A mother of South Carolina, is causing controversy over the form of punishment of her son.

The mother shaved her son’s head and dressed her son in girls’ clothing, including a tutu. The mother also wrote the word “BAD” in black marker on the back of the boy’s head.

The mother then marched the boy, whose age has not been released, through Walmart on Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill about 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, while he was dressed as a girl.

When confronted by police, the mother said that she did so in an attempt to embarrass him, according to a police report.

According to police, the woman told officers that she was punishing her son for fighting and make homophobic remarks in school.

She told police that her son was having behavioral problems and corporal punishment was ineffective so she tried to embarrass him to change his behavior.

So far, no charges have been filed against the mother. Rock Hill police notified the department of social services about the incident and they are investigating the family.
