ReShonda Tate Billingsley Disciplines 12-Year-Old Daughter for Vodka Photo

Author ReShonda Tate Billingsley, who has penned 25 successful books, certainly hasn't let her fame and fortune get in the way of disciplining her child. 

It all started when Billingsley saw her daughter, 12, share a photo of herself on Facebook. Big deal, you say? Well, the photo showed the young girl holding a bottle of vodka with the message: I wish I could drink this."

That image and message didn't sit well with Billingsley, who immediately forced her daughter to write an apology and post it to Facebook and Instagram.

It seems to have worked, for the most part.

"The majority of it has actually been positive,' Mrs Billingsley told Fox. "There were some, however, who told me I was scarring my child for life, who said they couldn't believe I was [resorting to] public humiliation."

Billingsley says she's gone over the dangers of social media -- and that she was "shocked" to learn of the photo.

'Imagine my surprise when I see my bright, intelligent child smiling as she held up a bottle of Vodka with the caption 'Wish I could drink this Vodka,'" Billingsley wrote on the site My Brown Baby.

  Peculiar Parenting? Within hours, the photo had more than 10,000 shares and Mrs Billingsley had to answer for her actions too
