With Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, it’s hard to keep kids’ attention for more than five minutes these days.
But one mom totally used that to her advantage to punish her 18-year-old kid.
She put the tickets up for grabs on the Fargo/Moorhead Online Garage Sale page, a private group.
“Daughter is a spoiled brat and doesn’t deserve these tickets,” Bjerke wrote. “For sale, 2 Katy Perry tickets for August 23rd in Fargo. Section 50, Row G, Seats 3&4. Paid $110, will take $90.”
The post quickly racked up 200 likes and the tickets sold within five minutes, however, some are criticizing Bjerke’s punishment. The post has since been removed from the page, but other parents believe the family matter should have been privately handled.
Bjerke defended her decision to local news station WDAZ: “I think a lot of parents are like me where they feel like they’re being bullied about how they should parent their own children. It doesn’t matter what side you’re on, you’re always wrong to somebody.”
