From FOX News:
DES MOINES, Iowa — Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the “meanest mom on the planet.”
After finding alcohol in her son’s car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old’s misdeed with everyone — by placing an ad in the local newspaper.
The ad reads: “OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don’t love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet.”
Way to go, mommy!
If I was a teen and this happened to me, I would probably be furious, but looking back at that time in my life, I’m glad my parents were willing to step in and snoop around my stuff too.
Parents HAVE to be proactive, now more than ever. Things are worse for teenagers than they were even 10 years ago. There’s more pressure, more opportunities, and more plain-old weird crap out there for them to get messed up with.
