This seems like brilliant parenting to me.  Because nothing's going to send a message to a teenager like some quick national embarrassment.

Two parents in La Crosse, Wisconsin say their daughter, quote, "got fresh" with them.

So they punished her 21st century-style.  They took away her phone, used it to take embarrassing photos of themselves . . . then posted those photos on her Facebook page.

Only one of the photos has made the rounds online, but it's perfect.  The mom is throwing up a peace sign, the dad is making a stupid cross-eyed face, and it looks like they even put the photo through an Instagram filter.
