Sharon Standifird will not be ignored. (via ABC7)

Are you a parent who feels bad because you embarrassed your kid by dragging them out of a party in front of everyone? Well, after reading this, you may feel a whole lot better about yourself, because Sharon Standifird has just announced her candidacy for the title of least popular mom on the planet.

Standifird has created an app that allows parents to remotely shut down a kid's phone as punishment if the child is ignoring their calls or texts. Once the phone is shut down, it can only call approved numbers and 911, in case the kid feels so victimized by your control issues they decide to get the cops involved.
