Hell hath no fury like a mom finding out her daughter has been ditching class.
14-yr-old Rickilee Durrant’s mom learned that she had been skipping class every day last week. And to teach her a lesson, Jeannie Crutchfield, 34, decided to surprise her daughter, by showing up at her Casper, Wyoming school. Armed with her cell phone camera she confronts her daughter and then follows her around school, filming the entire time.
The taunting, taping and tormenting went on for a full three minutes. As if this humiliation wasn’t bad enough in front of her classmates, Crutchfield, a single mom of three, then posted the video on Facebook. It quickly went viral and she says her attendance has gone up.
So what do you think? Is this a mother acting in her daughter’s best interest or did she cross the line?
I don’t know how I feel about public shaming. However, I do applaud this mom for taking action. I think the lesson learned for the girl is accountability. And for the parents and mom the lesson is to get involved with your kids.
And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
