One Direction tickets on eBay: Australian mom delivers the ultimate punishment
The angry mother didn't just list the tickets for sale either. Instead, she told the world (and her daughter) just what the kid had done to lose her privileges. Whether you think this is good parenting or not, the message does get its point across.
It seems that the girl in question lied to her parents about having a sleepover at a friend's house. The girls then went over to an older guy's house for the night. Obviously, Mom found out. The punishment will definitely not be forgotten, as the four tickets being sold were once a birthday present.
So what do four punishment tickets for the Oct. 25 Sydney show go for? As of this writing, the highest bid stands at over 24,000 Australian dollars (that's almost $23,000 US). Maybe a higher education -- in addition to this lesson -- will be available for one wayward teen.

And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child
