Bullying has become a full-fledged epidemic, and many great parents are taking a stand if it means rerouting their kids’ bullying tendencies.

In so many cases, teasing and taunting is based on such superficial things — like the clothes someone wears and the stores in which they buy them.

Cierra Forney noticed her 13-year-old son displaying some troublesome behavior. She’d catch him making snap judgments about his classmates who would buy their clothes from stores like Walmart or Goodwill. The mom from Braselton, Georgia, grew so disappointed in him that she decided to teach him a lesson in entitlement and gratitude.

Cierra explained what happened in a viral Facebook post: “So lately, my 13-year-old son had been acting a little… entitled. Acting like he’s too good to shop at Walmart or making snarky comments about kids at school who shop at the Goodwill and quite a few other things. I don’t tolerate that.”

So she took her son to their local Goodwill. Watch the video below to see what she had him do there.

Cierra’s Facebook post was shared tens of thousands of times. Her clever form of punishment hit home with readers everywhere, who commended her amazing parenting techniques.
