If Becky Crandley says she’s going to humiliate you, you’d best believe it. The 30-year-old British mom came up with a diabolical way to embarrass her son at school for misbehaving in class.
Becky got a call from The Sittingbourne School in Kent telling her that her 12-year-old son Harley had been rude to his math teacher. So, the clever mom decided to teach her boy a hard lesson.
“I constantly threatened that I’d sit with him in school if needed, and he always laughed it off,” Crandley told KentLive.
So, the mother of five showed up at her son’s classroom and sat with him for the duration of the class. The teacher even introduced Becky to the other students as Harley’s mom.
“He didn’t have a clue, and he was very embarrassed for sure,” she said.
Becky’s only regret is that she didn’t capture everything on camera. “If only I got a picture of his face when I walked in and sat down next to him,” she said. “He went so red, there’s nothing I can compare it to.”
Becky isn’t the only parent finding creative ways to discipline their children.
Dynesha Lax was tired of her 14-year-old son breaking the law and only getting “a few hours of community service” as punishment. So, the Indiana mom made her son stand on a street corner wearing a sandwich board listing all of his misdeeds. The sign read: “I lie, I steal, I sell drugs, I don’t follow the law.”
“If you’re looking for attention, we’re gonna get you attention,” Lax told her son.
Dads are getting in on the action, too. Joseph Blakeney, a father in Pasadena, Texas, was furious with his son after the boy gave his mother attitude. Blakeney threatened to walk his son to the bus stop wearing his wife’s dress.
“He thought I wouldn’t do it,” Blakeney wrote on Facebook. “Bet he will act better now.”
Not only did Blakeney make good on his threat, he posted a picture of himself on Facebook wearing the sleeveless black number.
“When you want to treat your mom bad in the morning,” Blakeney wrote, “you get walked to the bus stop by dad in a pretty black dress.”
