Illustration for article titled Mom Embarrasses Daughter So Hard on Facebook She Begs for a Spanking Instead

You know when you were a kid and you did some dumb kid thing, and as punishment your mom dragged you in front of your friends to embarrass you? Just be glad the internet wasn't around back then, or you'd be begging for a butt-whoopin' instead of digital ignominy, like this 12-year-old troublemaker.

ReShonda Tate Billingsley caught her 12-year-old daughter posing with a bottle of vodka in an Instagram photo, with the caption "I sure wish I could drink this!" Unfortunate, obviously. So ReShonda, obviously wise to how reputation and value allotment work to tweenage brats, decided to make her daughter post with the above photo and post it to her Facebook page. Her daughter was mortified, of course. "She actually asked for a spanking instead; she begged for a spanking," Billingsley said.

Is this kind of extreme? Well, maybe. But would an old fashioned spanking really discourage the kid from being a total moron online? Probably not! So if you've got to turn your kid into a meme, or you know, shoot the hell out of her laptop, you go for it, digital parents of the world. You've got the blessing of the web's number 1 mom behind you. [ABC]

Maybe if the mother hadn't been spanking her kid, and instead formed a real relationship with her where she explained why she should and should not do things, she wouldn't have posted such a picture. And, in the end, she was smart enough not to drink it - she in fact alluded to the fact that she knew she couldn't/shouldn't drink it.
