SPRING, Texas - A twelve-year-old boy has been punished in Texas for his foul mouth in a very public way.
The boy stood on a busy street corner in Spring, Texas, holding a sign that read, "I was suspended from school for cussing out my teacher."
Rachel Macha is a close friend of the boy's mother. She says she made the sign, believing it takes drastic measures to get a point across.
"You try the different tactics, like grounding and taking things away. This was something different. If you can stand up and talk like a man, you need to take your punishment like a man."
Macha and the boy's mother say that other attempts to discipline the boy in the past have not worked.
