When I heard her idea, I was not yet a mom but you better believe I laughed my ass off. Can you imagine? Your child as a teenager and them bringing home a date or friends and then leading them down the hallway to view their "wall of shame"? I giggle every time I think about it.
I never actually considered doing this to my own child. Then, I had Berlyn. She is an angel. *cough*...Usually. But when she isn't? I do take pictures of her so she can see how ridiculous she is being/acting. It seems to work once she gets an eyeful of a hideous picture of herself. I know I learned MY lesson years ago from all the traumatic shots my mom had of me in family albums.
Will I really construct my own "Wall of Shame" for my daughter? Not sure yet. Only time will tell. Depends on how wild of a teenager she ends up being. Then, it will be my revenge.
I think being able to embarrass your child is a parent's right and more often than not, it is so fun.
Here are a few of my faves...and one day, will probably be some of Berlyn's least faves.
