Mom calls daughter “spoiled brat,” sells her concert tickets

A North Dakota mom went public when she disciplined her child, selling her daughter’s Katy Perry concert tickets because she “is a spoiled brat and doesn’t deserve these.”

Cindy Bjerke advertised the sale in a closed Facebook group, “Fargo/Moorhead Online Garage Sale.” She paid $110 for the tickets, but sold them for $90.

The post received mixed reviews, with some praising her discipline style and others criticizing it.

Bjerke stood by her decision. “I feel like a lot of parents are like me, where they feel like they’re being bullied on how they should parent their own children,” she told WDAZ.

An administrator later removed the post from the page because it was too distracting.

    I think she did the right thing. She obviously has a kid who needs to be taken down a few and this is a great way to do that. It has nothing to do with how you raise them but allot to do with society and the messages kids get that they have to have everything. Good job Mom, she’ll remember this the next time she acts like a spoiled brat.

    I think she did the right thing. Too many kids now feel entitled to have whatever they want, without limitations. They don’t feel they should do chores, just want to be princesses and bark orders.

    My mother did the same thing to me, although she did not feel the need to publicly humiliate me by advertising the situation to the entire world. Why do we feel that we need to let EVERYONE into our lives? One of the first rules of leadership is to praise in public and punish in private./
