Now this video can be a little uncomfortable to watch.
A mom stands on the sidewalk, berating her 13-year-old daughter for pretending to be an older teenager and making suggestive posts on Facebook. The girl fidgets and sniffles.
“You’ve got a Facebook page, and you’re on there with your bra on, right? Is that what you do?” Valerie Starks asks as the girl begins to cry.
“Don’t cry now. You wasn’t crying when you was posting pictures on Facebook, was you? In a bra?” the mother continues. “Some little girl in some lace panties that you know you don’t own. You still wear panties that say Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.”
The video goes on and on and while it was just posted this past Sunday, it has already received over 11 million views. Some of the user comments are positive ones, and others…well, not so positive.
Personally, after watching the video, I found it a bit much. As a parent myself I can totally understand where she is coming from. Her daughters actions were unacceptable and in this day in age could really land her in a world of serious trouble. Do I feel the mother went about it the right way…not so much.
The fear of public humiliation I would imagine could work on some kids, but it could also have a negative effect and cause them to rebel even further.
I would say this mother went on a little to long in the video, trying to prove a point that could have been proven in under 30 seconds. This mother had a fear of her daughter being exposed on social media, so making a video and having it go viral with her full name and person, probably didn’t solve anything and will more than likely cause this young girl more harm then good.
*With that said, some of you may ask “why is Awesome Jelly posting the video and writing about it if it is going to do more harm then good.” Our response to that would be “At this point the video is being seen by millions of people, the world is seeing this with or without this article being present. We are sharing a view point of the video that we feel should be shared. One where this kind of stuff should not happen, nor go viral. Sometimes you have to take a bullet to save the rest.”
