Cindy Bjerke, a mother from Fargo, North Dakota is so fed up with her 18-year-old daughter's behavior that she has gone on Facebook to get rid of her Katy Perry concert tickets. "Daughter is a spoiled brat and doesn't deserve these tickets," Bjerke said on a post written at the Fargo/Moorhead online garage sale Facebook page, where she had also offered the tickets up for sale. The tickets for the Aug 23. concert at the Fargodome, were worth around $110 , but Bjerke chose to undersell the pair for $90. It is unclear what sort of behavior prompted the punishment, and Bjerke has chosen not to disclose this information. Some parents, though, were not impressed with the public punishment, among them is Elgie Eagleman,from Fargo, who spoke with local tv station WDAZ to air his sentiment: "I think that's a personal issue where it should have been handled privately because on Facebook, everyone's going to see that," Eagleman said. Parenting experts also criticized the way the punishment was done. "It's not just that humiliating people, of any age, is a nasty and disrespectful way of treating them, It's that, humiliation, like other forms of  punishment is counterproductive. 'Doing to' strategies -as opposed to those that might be described as 'working with' -- can never achieve any result beyond temporary compliance, and it does so at a disturbing cost." Alfie Kohn, author of  Unconditional Parenting: Moving From Rewards and Punishments to Love and Reason told the Huffington Post. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
