A “Southern Momma” let her children — and the world — know exactly what she thinks about the corrupting influence social media can have on kids.
“I hereby denounce the effects that social media have on my children — their disobedience and their disrespect,” the woman announced before taking aim at the smartphones propped up on a tree stump.
After a fluffy dog was finished wandering through the line of fire, she blasted the phones with a single shot.
After they flew through the air, “Set ‘er up,” she said, ordering the person holding the camera to set them back up and show off her work for the day.
Her children stood by and watched, one of them occasionally giving her the middle finger.
“I also take back my role as parent to my children,” she declared.
“I refuse to be cursed. I refuse to be disobeyed. I take back my role as your parent,” she announced again, before ordering the person holding the camera to “get a shot of them.”
After the camera focuses back on the phones, she blasted them again.
“Anything left? Put it on top!” she told the person holding the camera, who dutifully collected the phone fragments from the ground.
Then, holding a sledge hammer, the woman declared, “My children’s lives are more important to me than any electronic on this earth,” the panting fluffy dog standing nearby.
“I refuse to have them influenced in negative ways, contacting people they don’t know, being involved in drama they don’t need to be in and being in trouble at school for having phones out.
“I’m done!” she shouted, before walking away.
