Yes, I can hear it now. You’re just about tired of reading about twerking. Well be happy this post isn’t about Beyonce.

A California mom was so upset about her daughter twerking at a school dance, she decided to publicly punish the 11-year-old.

Frances Hena forced her daughter, Jamie, to stand at a busy Bakersfield intersection with a sign that read, “I was disrespecting my parents by twerking at school dance,” ABC reported.

Hena forced her daughter to hold the sign for two hours.

“I want her to realize that she is just a child and that she can’t do that,” Hena said.

I’m not sure what type of dancing 11-year-olds are doing nowadays but Hena isn’t allowing hers to twerk until she’s 18.

“That’s ridiculous to even think that’s okay at a school dance,” Hena said. “When she’s 18, she can do whatever she wants. As of right now, that’s not something she’s going to be doing.”

And on that note, rest assured you’ll never see another twerking post on Clutch again. But I can’t make any promises about Beyonce.

You’re welcome.

  1. So was the punishment due to her disrespecting her parents or for disrespecting herself? Who were the parents more concerned about, her ruining the family image or the girls lack of respect for herself? IMO, this lesson is a fail b/c who cares that what she did was embarrassing to her family. Her family should be more interested in making sure that she first and foremost respects herself and all other things will fall in to place. But shaming a child b/c they embarrassed you as a parent has never made a child stop doing whatever it is the parent didn’t like, it just makes them get better at hiding it from the parents.

      Back in the day….disrespecting the family kept you from doing stupid stuff. So it was a win win for everyone. She may not know what respecting herself means. But I bet she knows what disrespecting the family means and the consequences that come with it.

    All this accomplished was making the little girl realize she needs to hide things from her parents. Good luck
