Busted?

I anticipate on supplying it.
 
2012-08-26 04:57:39 PM
Yes, strap a sandwich board to your kid and humiliate him in public for an hour or so. That will absolutely set up a dynamic of trust.
 
2012-08-26 04:58:30 PM
This will in no way backfire.
 
2012-08-26 05:03:45 PM
Hopefully he learns a very important lesson and is much more inconspicuous with his weed from here on in.
 
2012-08-26 05:04:15 PM

MacEnvy: This will in no way backfire.


Yeah. I see that kid, I'm asking him to hook me up.

I consider this to be a form of advertising instead of any sort of punishment.

Vodka Zombie: Yeah. I see that kid, I'm asking him to hook me up.


Just look for the guy down the street with the sign that reads "Cheap Eighths, Fair Weights"

Mom "He's a great kid, does good in school...."

Not anymore he wont. He's gonna be farked with by the other kids for years.

Yes, he will definitely learn to hide parts of his life from his parents much better from here on out.
 
2012-08-26 08:12:13 PM
On the plus side, at least he now has motivation to hide his weed better
 
2012-08-26 08:19:29 PM
I watched the video with the sound off. For a punishment, the kid and the mom seem to be smiling a lot.
 
2012-08-26 08:25:19 PM
I bet that punishment would have been a lot more fun stoned...
 
2012-08-26 08:28:29 PM
I wonder if anyone rolled up and handed him a nug for later...

I would HOPE that's what he learns.

What's the deal with the "Marriage would have saved the kids" sign guy at the I405 NE8 intersection in Bellevue? I've seen him a couple times and can't figure out what he's trying to protest.

I know a girl who got busted for shoplifting & her dad made her wear a sign that said "I'm a thief" outside the courthouse.... she never did it again. And still speaks to her Dad.
 
2012-08-26 08:33:17 PM
I cannot if this is effective or not for this child, but it is not what I would do to my son. Maybe this is what would work for him, but it would work for my kid
 
2012-08-26 08:34:02 PM
Will smoke for food.
 
2012-08-26 08:34:38 PM
Yeah, heaven forbid that the mother dish out any punishment. I mean, the kid may grow up without and consequence for his actions and end up on the government dole.
 
2012-08-26 08:35:10 PM
If I was the kid I'd write. "So if you want to know where to score a gramme call me" on the bottom of the sign.
 
2012-08-26 08:36:09 PM
Fair enough. If she doesn't want her kid smoking weed, that's up to her.
 
2012-08-26 08:36:33 PM
I'd have packed a one-hitter before going to serve my sentence. Stuff really takes the edge off in stressful situations.
 
2012-08-26 08:37:11 PM
Caught smoking pot? Four days on pedophile island.

/greater good
 
2012-08-26 08:38:39 PM
I'm okay with this.

bluefox3681: Yeah, heaven forbid that the mother dish out any punishment. I mean, the kid may grow up without and consequence for his actions and end up on the government dole.


Or, you know, she could have just grounded him, taken away the cell phone, PS3/Xbox/Wii, and computer, and made him come straight home after school for a week or two with no free time allowed to be spent with friends.

I do think it's funny that the sign includes the "...got caught" it does sort of imply that the pot smoking is OK as long as no one finds out.
 
2012-08-26 08:40:33 PM
If you need to resort to public humiliation to discipline your child, you've already failed as a parent.

fark that coont biatch.
 
2012-08-26 08:40:49 PM
It is not clear whether he was busted just by her or actually has pending charges. If it was just by her it would in her interest and the kids' to just shut up about it.

GAVING SEX

Not being punished
just bragging.

He should wait until she leaves, then switch the sign to:

"I SMOKED A BLUNT
MY MOM'S A C*NT"
 
2012-08-26 08:44:41 PM
Have him get me some
 
2012-08-26 08:44:58 PM
In all seriousness, I do not think the kid will do it again. Yeah, she may be a biatch, but I can guarantee you that he stops it.
 
2012-08-26 08:45:49 PM
While an idiotic "punishment", it by no means puts her into the running for MOTY.

/A better punishment would be to force him to research and write an essay about the dangers of smoking.
//Of course, the mother probably thinks it's worse than it actually is... but, hey, then she can learn something too.

FTA: "Time outs and taking things away just doesn't work any more. Sometimes a little public humility is what they need nowadays to get a point across. If this works for him and maybe saves one or two other students from thinking about picking this stuff up, then I feel like I've done my job as a parent," said April Mathison

Funny how when someone steals and they make them wear a sign it's perfectly ok. But when a thirteen year old gets busted smoking pot all of a sudden it's bad parenting. My son just turned 13. If I caught him smoking he'd definitely be grounded for a long time. And if I caught him a second time? You bet your sweet ass he'd be standing outside with a sandwich board. Good job on mom for not just turning a blind eye. I know it's "just pot", but he's only thirteen god damn years old.
 
2012-08-26 08:53:50 PM
My kid? "Wait until the law is changed, dummy. Yes, it's a stupid law. Yes, I disagree with it. But it is the law, and until it's changed you can be arrested and go to jail for breaking it."
 
2012-08-26 08:54:34 PM
At least he has a common enough name this probably won't haunt him in his future job/college applications.

When I was in the first grade my mopther caught me lying about something and put a sign around my neck saying "Don't trust me I am a liar'" and sent me off to school. Needless to say I did not want to go to school like that but she forced me to leave. I walked to the end of the driveway and stood there in tears for a while till mom figured I had had learned a lesson and called me back, took off the sign and sent me to school. Yes I learned a lesson and was very careful about the telling the truth from that day on. Of course I have lied since then, everyone lies, but usually only to people who were a-holes and didn't deserve the truth.

YOU ALRIGHT?! I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU!

The thing is this mother, I'm guessing, is in her 30's..let's just say 35. That would mean that she graduated high school in 1995! That was a short time ago; what happened so quickly to make her out of touch with youth?

My point being that she should have a fairly recent perspective of the teenage mindset and it would be much more effective to emphasize the reasons why she thinks pot isn't a good idea for a 13-year-old; for example bad for brain/body development, with tangible examples.

By adopting a "pot is bad/you're bad" stance and humiliating him, she sets the wall between them even higher which may increase the chances of a rebellious teenager doing even more drugs.

THIS! And I smoke a hell of a lot of the wacky backy. He's too young. I think it should be legal and all, but only 18 and up.

When I was young, being caught by my parents just made me better at hiding it.

/caught once

Normally the Fark Righteous Indignation Brigade spends its time biatching about mothers that don't discipline their kids for breaking the rules. This mom punishes her kid in a creative and non-violent way for breaking both her rules and Federal law, and you guys go apeshiat? Wow.
 
2012-08-26 09:01:46 PM
Congrats, kid. Thanks to your mom, you just pre-flunked every job interview in town.

/"Hey, that's the sandwich board kid. Don't waste money on a drug screening, just go to the next candidate."

Are you sure your his sister?

I love the hypocrisy here.

If a kid breaks the law and the parents do nothing, there's outrage on Fark.

If a kid breaks the law and the parents do something, there's outrage on Fark.

If his mom caught him smoking, then he's obviously not very smart, and it's only a matter of time before he gets in legal trouble over it, which will be an expensive pain in the ass for his parents. That's probably why they're stopping it now.
