Facebook photos used by mother to punish her 13 year old for being disrespectful

An Ohio Mom, punished and humiliated her daughter in a unique way, using Facebook, since the daughter was being disrespectful.

“I do not know how to keep my mouth shut. I am no longer allowed on Facebook or my phone. Please ask why.” were the words on a Ohio Teens cover photo on Facebook with a red ‘X’ across her mouth.

“I decided to do something that I know would totally impact her, and that the next time she started that, she’d think ‘I don’t want my face all over Facebook again with a red ‘X’ over my mouth'” Abbott told NBC.

Knowing that her daughter was fit to handle her punishment, Abbott said she doesn’t regret her actions.

“You have to adapt your parenting skills with the times,” she told NBC.

Still, some parents say public humiliation isn’t the best way to teach children a lesson.

“Facebook is a social media site for people to interact. NOT a place where you can humiliate your child,” “kirby,” a Chicago Now blogger, wrote.

“It’s a lot more difficult to find an appropriate punishment and actually stick with it, than to act like a child and try to ‘get back’ at them for being mean to you,” she added.

Abbott’s actions reminds us about the tactics of one North Carolina father, who shot his daughter’s laptop and posted the video on Facebook after his 15-year-old wrote a disrespectful message about her parents.

Tommy Jordan‘s methods drew national criticism, but the father said he stood by what he did.

Jordan’s daughter, Hannah Marie, said she thought her dad “overreacted a bit” but that she understood why he did it.

Is the new age punishment fair? does humiliating your children on Facebook makes sense or learn a bad impact on the child for the rest of his/her life?
