A Denton couple has gone viral for their unique punishment for their daughter. 

15-year-old Madelynn was caught tyring to sneak some boys into a sleepover.  So, her parents, Tawyna Ford and Larry Sumpter of Denton thought about what would be the best course of punishment.

This is Maddi. Maddi got herself grounded. She had a choice of no phone for a month or no phone for 2 weeks and we have FULL control of her social media. She chose 2 weeks. So be on the look out for some amazing instagram posts, snap chats and Tiktoks from her parents!!

So, Tawyna and Larry decided to give Madelynn a choice: give up her phone for a month, or give it up for two weeks, but let her parents post whatever they want on her social media pages.  Madelynn chose the later, and apparently she greatly regrets the decision. 

A couple of instances include:

Madelynn is obviously ready for the punishment to be over.  Tawyna said, "After the first day, Madelynn was like, ‘I changed my mind, I choose the one month. Larry told her, ‘No. I’m too invested.' I have too many ideas. We’re sticking with the two weeks.’  He’s loving it. I think he's going to make his own TikTok account when this over.

She joked, "We’re always down to embarrass our kids!"
