Tasha Henderson got tired of her 14-year-old daughter's poor grades, her chronic lateness to class and her talking back to her teachers, so she decided to teach the girl a lesson.The mom is getting some backlash and people are calling her abusive. Tasha's approach seems very mild to me and apparently it has worked. Coretha's grades and punctuality have improved.
She made Coretha stand at a busy Oklahoma City intersection Nov. 4 with a cardboard sign that read: "I don't do my homework and I act up in school, so my parents are preparing me for my future. Will work for food."
I don't have a problem with this. It's not as if the girl was abandoned on a highway -- her mom was right there with her. It certainly seems better than smacking her around.
