This Mum Shamed Her 'Bully' Son on Facebook
When Terri Day discovered her son had behaved abominably towards another student at school, she took to Facebook to publicly remind him that his actions were unacceptable.
When the post went viral however, Terri found herself defending her own actions against people who feel her decision to shame her son was too heavy handed.
The story started when Terry's 12-year-old stamped on the foot of a girl in his glass, braking the heel of her new shoes.
Tagging her son in a Facebook post, the furious mum wrote:
“If you so much as breath in her or anyone's direction in a bullying manner I will personally hand you over to their parents for every demeaning chore they see fit for as long as they do.
“Kiss goodbye to your birthday money as you will be buying the girl a new pair of shoes and a bunch of flowers!”
While many parents congratulated Terri for coming down hard on her child's bullying behaviour, others felt she could have kept the punishment private.
Alison Kyle said: "Why extend the humiliation? Your poor son. This will haunt him forever. A mistake at 12, online now for all to see."
Terri says she shared the status update to remind her son that actions have consequences: "He is not big, clever, hard or funny," she said "he's a 12 year old boy answerable to his mam."
She added: "...my so called embarrassing him online is quite frankly nothing in comparison to the humiliation that little girl had to face walking round with a broken shoe and red eyes from crying when she is new."
The post has since been removed but not before it was shared almost 60,000 times.
