With so many ways to waste time on phones, parents of teenagers have to come up with new ways to ground their kids for not using their time to do other, more important things. 15-year-old Madelynn Sumpter’s dad gave her a choice — she either forfeits her phone for a month or he reduces the sentence to two weeks and he takes over her social media. The girl chose the latter and the adventure began.
Madelynn’s dad took over her Instagram and he started posting photos. After a while, the news outlets started reporting about this family and they started gaining followers. Madelynn’s account now has over 17k followers, all thanks to her dad.
Scroll down to see some of the photos he posted while being in charge of the account. Madelynn’s detention is now over and she got her phone back, though we believe she uses it much more responsibly now.
