Feb 21 - Tampa mom makes son wear sign announcing 1.22 GPA

TAMPA, Fla. – A Tampa mother is defending her decision to stick her teenage son on a street corner with a sign that says, among other things, "GPA 1.22 ... honk if I need education."

Ronda Holder says she and the boy's father have tried everything to get their 15-year-old to shape up academically. They've offered help, asked to see homework, grounded, lectured him and confiscated his cell phone. James Mond III's indifference at a school meeting last week was the final straw. The next day, Holder made the sign and made her son wear it for nearly four hours.

Experts criticized the move as humiliating and ineffective, and someone reported Holder to the Department of Children and Families.

Holder insists she's f!ghting for her child's education.

GREAT PARENTING if you ask me. his stupid a.ss can do better than a 1.22. That's far below average. But as you can see, if you read, the one thing they didn't try was WHOOPING his a.ss!!!!

kind of a desperate move that will def. NOT yield a real response...

shaming kids into learning will never work...like, ever...

he prolly needs some form of in-depth counseling and a tutoring regimen...perhaps even to be screened for ADD...

I don't think anyone needs to call child services on her, but humiliation isn't really a good tactic here

s**t with a 1.22 all he is basically doin is passin gym or shop or some s**t

but she really needs to get to the bottom of the problem first though

most parents confuse learning problems with just being lazy

and they refuse to believe that THEIR child can have a learning disorder

im sure its a more serious underlying issue here

the article said that they tried everything from helping him with homework to tutors, so on and so forth. This may be the only thing that will make him get it together. Can't knock her for trying. She knows her son better than anyone, so no one can say that it won't work. he is probably skipping school a lot. many of the people I went to high school skipped like 2-3 days a week and had similar grades. they weren't dumb kids, they just made dumb decisions. they thought that sh1t was funny to have 5 and 6 Fs on their report card.

She needs to get him involved in sports or something that will give him incentive to maintain a reasonable GPA.

I graduated HS with a 1.9 GPA..I just didn't care..that's all but that doesn't mean I was retarded..I was just not interested..now in college I have to take it more seriously cuz I'm paying for it so my current GPA is 3.2 ..and I feel like I'm resurrected..a new life and better future for me. Hopefully this lil guy can find himself too.

sorry but if you think looking at your report card and seeing 5 or 6 F's is funny then you gotta be pretty dumb.
