Hmm I dont know. If I had did something like that, my parents probably would have did something along the same line. Probably not put it on the internet, but guarantee my extended family would have knew. I think the punishment wasnt all that bad but they shouldnt have uploaded it to youtube, that was overkill. Maybe record it, but delete it after it was over.
I never did stuff like that, because I knew my parents and what kind of punishments they gave. So knowing consequences, I avoided doing things or I took precautions to not get caught.
Quoting Spacetits:" I don't want to watch it. The kid is pregnant. She is already suffering the consequences of sex... I don't see what would be more upsetting than that."
She isn't pregnant, she is telling random guys that she is on Facebook. Apparently she is still a virgin just wanted to create a false "bad" identity.
That's not my parenting style and I think uploading was the "too far" part.
On the other hand, if I were parenting a black, teen child doing stupid shit on FB as well as risky sexual behavior, I'd come down on him/her like a ton of bricks. It wouldn't involve this type of humiliation, but some serious shit would go down in my house.
The video is hard to watch. If the child is acting out for attention, then maybe her parents should give her some. At age 13 her mom and dad are fully responsible for her. And if she gets pregnant or into serious trouble, I think it is on them and the way they have parented her. I mean 13 year old children are going to do stupid things and act out (newly into their teen years), that doesn't mean you humiliate them in such a dramatic way. She needs discipline and consequences, however this isn't how it should be done in my opinion.
