Furious mother shames her bully son on Facebook

angry mum

This mother’s Facebook post has gone viral, after she publicly shamed her son via a status when she found out he was bullying kids at school.

This is a controversial move, and it’s going viral.

Mother Terry Evans took to Facebook to express her dismay over her own son’s bullying antics.

She explained in the post that she caught her son bullying a girl who recently joined his school.

The single mother outed her 12-year-old son in a Facebook status, expressing she was “absolutely disgusted” that her son “Purposely tread on a new girl’s foot at school”.

If you so much as breath in her or anyone’s direction in a bullying manner I will personally hand you over to their parents for every demeaning chore they see fit for as long as they do,” she wrote.

The post has received over 54K likes and has been shared over 100K times - many praising her for her “fantastic parenting”, while others argued she was humiliating her child.

One woman wrote, “Why extend the humiliation? Your poor son. This will haunt him forever. A mistake at 12, online now for all to see.”

“This is an incredibly dangerous thing to do to any child… What is even more disturbing are the huge numbers on here who cannot even see the dangers of what she has done,” another wrote.

FULL POST:

Absolutely disgusted that my 12 year old son saw fit to purposefully tread on a new girls foot at school and twist his foot with such force it broke her brand new shoes (causing the heel) to snap.

I’ll tell you something Jacob ( JustPost Rng Photos) if you so much as breath in her or anyone’s direction in a bullying manner I will personally hand you over to their parents for every demeaning chore they see fit for as long as they do… kiss goodbye to your birthday money as you will be buying the girl a new pair of shoes and a bunch of flowers! #‎iwillnothaveabullyinmyhouse

Update. To answer a few questions, yes my son can see it, he was tagged in it before it went viral(which I didn’t realise was going to happen) so his friends could see that his actions have consequences, he is not big, clever, hard or funny, he’s a 12 year old boy answerable to his mam.

I don’t much care who doesn’t agree with my parenting style, my son humiliated and embarrassed a girl, regardless of his reasoning (which was he didn’t expect to break the shoe he just thought she may step out of it or stumble) that little girl still cried, for anyone’s knowledge that girl may have left her old school because she was being bullied… then imagine how much worse my son’s ridiculous act would have made her feel.

So my so called embarrassing him online is a to be quite frankly nothing in comparison to the humiliation that little girl had to face walking round with a broken shoe and red eyes from crying when she is new.

Ps… of course I sat and spoke to him about his behaviour, I didn’t just tag him in a post and he read it! I am wholly confident this was a single occurrence which won’t be repeated.

So over to you - do you think this post is too extreme, or did she do the right thing?
