Never mess with Mom — that's what everyone should take away from the latest form of public shaming after a young girl gave her parents "lippy attitude" and lied about her whereabouts, seemingly on more than one occasion. Because of said child and her friends acting like "little trollops," the mama's auctioning off her daughter's One Direction concert tickets and openly calling out her scandalous acts (via Huffington Post):
"THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your b****y little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else's gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post
…OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived …..And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!! I'm not your friend. I'm your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now….. But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child"
The real question here: Was it appropriate of the parent to shame her child in this manner? One user on Reddit suggested no, "As a parent myself, I am all for standing up to your words and tough love. I have no problem with taking out a privilege from a kid who had screwed up badly. So go on and sell the ticket. But does the mother have to lower herself to that level, and sound like a bitter teen herself? Who is the adult here?"
