Father Comes Up With Creative Punishment For Daughter Who Stole

An Indiana father took to creative punishment when he had his daughter wear a cardboard sign on Thursday that read “My name is Abby Mills & I am a LIAR & a THEIF [sic]! I’ve stolen from my parents, brothers & sister. Aunts & uncles. I even stole my 9-yr-old cousin’s Christmas presents." Mills took three videos of his daughter standing in populated areas wearing the sign. In his first video, Mills said “Indiana does not have a program that allows teens to see what’s inside of a jail cell … to keep ‘em out of trouble. You can call it a little tough love or a little tough justice. This is what she’s gonna be doing today. So she can be embarrassed!”

Mills said he wasn't fazed by someone on Facebook threatening to report him to Child Services. He also said “My mother always told me that I’m gonna have a child that’s 10 times worse than me. Well, here she is. Maybe this will teach her to keep her sticky fingers off other people’s property.” He then took his daughter to a correctional center, where he found police officers willing to talk to her about the justice system and consequences of stealing.

He added “If it takes my last breath to keep her from gettin’ locked up, that’s what it’s gonna take. She’s gotta understand that I mean business, and this is my last straw before she gets put into the system.” Later he stated “I love you, I’m always gonna love you. I’m your father and I’m never gonna give up on you. I just want you to understand that.”
