A mother in Indiana had a unusual way of showing her 14-year-old son the difference between right and wrong: She made him stand on the sidewalk for two hours wearing a sign that listed his crimes.
The sign read: “I lie, I steal, I sell drugs, I don’t follow the law.”
His mother, Dynesha Lax, said she was fed up with him breaking the law (he has already been convicted of multiple felonies) and decided to take things into her own hands.
“He constantly chooses to break the law,” she said. “I’ve had my son in the system and he ends up getting nothing but community service. So today I decided that if he wants attention, we are going to get him some attention.”
She continued: “He doesn’t show any emotion for it, that’s the reason we’re out here. If he has some sympathy for what he was doing we wouldn’t be out here. I hope this makes it sink in.”
The teen remained quiet during the punishment however he did tell NewsChannel 15 that he will change his ways.
