Shreveport Mom Makes Son Do Yards for Free as Punishment For Suspension
Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to the 2017 Mom of the Year.
Her name is Demetris Payne and she's from Shreveport. She's gained attention after her decision to discipline her son after he was suspended from school last week.
She took to the Facebook group South Bossier Online Yard Sale to offer her son's yard services for free.
The post read:
My son has been suspended for three days from school for discipline. He will do your lawn service, he will rake your yard, mow if you supply the mower, pick up trash, or wash your car for free. Maximum three hours. If anyone has a rake they would like to donate will be awesome.
Payne says that since she posted this she had to make a schedule to keep up with all the responses.
"He's booked up for this weekend, so it'll be next weekend. I got so many requests from buy, sell, and trade that I have to make a schedule," she wrote in the comments section.
There is even more good news to this story. Demetris says her son returned to school on Tuesday. He met with all his teachers and set up a plan to ensure he stays on track.
