Mom offers son's yard services for free as punishment for suspension

Posted: Updated:

After being suspended from school for three days, a Louisiana mother laid down the law for her son and put him to work.

On Friday, Detemtris Payne offered her son's services up to anyone on Facebook Marketplace, a platform for users to sell items for money – for free.

She said that he would do lawn service, rake yards, mow grass, pick up trash, or wash cars for a max of three hours per person.

The following Tuesday, Payne posted two more photos of her son saying he was back at school and meeting with teachers to set up a plan to keep her son on track.

The comments section of the mother's photos are littered with mostly positive responses from all over.

One woman commented, "Poor baby!" referring to the boy being punished.

The mother quickly replied to that comment and said, "No ma'am lol he thought he was on vacation," when he was suspended.

What are your thoughts? If you were in this mother's shoes, how would you handle the situation? Let us know in the comments section!
