Spring, Texas (CNN) — A Texas boy is punished publicly for his filthy mouth.
Here you see the 12-year-old holding a sign that says, "I was suspended from school for cussing out my teacher."
Rachel Macha is a close friend of the boy's mother and she made the sign.
She says it takes drastic measures to get a point across.
"You try the different tactics, like ground and taking this away. This was something different. If you can stand up and talk like a man, you need to take your punishment like a man," said Macha.
Macha and the boy's mother say previous attempts to discipline the boy did not work.
