Not all mothers are physically abusive, Dan

Some rely on psychological warfare.

The AP reports that Tasha Henderson put her daughter out on a busy street corner last week in Oklahoma City, holding a cardboard sign that read: “I don’t do my homework and I act up in school, so my parents are preparing me for my future. Will work for food.”

Coretha’s grades were bad, her mother says. Now her school attendance is perfect.

Nothing like a street corner to teach a young girl to take pride in her work.
