'I hereby denounce the effects social media have on my children': Hilarious moment Southern mom SHOOTS her 'disobedient' children's iPhones to smithereens...then pounds them with a sledgehammer to finish the job
The mother perches the phone on a tree trunk, and nails it on her first shot It explodes to bits and sends pieces flying into the grass
The camera then shows her three children, one of whom flips a double bird Mother gives speech about how she is stopping them from 'contacting people they don't know' and getting into 'drama' and trouble at school
Hell hath no fury like an angry Southern mom.
I hereby denounce the effects that social media have on my children, the mom shouts at the beginning of the video, a gun in her hand. Their disobedience and their disrespect.
This is the hilarious moment one Southern mother decides to punish her 'disobedient' children not by taking away their electronics - but by shooting them to bits
The mother perched one of her children's iPhones on a tree trunk, prepping the shot
On her very first shot the mother blew the phone to smithereens,
On her very first shot the mother blew the phone to smithereens, before having the man behind the camera put the surviving pieces back on the trunk so she could shoot again
With perfect aim she blows the smartphone to smithereens, as its pieces go flying into the grass.
Set it up, she orders, as the man behind the camera begins to gather the pieces on the ground.
Still recording? she asks, Yes mam,' he dutifully replies, showing viewers a cracked iPhone screen.
The camera shows two teens, a boy and a girl, are still here - watching as the only outlet theyve ever known to a social life disappears.

Well I guess she is not opposed to drama at home.
Like the article says she could have just taken the phones away from the kids. She could have wiped the phones and sold them on eBay.
And she is not opposed entirely to social media because she put the video on line.
Shaming has its place but I dont think doing it on the internet is a good idea. That video is out there and it is never going away.
I had to click on this to see if it was my sister.
“Southern” Mom in the UK? I wonder if she’s from Kent.
Yikes! That’s a 2nd amendment mama, you don’t wanna mess with.
Please....I look nothing like that!
I spend an inordinate amount of my time taking non-shooters to the range, investing probably thousands of $$ in ammo, introducing people to the shooting sports and trying to give non-shooters a positive impression of shooters as disciplined, responsible and safety oriented. This kind of jack-assery can undo a lot of that good will very quickly when a video like this is viewed by somebody who might be thinking about joining the firearm owning, shooting community or even just supporting it morally and politically but isn't quite there yet.
That’s a woman?
I would SO do that to my teenagers’ iPods.
oh oh.. Im in trouble. Sorry... (insert frowny face)
hugs - happy Sunday!!!!!
Funny you should say that. My daughter-in-law's daughter (my granddaughter) got caught sexting with men online. My daughter-in-law took the phone away, told her it was a privilege and that she will never have a cell phone again until she pays for it herself but not on her (DIA) dime and ran it over with her car. She had to explain to explain that these "teenagers" she was chatting with were probably pedophiles and that she could end up in a ditch or sold as a sex slave. It embarrassed the hell out of her daughter but it's better than seeing her end up in a gutter somewhere. Yeah we know she will try to pull some other shenanigans but at least the easiest method of getting into trouble has been removed.
Kudos to your DIL.
Tough love, but very necessary.
Hopefully, a lesson learned.
I usually just hold the iPads over the deep end of the pool.
She could have wiped the phones and sold them on eBay.
‘Sold them on eBay’ isn’t much of a message.
Poor people make poor choices.
