Parents Shame Daughter with Sign

I saw this and wondered what to think. It would seem to me, at best, to be a gamble - could have a positive impact on the daughter but could also have a powerful negative one. My leaning is towards the latter -- but then what to do? What, of course, is not mentioned in the report -- as a factor in this process -- is that it is a step-father and not a father. I wonder what type of influence that has had on the family dynamic. This is not to say anything negative about the step-father -- he seems to be a caring person -- but there is always the question of where is the father.

Anyways, wanted to throw this out for your contemplation and, if you have any thoughts you would like to share, to hear what you think.

Take care

How is this anything short of abuse?

כל המלבין פני חבירו ברבים כאילו שופך דמים

All the parents have done now is teach the daughter that she has no support from her family. Where do you think she will go now for moral guidance and support?

I don't want to minimize the challenge that the parents have in dealing with this situation, but I cannot possibly see where this type of action could lead to anything but devastatingly negative results.
