(Newser) – A Minnesota woman was arrested this week after shaving her daughter's head and forcing her to pick up garbage and do windsprints wearing nothing but a tank top and a diaper. The mother allegedly imposed this punishment—which she dubbed "diaper duty"—because she wasn't happy with the 12-year-old's grades, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports. Neighbors called police after seeing the girl outside crying and begging to be let back inside.

By the time police showed up, the girl had been outside in the diaper for half an hour, and they described her as hysterical. They arrested the mother, 38, and her boyfriend on suspicion of misdemeanor malicious punishment of a child. One neighborhood boy said it wasn't the girl's first humiliation either—he'd seen her and her younger sister picking up garbage in diapers a month earlier.

Mom probably goes to the same denomination as that dad who shot up his daughters computer and bragged about it on youtube.

unfortunately CPS is the most dangerous place a child could be. The sad truth in this world is that you either have good parents or a very tough life. the poor kid will end up being bounced around group homes, end up getting beat up by other kids, then get in trouble for fighting back, and probably molested sexually by the adults that she's supposed to be able to trust. Incredibly sad and disheartening She's better off with psycho mom, maybe she can get into state college in a few years and leave mom behind.
