Mom humiliates 13-year-old daughter on Facebook

Facebook_humiliationA mother fed up with her loudmouth daughter decided to call her out with a very public humiliation on Facebook.

The Ohio mom posted photos of the girl with an ‘x’ icon over her mouth on the teen’s Facebook page. Ouch! What prompted this?

According to WKYC TV, the woman had warned her daughter that if she mouthed off one more time, there would be consequences: the girl wouldn’t be able to use Facebook for a month.

The potty mouth would be either in Facebook posts or directly in person to her mom.

Sure enough – the teen, Ava, appears to have broken the rules. So, mom Denise not only locked out her daughter from Facebook and took away her phone.

In addition to the X on Ava’s face in the crudely-edited photo (now set as her new profile and cover image), Denise added text reading:

"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."

Most likely, Ava got the message. But did mom Denise go too far?

She wouldn’t be the first. Just a few months ago, a father shot up his daughter’s laptop in a YouTube video that went viral. The video, Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen, has been viewed nearly 33 million times.

So are parents going too far? Or do kids lack respect?
