The rise of social media has changed work, play -- and many aspects of parenting. For some moms and dads, it has even provided new ways to discipline. In the latest edition of "I'm getting back at my child on Facebook," one couple has taken to the social network to embarrass their daughter in a highly creative way.
Instead of a traditional punishment, the mom and dad of two used their daughter's cellphone to post silly (read: mortifying) pictures of themselves on her Facebook wall. The girl's brother, Reddit user AustinMac posted one of the photos (see below) over the weekend with the caption: "My parents took away my sisters phone for the week. They've uploaded about 10 of these to her facebook. Doing it right!"
His sister's offense? "She got fresh," AustinMac told a fellow Redditor.
Well, that's an interesting approach. What do you think of this type of punishment?
