cnn.com...

This was on CNN, well maybe this is a good way to deal with it.
I guess she got arrested for shoplifting, so her mother is forcing her to wear a T-Shirt that says "Hide your Money, Hide your Clothes, because I am a thief"

It makes me laugh but It also make me think that it could work with younger kids.
I wonder what everyone here thinks of this?

I think this is a perfect example on how to use public humiliation as a deterrent and a teaching tool. The Japanese use this to an extent of creating shame upon individuals in their communities to punish one that breaks the rules.

I think some cases like this is handled much better than any court room could.
I am ok with it, it needs to be used more. I would even like to see exiling individuals from their communities as a punishment make a return. Every punishment does not call for an individual to sit in a jail cell to be "rehabilitated."

I saw this on CNN and my first thought was GOOD FOR THAT MOM!
My second thought?
How many people are going to say this is abuse. Too many.

No This bad because it wasn't' far enough. What we should do is put her in stocks and throw rotten food at her like a Civilized society and for Drunk Drivers? Iron Maiden. Rapist? Guess what? Wicker man. Terrorist? Brazen Bull.
I mean let's look at the facts , TV is nothing but brainwashing by the Illuminati , right? So how should we entertain ourselves? Public Hangings for pick pockets! The kids will love it.

Well I would assume its less abusive than beating their kids for it.
I think it would also be alot more of a deterent, unless, there was like a bunch of kids with the T-Shirts, then they would make a club haha

Wow - Mom is wearing a shirt that says "sexy to the hard core" - WTH?

Anyway~

Public humiliation - if used, should be used wisely.

Yes, after a few takers oblige to be humiliated publicly, I am sure the rest of the teenagers will soon get the point and think twice about their actions. Teen years, the most influential time of a persons life, lets use it to its fullest advantage to jerk a knot in these kids asses.

Good discipline technique - about time too. Kids need to learn that every action has a consequence and it's a great way to see how 'un cool' theft is because we all pay for it in the end and the kid who continues will carry it with them for the rest of their lives.

Who would knowingly employ a thief and once it's on the record, there's no taking it off - they need to learn early what the very serious consequences are. S&F

Public humiliation works I guess... why not tattoo it on her face so she WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER IT

Yes sir I'm sure that girl learned her lesson well and will behave in the future and never cause trouble again after that HORRIBLE punishment. You have got to be shi**** me, lol if that were me having to wear that shirt i would love it and think it was hilarious. What an idiot.

The huge practical flaw with this is that sloganned t-shirts, with a variety of strange, risque, gimmicky or rebellious messages, are extremely common.

How many people would read what's on the girl's t-shirt, and take it at face value? If I'd seen someone wearing a t-shirt like that, I'd assume that it was some pathetic attempt by the manufacturers to offer an ''edgy'' or subversive message for teenagers to wear.

Reminds me of my son's ex wife and the mother of my grand daughter who doesn't call her by her name, Alexis, she nick named her "stupid".................Alexis has ADHD.

No, this isn't the way to "cure" a kid that shop lifted.

It's leaning towards the Middle Eastern People and how they punish their kids.

Next you'll be saying, brand all adulterers with A's on their forehead.

God, when I see posts like yours it just makes me sick to see how mankind has degenerated vs ascended.

Not saying Shoplifting is right.

Consequence - tough love.

My first son got "into trouble"..............we let him suffer the legal consequences (He also has ADHD).

He paid for the errors of his ways, we also took out a second mortgage at $150,000 to have him committed past what the insurance would pay for, for psychological counseling and he is now a productive, honest and redeemed person.

You know, nobody thinks twice about the massive trillions we are pouring into our military and yet when it comes to family and social services people balk and wonder why our kids (with a 50% divorce rate) are so screwed up.

How about Winona Ryder, should she be wearing a tee like that.................she is a millionaire and stealing.

Did this girl have the money? What did she steal?

Not saying what she did was right, but no her parents have no right to shame her - this will only drive her deeper into misery and I guarantee you making her wear that tee shirt will not solve her problem.

You sound like my brother in law who use to beat me with a belt and make me stand in one spot for six hours until I fainted.

I notice the mum has SEXY on her t-shirt. How are people to know what to believe?

Anyway, at 13 she can still get a smacking and grounded. You brand your child an untrustworthy thief they might stay that way.

Hearing how they talk... Ah forget it. "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all".

But I did like what the mother did. Hopefully this will push her kid in the right direction. However, I doubt it.
