Re: "meanest mom sells car"

GOOD FOR THIS MOM. Some of you may not agree with her "public humiliation" of her son but she may have just taught her son a lesson he'll never forget. Come on, a 19 year old is NOT going to fess up to his mom that it was his booze. Teens, alcohol, and vehicles - not a good combination, no matter what. (Even if it was his friend's booze...what is he doing letting a friend with alcohol in the car?) If she stopped the next minivan full of children from being mutilated by a drunk driver by a bit of public humiliation, then GOOD. This issue is not something to be tiptoed around. We've had too many deaths is my area over the last few years from drunk driving/irresponsible teen driving and I have NO compassion for this kid. I think this mother was very clever, and more importantly, RESPONSIBLE in what she did.

Besides, she knows her kid and what works with him, obviously.

Re: "meanest mom sells car"

I personally wish there were more parents willing to do things like this. Both me and DH agree what she did was the best thing she could possibly do for her son and he will definatley think twice next time. Way to go

Oh and we also do the taking away of toys and they have to earn them back we have even trashed and sold toys and told ppl why we are selling them because our childern were not being responsible.

Re: "meanest mom sells car"

how is this that much different than the funny auctions on e-bay were a mom sales her kid/s belongings because they don't take care of them?

I think it's great. Sometimes a lesson that breaking the rules has consequences is in perfect order. Regarding the ad...if you break the law and get arrested, it's in the paper. It may be a taste of what's to come if he doesn't start obeying the law/rules. I love it!

Re: "meanest mom sells car"

You know I heard that story on the news and I am so proud of her. Most parents will either give in or just let it go.
She was showing her son that she is not going to budge on something so seroious.
I bet that is the last time she will ever have to embarass her son. I bet that is a life lesson he will not soon forget!
