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.

    i agree. physical abuse is just a way for the parent to take their rage out on the child. parents should calm down before they discipline their kid. i can remember being stripped down as a girl in a room with multiple men unrelated to me to be beat simply for being in a room where the kids wouldn’t stop making noise. it was very embarrassing, and someone else had to intervene to get my clothes put back on.

    black parents take things way too far sometimes. yes other races do as well but sometimes it seems celebrated and encouraged in the black community, and obviously physical punishment is not working.

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