An American mother of three confiscated her child's phone, set up it up as a target on a tree, and shot it. She also crushed the remains with a hammer.
Offering an explanation for her action, the mother, from the southern USA, said: "My children’s lives are more important to me than any electronic on this earth.
"I refuse to have them influenced in negative ways.
"Contacting people they don’t know, being involved in drama they don’t need to be in, and being in trouble at school for having phones out," she huffed.
After accurately firing at the phone, the woman still brought out a slegehammer and whacks the phone to further destruction, just to be sure it is well and truly finished.
