An Indiana mom decided that enough was enough and forced her 14-year-old son to stand on a sidewalk wearing a sign listing all his crimes.
The sign read, "I lie, I steal, I deal drugs, I don't follow the law."
The mother, Dynesha Lax, said that she felt the punishment was necessary because the judicial system took it too easy on her son.
"I decided he broke the law and they only gave him a few hours community service, so I decided that we were going to wear a sign that says you looking for attention, we're going to get you attention," Lax told KLTV. "What else more can I do? They put him on probation, and when they did probation, they were quick to talk about the 300-some dollars you have to pay in fees, but nobody's trying to help me fix my son."
While some passersby may have found it funny, the police received a call from one who thought what the mother did was illegal. Unfortunately for the child, it wasn't.
Many will look at what this parent did as going overboard, but she felt she had to go to great lengths to get her message across.
