A dad has handed out the most excruciating punishment to his wayward teen daughter by making her wear a Shirt of Shame.
The furious father took action after his 15-year-old repeatedly disobeyed him over curfews.
In a photo posted on Reddit
the dad looks rather pleased with himself as he poses next to his embarrassed daughter who is wearing the T-shirt he had made for her.
On the centre of the shirt there is a picture of his face and a caption reading Try Me!!
The girl was reportedly made to wear the T-shirt to school for a WEEK.
A friend of the father apparently posted the image on Reddit, writing 'What my friend made his daughter wear to school for a week as punishment for coming home past curfew. Parenting win?'
The poster, Letzball, added that the teenager had been forced to visit the launderette each day to wash the shirt so it was clean for school for the following day.
Not all Reddit users saw the funny side of the punishment, however, with one user branding it 'humiliating'.
'I must be the only one who thinks publicly humiliating your child is just wrong,' one wrote, while another chipped in '20 bucks says she changed when she got to school.'
Some WERE amused by the dad's antics though, and thought the girl would too – in time!
'In 5 years she'll wear that shirt because it's awesome,' one poster said.
We have to admit to finding it kind of funny, mainly because of the expression on his face!
- It's so unfair
Used by girls aged 13 - 18 to describe almost anything - from having to get up in the morning to being asked by a teacher to unroll their school skirt to mid-thigh. Usually muttered under the breath when the offending adult is out of earshot.</p>
- When's tea?
Usually a very important question asked <a href="http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2011/07/11/surviving-teenagers-or-why-boys-eat-so-much/" target="_blank">repeatedly</a> throughout the afternoon from around 2pm onwards.</p>
- I ran out of credit
What teenagers say when you haven't been able to get hold of them all evening, even though they promised to stay in touch. Loosely interchangeable with 'I couldn't get a signal.'</p>
- I'm doing it
Standard response to any practical request, like "Could you get everything off the <a href="http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2011/09/05/surviving-teenagers-or-what-the-neighbours-saw/" target="_blank">floor</a> in your room so I can hoover it?". Always completely inaccurate description of what's actually going on (because he or she is, in fact, texting/watching TV/catching up on Facebook).</p>
- Can I have £10?
Why? Who knows. You have become a hole in the wall: as the parent of a teenager, that's your job.</p>
- Can you pick me up?
All teenagers know that their parents secretly want second jobs as taxi drivers. They do their very best to help them practise.</p>
- Don't worry
<span style="font-size: 10pt; line-height: 12pt; ">General response to any nervous parent asking for more information about an all-night party/bad exam result/lost house keys/late coursework. Guaranteed to make any panicky adult <a href="http://www.parentdish.co.uk/2011/10/31/surviving-teenagers-worrying-if-they-ll-ever-get-jobs/" target="_blank">worry</a> even more.</span></p>
