House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

Teenager Forced to Hold Sign on Corner

I'd like your opinion on this. Do you think the mother was right or wrong in taking this step as a disciplinary measure?
(EDMOND, Okla.) - An Edmond woman who forced her 14-year-old daughter to stand on a street corner last week holding a sign says the public humiliation seems to be working.
The teenager held a sign saying she doesn't do her homework and acts up in school, so her parents are preparing her for her future and that she would work for food.
Tasha Henderson has been praised and criticized for forcing her daughter to do that, but says school officials now tell her that her daughter has been to every class on time.
Henderson has been criticized for mentally and emotionally abusing her daughter. But she says she tried everything she could think of to get her daughter to stop skipping classes and do her schoolwork and didn't know what else to do.
