This Mom Took Drastic Measures After She Heard Her Son Was A Bully

There are so many stories of bullying in the news, some often ending up in a terrible tragedy where someone bullies another to the point where they take their own life.

When single mom Terri Day Evans from Shropshire, England learned that her son was the bully, she decided she needed to take severe measures. The Mom worked a lot and didn’t have loads of free time to spend punishing her boy anymore, she turned to a public forum to embarrass the boy in front of his peers.

The very public Facebook punishment not only embarrassed the 12-year-old bully in front of his peers but also the entire world, as the post went viral! Her son now fully understands there are consequences to his actions. This is what she wrote:

Absolutely disgusted that my 12-year-old son saw fit to purposefully tread on a new girls foot at school and twist his foot with such force it broke her brand new shoes (causing the heel) to snap. I’ll tell you something Jacob, if you so much as breath in her or anyone’s direction in a bullying manner I will personally hand you over to their parents for every demeaning chore they see fit for as long as they do…

This Mom was outraged at her sons actions and she wanted him to learn from his mistakes.

She went on and wrote:

Kiss goodbye to your birthday money as you will be buying the girl a new pair of shoes and a bunch of flowers! ‪#‎iwillnothaveabullyinmyhouse”

A heated debate was sparked on social media, as to whether this mom should have chosen such a public forum to punish her son.

Why extend the humiliation? Your poor son. This will haunt him forever. A mistake at 12, online now for all to see,” read one comment.

Another was a bit more harsh: “To out your son like this on Facebook is also a kind of bullying. He probably learned it from you. Too bad you can’t realize that.”

Terri responded with an update.

Update: To answer a few questions. Yes my son can see it, he was tagged in it before it went viral (which I didn’t realise was going to happen) so his friends could see that his actions have consequences. He is not big, clever, hard, or funny. He’s a 12-year-old boy answerable to his mam. I don’t much care who doesn’t agree with my parenting style. My son humiliated and embarrassed a girl, regardless of his reasoning (which was he didn’t expect to break the shoe he just thought she may step out of it or stumble) that little girl still cried, for anyone’s knowledge that girl may have left her old school because she was being bullied… then imagine how much worse my son’s ridiculous act would have made her feel. So my so-called embarrassing him online is quite frankly nothing in comparison to the humiliation that little girl had to face walking round with a broken shoe and red eyes from crying when she is new.”

She closed the debate with a post script.

“Ps… of course I sat and spoke to him about his behaviour. I didn’t just tag him in a post and he read it! I am wholly confident this was a single occurrence which won’t be repeated.

Her son Jacob apologized for bullying the new girl.
