I-A-B`s Candidate for Mom of the Year 2008

No, really–I think all of I-A-B can get behind this parental punishment. Or maybe not. Too cruel?

    It`s a good way to punish the child.
    I always like humiliation as punishment. Not like as in get off on, or anything, but it almost always seems to work. You take the person away from their friends to tell them off, they come back to their friends and say nothing happened and continue doing it. You do this, it works.

    Way to go mom! Not too cruel or extreme at all! She should get a shirt made with that on it and make him wear it everywhere for a week, to school if school was in session at that time.

    I`ve heard of judges doing similar stuff. If he did it, he needs something like this. Maybe the embarrassment of it will teach him not to do it again. I`ll bet he got made fun of by his friends, and I guarantee you that will be a deterrent. Go mom!!

    It`s not total humiliation, it`s just making a point. I hope it works.

    but thinking about it, she probably did go to town with the sandal. poor kid.

    I agree, this mother knows how to discipline correctly, hitting and using violence is not the answer, but neither is being too easy on the kid, this has the correct amount of punishment and "love" for the child and I highly approve. More parents should do this

    I thought fora sec he was really trying to get into prison, lmfao.

    uhhh, no. just let him get into prison. Unnecessary punishment just leads to resentment, which brings the kid to want to make their parents angry with them.

    when he`s put in prison i think he`ll figure it out himself.

    Good parenting requires a parent to be smarter than their kids. This may seem over the edge but anyone who has been the victim of theft knows that what this kid is going through is not even close to the frustration of working a crappy job to replace stuff you`ve already owned.

    "but i think da mom shud b punishd da same way 4 makin him do dat"

    Why should the mum be punished too? Looks like she has morals, is bringing up a son who`s father is in jail - meaning probably on her own. You know what? I can`t smack my toddler on the hand or butt, I have to REASON with him. You can`t reason with a toddler, their world revolves around them! (not going into that, too lazy to type it all) And you certainly can try smacking your teen, or grounding but it doesn`t really work does it? So you go to a new form of punishment, this. Will it work? Maybe. Should she be punished for it? Uhh NO! Should you even suggest that - wait til you have your own kids and find out for yourself.

    Giligadi - That just means the father is a douche (since we don`t know the reason why he`s in jail it could be a minor offence, like unpaid fines. But I`ll assume he`s a thief from the sign)

    The mother made a bad choice, we all make them. She obviously cares for her child and doesn`t want him to make the same mistakes his father made, why does that make her a dumbass?
