A mother in Oklahoma was fed up with her 14 year old daughter's bad behaviour, poor grades and skipping school. Tough talk and grounding the young lady didn't achieve anything, so the mother decided on a novel tactic. She took her daughter to a busy intersection of town and made her stand on the corner holding a sign that said "I don't do my homework and I act up in school, so my parents are preparing me for my future. Will work for food."
Somewhere along the line, the message sunk in. Apparently the girl hasn't missed a day of school since!
