SPRING, Texas (KHOU) -- A Texas boy was forced to wear a sign after he cursed out his teacher.
The 12-year-old stood on a street corner Thursday holding a sign that read, "I was suspended from school for cussing out my teacher."
Rachel Macha, a close friend of the boy's mother, said she made the sign as a last ditch effort to make a point.
"You try the different tactics, like grounding and taking things away. This was something different,” Macha said. “If you can stand up and talk like a man, you need to take your punishment like a man."
Macha and the boy's mother say previous attempts to discipline the boy did not work.
