A teenage girl has been forced to stand by the side of a busy road holding a sign accusing her of 'disrespect' towards her family.
15-year-old Jasmine has had a number of behavioural issues, and the last straw for her parents came when she let a boy into her house in the middle of the night.
So they made her stand out near their home in Palm Coast, Florida, advertising her misdeeds for passers-by to see.
The sign held by Jasmine, whose surname has not been released, read: 'I sneak boys in at 3am and disrespect my parents and grandparents.'
They insist that they have tried a number of alternative disciplinary methods, but that none have worked so far.
'I've taken all her toys or her electronics away - her phone, no privileges on the TV or computer - and still she just laughs about it,' Melinda said.
