity. He may get high fives from his mates, but he also serves as a reminder of what Angry Moms can do. Shit and piss in a locker… that’s not a normal kid.
Whoa! HAHAHAHA! In highschool, one of my friends got caught sneaking out and her dad took away her make up for a month. One time my brother was acting up in school, so my mom went and sat in on every one of his classes for the whole day. Aw man, being a parent is awesome sauce.
I tend to fear #2 is right.
But also how the hell is this a punishment? Everyone’s going to be high fiving him on the way in! Maybe if the sign didn’t say ‘punishment,’ because then it would look like bragging and everyone would think he is a dick, but now they know he’s not trying to brag, he’s being forced to by his parents…
Also, frankly I feel free to criticize that bitch’s parenting, and she can f&ck off. Has she ever considered if she hadn’t sucked so much ass as a parent to start with he might not have turned into a douche? And if you’re going to post your son’s punishments on facebook then _be prepared for people to voice their opinions on them_.
I’m sure these are two different stories. Amy makes it sound like shitting and pissing in the lockers of the opposing team was the last straw and that’s what she had written on his poster. It’s not like this is a unique punishment idea, it’s right off Curb Your Enthusiasm.
I think Amy needs to calm the hell down though. The shitting and pissing incident is a little out of hand, but who didn’t do a ridiculous thing or two in their youth? But now here Amy is calling out all the other parents on facebook like she’s the only one who has ever had a kid that steals and looks at porn. If she thinks her son is that big of a deviant she obviously has a bit too narrow of a world view.
I laughed, but I have to wonder… just how long did he stand out there for? And what, was Amy really out there the entire time making sure he stayed? Because unless he wasn’t embarassed at all, and kids were coming past saying he was cool rather than laughing… I don’t see why he wouldn’t just dump the sign and go smoke some pot.
It would be funny if the kid changed the sign to “I smoked weed and watched porn and got caught and all I got was this lousy punishment.” Well, it would be funny without all the ands, but anyways… I too think these are two separate posts.
Looking at all the overbearing dickbag parents commenting on this should make a lot of people realize they may have missed their calling and opportunity to have a lot more disposable cash to waste on porn and sweet, sweet cheeba. Becoming a criminal defense attorney (for when Junior there chops mom’s head off and uses it as a dashboard ornament) and/or a psychiatrist (for when Junior grows up to have serious trust, self esteem, and psychosexual issues) would/could net you serious dough when you encounter one of the kids these two fools are parenting at some point. Either that or you can make some good scratch working in an old folks’ home. Lord knows there are going to be a lot of lonely ass old people who alienated the hell out of their kids once their kids got old enough to realize they don’t have to put up with their crap and take care of them anymore.
@ defectiveuser You’re a presumptuous twat. Nothing in that points to her being a single mother or having a dead beat partner. I hate these iron fist parents who miss the fact kids need guidance to grow and not punishment after punishment. All it does is builds resentment and a teenager full of resentment is going to act out even more. Imagine what she’s done to his self-esteem.. Maybe the kid’s a little prick but it’s clear why; his mother.
Speaking of presumptuous twats. I said nothing about punishment after punishment. I agree 100% with guidance to grow. In the same token they also have to learn from their mistakes and the mistakes of others. Before you fly off your rocker, I do not condone physical punishment. If my daughter needs it, she will get it. I have done a very good job at raising my daughter. It isn’t very often That I have to get onto her. When I do, not much has to be said.
The single parent reference came from her post. If you read in-between the lines, you will see there is not a we in there anywhere. It is only I.
Also I am simply stating my point. No argument is intended.
Well the presumption that there was no “we” because she is a nazi bitch, who thinks she has the right to treat her kid like a dog is just as valid then. the reason i wrote twat is because of your condoning of her idiocy. Which i presumed meant it was something you’d do.. So i am also guilty..
I saw a couple of girls, about 12 or 13 years old, standing on the corner of a very busy intersection holding signs that said “We stole from Wal*Mart.” Driving by 5 hours later, they were still there. Looking horrified and devastated both times. It was amazing. I’m willing to bet they will think twice before shoplifting again. My parents tried the whole “guidance before punishment” thing and I was a WRETCHED child that didn’t grow out of it until I was in my 20s, had met my current husband, and had children of my own.
dude,if my dad had just let me do that instead of all the bs punishments he came up with, i wouldve been stoked.
i mean,there’s no way it can be effective,the shttiest part would be having to stand there,i dont see how any kid would be mortified by this,he’s just holding a sign with info that all his friends already knew…
1. Desolation row, I and my brothers didn’t smoke weed and watch porn when we were in high school. Then again we were shipped off to boarding school once we became 10.
2.titsonabull,seriously?! What are you? 10? Guidance? Please! Has it occurred to you that she has been guiding him up till the point where he thought it was cool to piss in someone’s locker?Growing up, this “punishment” would’ve been a breeze for me. Since I went to private schools, my mum’s method of punishing us was telling the headmistress to make us stand in front of the whole assembly and tell 300+ students why we missed school the previous day or whatever. Being a head girl and my mum’s method of punishment did not mix very well(the brits on here can explain what a head girl is).
It’s this whole attitude of “kids need to be guided” that is ruining the USA and causes some trailer trash to sit by while their little bastard rams into me at the store. I know someone who still lives with mummy because she won’t pay rent if he gets a place and his 70yr old father is still making payments on his car because he thinks his parents owe him for making his life hell when he was 16-18(sent to boarding school). Is that the guidance you were talking about? Oh and he’s 30+ .
When I was at high school, if we misbehaved in our electronics class, we were made to stand outside the year 11′s (senior year) block and sing nursery rhymes. If you didn’t sing loud enough for the year 11′s to notice you (and gather round!), you had to sing louder! If you were a year 11 and were given the punishment, you had to stand in the same spot outside, but sing loud enough for the Head of the French department to come to his window..on the second floor.
I had that punishment. I never misbehaved in electronics again. But I also admired the teacher for his creative punishments! Particularly when he made some of the more arrogant lads in our year sing and do the actions to “I’m a little teapot”. He did always warn us. He always said “if you don’t tidy up/behave within the 10 seconds – you’re outside singing!” Children need to know there are consequences!!
@ bollywood_rocks83 How do you relate that to guidance? I’m not saying punishment is wrong, i’m saying THIS punishment is wrong.
Loss of privileges does the same thing without shaming, and building resentment and self-esteem issues… I think you come from a world very different to mine. I’m still dealing with the issues that beatings and emotional abuse in the name of punishment has left me with.. I hope for the sake of your unborn kids that your ovaries fall out so you don’t pass on your misguided superior attitude. How you can relate some hick letting their kids run wild to guidance is beyond me. Btw, i am australian. Oh and i’m still waiting for a brit to explain what a head girl is.. ’cause i really give two fucks.
Some kids don’t care about a loss of privileges. One of my sons is perfectly content to be grounded to his room with no toys. He can spend days living in his ADHD fantasy world. (Anybody with a classic ADHD child or close relative can understand this). We’ve had to be very creative with punishments for him. Thankfully, we haven’t had to “punish” him often. While we do not partake in physical punishment, due to it now being called child abuse, I am a firm believer that there are occasions when a good ass beating are called for. There is a HUGE difference between disciplining and child abuse. I wish my parents would have beat my ass a few times when I was growing up, it would have changed a lot about my “rebellious” 12 years and I would have more respect for them today.
To begin with, a kid who steals all the time has issues that should be addressed from their root (in addition to punishing him). Sense of insecurity at home, other problems. This kid needs therapy, seriously. And excreting in the opposing team’s locker room sounds like something he did on a dare, or under threat. If not: again, therapy.
Second, having your kid publicly confess to a crime doesn’t strike me as good parenting. Let’s hope no hardass cops drove by. It would be way out of line for them to bust him, but some cops would do it just out of pure hatred for all teenagers.
