Discipline and “Tough Love”

Okay we’ve all heard about the mom who made her bratty kid stand on the street corner holding a sign saying she acts up in school and her parent are preparing her for the future, “… will work for food.”

I say kudos to the mom for drawing the line and acting when the kid continued to cross it. This story immediately reminded me of the story back in April about the kindergartener who was such an out of control brat that the school had to call the police. In the former case, the kid had issues, and the mother (no daddy mentioned) was unwilling to admit that her little angel could possibly do wrong. Thus, no discipline, no authority = child who will have problems for the rest of her life.

Here, the mother took a stand to at least try to set her kid on the right path. It looks as though it might have worked, too.

As far as I can see, she did the right thing.
