Terri Evans was "absolutely disgusted" when she found out that her son had been bullying the new girl at his school.

The single mother took to Facebook to shame the 12-year-old in a post that soon went viral.

"Absolutely disgusted that my 12 year old son saw fit to purposefully tread on a new girls foot at school and twist his foot with such force it broke her brand new shoes (causing the heel) to snap," the angry mom wrote.

Further, she wrote that if her son Jacob "so much as breath [sic] in her or anyone’s direction in a bullying manner I will personally hand you over to their parents for every demeaning chore they see fit for as long as they do."

Using the hashtag ?#?iwillnothaveabullyinmyhouse, she added her son will have to "kiss goodbye to your birthday money" as he will be buying the girl a new pair of shoes and some flowers.

The angry mom had initially tagged her son in the post but removed the tag when the post went viral, garnering more than 58 000 shares.

"He was tagged in it before it went viral (which I didn’t realise was going to happen) so his friends could see that his actions have consequences, he is not big, clever, hard or funny, he’s a 12 year old boy answerable to his mam," the mom updated on Facebook.

The post, which has since been removed, drew mixed reaction from the public.

While some Facebook users praised the mom on her parenting, others weren't impressed, accusing Terri of bullying her son.

"I understand that you wanted to embarrass your son a little for his actions but tbh outing him on FB is a bully move. He clearly got his behaviour from you. Shame that you aren't realising that," commented Carol Cunningham.

"This is an incredibly dangerous thing to do to any child… What is even more disturbing are the huge numbers on here who cannot even see the dangers of what she has done," commented Michael Crowley.

“I don’t much care who doesn’t agree with my parenting style, my son humiliated and embarrassed a girl, regardless of his reasoning (which was he didn’t expect to break the shoe he just thought she may step out of it or stumble) that little girl still cried, for anyone’s knowledge that girl may have left her old school because she was being bullied ... then imagine how much worse my son’s ridiculous act would have made her feel," Terri responded in the post update.

“So my so called embarrassing him online is to be quite frankly nothing in comparison to the humiliation that little girl had to face walking round with a broken shoe and red eyes from crying when she is new.

“Ps ... of course I sat and spoke to him about his behaviour, I didn’t just tag him in a post and he read it! I am wholly confident this was a single occurrence which won’t be repeated.”
