This guy was literally #Sonned by his mother.  This is some boss parenting.  Nothing like some public humiliation to motivate you.  According to FoxBoston:

  • A Florida mother is using public humiliation to punish her son for getting bad grades. 15-year-old James Mond spends several hours a day standing on different street corners in Tampa. His mother forces him to hold a sign announcing his 1.2 GPA and asks passersby to honk if they think he needs an education. James’ mother says she knows this form of punishment is unconventional, but that she’s only doing it because she cares.
