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"

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

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.

Mr. Carpenter: AverageAmericanGuy: Mr. Carpenter: AverageAmericanGuy: Mr. Carpenter: AverageAmericanGuy: Beaver Knievel: Yes, Fark whiners, because MORE "hands off" style Meh parenting is EXACTLY what this THIRTEEN year old child needs.

Gimme a break. Pure obviously not a real parent.

We parents are deathly afraid of being caught raising our hand to our spawn. Only in the privacy of our home can we even think of spanking.

I was at Target and some nosy woman yelled at me for raising my voice at my son. RAISING MY VOICE. Seriously dude. I hadn't even given him a slap on the face or twisted his arm to stop him from squirming.

Times are different. Parents can't discipline kids in public anymore. Just saying.

Raise your hand to another human being that's attempted assault and as a society we throw you in prison to be raped like the little biatch you are. What kind of man hits someone weaker than him? A pathetic excuse for one that's what kind. You want to use violence to teach someone a lesson, I'm pretty sure Bubba has quite a few to teach you, so bend over.

Right. Rape is an appropriate means of correction.

What the fark is wrong with you, dude.

Oh you're an idiot. Let me spell it out for you. If you think violence is an acceptable form of correction for a child, then what's good for the goose is good for the gander. We as a society do not condone it, so welcome to rapesville, population you!

Spanking = rape

Do I have that right, you farking weirdo fetishist?

I'm afraid child abuse is especially looked down on in prison, so you're probably going to have to put up with quite a bit more than just Bubba. And is "squirming" the same as "being hit by a man 7 times your size" until you've "learned your lesson."

The fact is, if you accept violence as a valid form of correction, than not only are you a farking moron (it's not nearly as effective and far less so than other forms of correction) but you're also a pussy.

I'll take my chances, you non-breeder.

Rockstone: Drug use isn't even illegal. Possession of it is.

Yeah, I heard that from my friend Wesley who also told me that income taxes are optional.

My step mom did shiat like this... I have not spoken with her in 10 years (outside of work) because of her "tough love"- We work in the same place, but her pot smoking step-son makes about double her salary as a server admin. AND that pisses her off too.

/Going to burn one now... and count mah money.

What's the harm? Listening to the pro-legalization crowd, occasional marijuana usage doesn't cause any long term damage. Why punish him at all?

Vodka Zombie: 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.

I just assumed the mom was a dealer and this was her cunning plan.

Shakespeare's Sister: 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

Are you sure your his sister?

srtpointman: 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.

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 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.

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.
