Cara Schneider came under fire when she made her daughter pose for a photo with a handwritten note saying she was selling her iPod and donating the money to the charity ‘Beat Bullying’ as punishment for participating in cyber bullying.

She uploaded it to Facebook but it was later shared on the social news site reddit where some commentators accused her of being a bully by ‘humiliating’ her daughter.
‘This is terrible parenting,’ one person said. ‘This will only make her behave worse out of spite.’
However, Ms Schneider, from North Carolina, said she was forced to take drastic action as Hailey had refused to respond to other punishments such as performing manual labour or being grounded.
‘I’m not worried about the negative that has been said about her punishment,’ she wrote on her Facebook page. ‘I am her mother and I did what I thought was best given the circumstances. I’ve tried other punishments, and this fit the crime. I don’t regret a thing.’
What do you think guys and girls? Good tactic or too harsh?
