Punishing A Child By Having Them Hold A Sign In Public Must Work It’s Happened Again
Have the parents gone to far? A Florida couple who punished their 13-year-old daughter by making her hold an embarrassing sign at the side of the road said the punishment was a last resort. Gentry and Renee Nickell said their teenage daughter's behavior had become increasingly worse since Renee's brother was killed in Afghanistan in December 2011 and the sign punishment they used Saturday was an idea they had been given by a Christian counselor several years ago.
Here's what the sign read: 'I'm a Self-entitled teenager with no respect for authority. I'm also super smart, yet I have 3 'D's' because I DON'T CARE'. The daughter held the sign at the side of a road for 90 minutes Saturday in Crestview, Fla.
