An Indianapolis mother has dished out a dose of tough love with a very public punishment.
Natasha Scott made two of her children hold signs that said they had "sole from my mother" after she found out the children took a gift card she received for doing a good job at work.
When she tried to use the gift card, she found out her children already had.
The children held the signs on Tuesday during rush hour at a busy intersection near downtown Indianapolis. Scott said she hopes they learned a lesson and will never steal again.
"They've been embarrassed and crying
because all the cars are, like, 'Go mom! Good job teaching them.' Even the
police stopped and was, like, 'Good job mom!'" Scott said.
One child said, "Yeah it's going to change because I don't want to stand out here again cause it's like real embarrassing."
And the other, holding a sign that said he stole from his step-mom, said, "Embarrassing. I should have never did it. Um, I should know better."
