A Georgia woman is receiving praise from Facebook users after her post on teaching her son a valuable lesson went viral.

Cierra Brittany Forey posted a photo of her son inside a Goodwill store Sunday morning. Since then, the post has tallied more than 34,000 shares and 12,000 comments.

Forey wrote that her 13-year-old had been acting "entitled" by making snarky remarks about his classmates and claiming he was "too good" to shop at Walmart.

"I don't tolerate that," Forey wrote.

So the mother took her son to Goodwill and told him his own $20 would buy his outfits for the week.

"Whatever he found is what he would have to wear. He isn't happy and shed a few tears but I firmly believe in 15 years he will look back and laugh at the day his Mom made him shop at goodwill," Forney's post said.
