Congrats on signing up to be a big brother/sister, Gozgals!
I don't think this mother deserves to be judged. Unless we have stood in her shoes we have no idea what she has been through with her son. It isn't going to hurt this boy to stand on the street wearing a sign. I see that he is wearing it and not fighting her physically trying to get rid of it. We don't know the boy or the mom but If you have ever had a child that just does what they want to do and it doesn't matter what you say or do you have no idea the hell it can be.
I give the mom credit for trying everything she can think of. It also seems that she's open to options and ideas. It may not be the best way but it sure beats either ignoring the problem or turning it around and almost praising the child for their wrong actions and making it seem like "the world is against them".
I don't see a problem. Too bad the idea of shame is almost lost in our society.
Maybe if more people were ashamed of doing bad things, we wouldn't have so much crime and bad behavior in general.
