Mothers, am I right? So embarrassing.
After she discovered her son was copying his classmates’ homework, a Wenzhou mother, surnamed Lin, surreptitiously snapped a photo of her son in the shower and uploaded it to WeChat, according to IFeng.
In the message accompanying the photo, Lin wrote: “This boy was copying homework. I uploaded this photo to warn him. His backside is showing this time, if he copies again next time it will be the front.”
Responding to accusations that humiliating her son publicly might damage his self-esteem, Lin defended her actions, saying that the boy now knows “right from wrong”.
On Weibo, netizens begged to differ:
@我是一只辛福的小猪: Are we sure this horrible mom is not psychopathic?
@幸福黄杨河: Twisted lesson, this is a disguised form of abuse!
@朝阳木仁: She’s not Edison‘s aunt is she?
@追逐的那片云: This mother is sick.
