A 13-year-old boy made fun of poor children, so his mom made sure to teach him a lesson he will never forget.
Cierra Brittany Forney shared her story on Facebook where it insanely went viral, gaining more than a million likes and shares since she wrote it last year.
“So lately, my 13 year old son had been acting a little…entitled. Acting like he’s too good to shop at Wal-Mart or making snarky comments about kids at school who shop at the goodwill and quite a few other things. I don’t tolerate that.”
She continued: “Today, he took his own 20.00 to the goodwill to buy clothes to wear the entire week to school. Whatever he found is what he would have to wear. He isn’t happy and shed a few tears but I firmly believe in 15 years he will look back and laugh at the day his Mom made him shop at goodwill.
“I want to teach my kids that money isn’t everything and if you have to degrade other people because of where they shop, then you too will shop there. Side not, I love the goodwill!!”
Most people gave a positive reaction to the way she handled her son’s behavior but for some reasons, we can never really escape from trolls who always have something negative to say.
“All the public shaming and saying my son will grow to hate me, sue me and later kill me are just awful,” Cierra wrote.
“My son and I have an amazing relationship.
He tells me everything and trusts me wholeheartedly.I DO NOT care what anyone has to say about my post because I SOLELY did this to help my son become a better man. All the positive feedback and comments have brought me to tears and so have all the negative ones.
All that matters is my son is completely 100 percent okay with what happened.”
Cierra added: “My son has learned a valuable lesson from this AND he is rockin’ the button-up shirt he bought from the Goodwill with PRIDE today!!!”
