Back in the day, being punished by your parents either meant getting grounded or (in extreme cases) being spanked. But one mom has decided to vent all her frustrations by publicizing her teenage daughter's punishment using Facebook.
It all started when 13-year-old Ava spoke disrespectfully to her mom, Denise Abbott. The mom then decided to photoshop a profile photo of her daughter silenced by a white-on-red X, along with the following message:
"I do not know how to keep my (mouth shut). I am no longer allowed on Facebook or my phone. Please ask why. My mom says I have to answer everyone that asks."
According to WPTV, Abbott then made Ava send curious respondents the following e-mail:
I feel like I deserved it because I was mean to my mom and spoke disrespectful to her in front of my friends. Facebook is a big part of my social life, and it's how me and my friends find out what is going on and making plans and about school work and projects. It made me realize that I didn't want my picture on there like that because all of my friends were asking me what happened and what I did. I told the people that asked me and my mom why that I spoke to my mom mean when she was doing nice stuff for me and my friends. I know my mom always makes sure I don't get away with stuff like that and I was sorry. Thank you, Ava.
When asked if she thought her punishment fit the crime, Abbott responded: "You have to adapt your parenting skills with the times." Still, it's much better than that other parent, who ended up shooting his kid's laptop.
