Mother and daughter – Lessons learnt the hard way!

My mom

In an attempt to show her daughter how quickly a picture can spread over the internet, one mum’s “lesson” quickly backfired.

Kira Hudson posted a picture of her daughter, Amia, on Facebook holding a sign dated 18/03/14, saying, “Mum is trying to show me how many people can see a picture once it’s on the internet,” WHNT reports.

Mother shames daughter on the internet, teaches herself a lesson.

    oh dear! Sometimes the immigrants (our generation of adults) need to do a bit more research! I think our kids (digital natives) have it over us! I don’t think shaming ever works. Education and dialogue is far more effective. What if mother and daughter had done the experiment together without shaming or using an identifiable photo?. Maybe the message would have been much better received!
