Mom Publicly Shames 11-Year-Old Daughter for Twerking at a School Dance
[ Life]

The only thing more embarrassing than the thought of an 11-year-old girl twerking on some guy at a school dance is the embarrassment of having to stand on a street corner holding a twerk-shaming sign.

In damn you Miley, look what you’ve done news, a woman forced her 11-year-old daughter to stand at an intersection holding a sign that said “I was disrespecting my parents by twerking at a school dance.”

“That’s ridiculous…to even think that’s ok at a school dance,” said Frances Hena of Bakersfield, California. “And the school didn’t even call me and let me know that it was going on.”

Apparently, Hena was notified of her daughter’s twerking by a friend.

“I also want her to realize that she is just a child and she can’t do that – she just can’t. Every parenting is different. Um, I mean, what am I supposed to do? Whoop her and you know, get the cops called on me? I mean, I think this is embarrassing, I do. I’m embarrassed for having her twerk at a school dance.”

Yeah, you probably shouldn’t “whoop” her. Maybe ground her? Give her a stern talking-to? Take away her internet privileges? I’m not sure about the whole standing on the street corner with a sign thing. I mean, she’s freaking eleven.

    I don’t like twerking and I think it is moronic. However, what this woman did to her daughter is equally moronic.

    It will only alienate her daughter and cause her daughter to resent her for the rest of her life. The mature thing would have been to sit her daughter down and discuss why twerking is not a good thing. Then to tell her daughter how much she is loved and how she is worth so much more than she knows. At the end of the day, even though twerking is not that great. It isn’t the end of the world.

    In the end, this is about the Mom and her issues. If she was actually embarrassed by the incident, she would have not let the whole world know about it. The mom is just looking for fame of her own.

    All kids do stupid things. Showing kids how to recover from doing things in a positive manner is the way to go. Embarrassing them does not help anything. In fact, it may lead to a lifetime of therapy.

      I don’t agree with you @Hmm. Parents used to be stern and have these talks before the talks should even take place. Every parent today and I mean every parent is just passive and let’s their child or children think they are special and that the world revolves around them and their family. What needs to be taught is that you earn one’s respect and not expect it! What needs to be taught is that being self absorbed only leads to therapy not shaming!

        oh come on… If the worse thing your kid does is twerk… you’ve got an angels on your hands.. human hips, buttocks and the like are NOT shameful things… I hope she twerks every time her helicopter has her blades turned.

      • @Obi-1

        You forget that the oppressive stern nature of our 1940′s and 1950′s lead to all the rebellion in the 1960′s. The people who were born in the 1960′s are now in charge today and look at how messed up this country is.

        This also has nothing to do with respect. In the 40s and 50s you were taught to respect everyone. The person could be a mass murder behind closed doors and you were still taught to respect them just because they were an adult.

        Like you said —- respect is earned and not forced on someone. It is also is not acquired by shaming a person in public and in this case … nationally.

      This mother has my vote. As to all you who think sitting her down and talking to her would work, have you really forgotten being a pre-teen and a teenager? I haven’t and I am 63. Had I pulled this and only gotten a talking to, I would have been off and running as soon as that talk ended. I would have been bragging about how I got away with it. This kid is going to think twice about pulling another stunt. That mother is out to raise a responsible child. And it was not the stern 40′s and 50′s that caused the rebellion of the 60′s. I know. I was there. It was women being fed up with being treated like slaves. It was the Vietnam war. But most of all, it was the introduction of the birth control pill and weed. Why did we act out? Because we could. Simply that. Because we could.

  • Only in America

    Only in America, would a person think by shaming their 11-year old daughter nationally would that result in a good outcome.

    I guess most people forget about all those talks Christ had about forgiveness and compassion. Yet, we call ourselves a christian nation.
