This mom was left in utter shock after she found that her seven-year-old daughter was given a 'creepy underwear' assignment which asked the students to post pictures of their creepy underwear on the Internet. She was left so upset that she took the computer away from her daughter and immediately contacted the school's principal.
This mom took to social media to share her outrage over her seven-year-old child's "creepy underwear" homework assignment.
As reported by WPXI-TV News, Briahana Grant's daughter is a grade two student at Pittsburgh Liberty in Shadyside, Pittsburgh. The mom shares how she was left shocked while she was assisting her daughter with her homework.
Mom noticed that one of her daughter's assignments asked her to upload a picture of her dirty underwear on the Internet.
The email assignment in question read:
"POST a PICTURE of your Creepy Underwear HERE! (Or just tell us about it!) [sic]
"If you can, upload a picture of your Creepy Underwear! (If not just write about it – why does it look like, how does it act…) [sic]"
According to WPXI, mom was appalled by looking at this homework and took away her daughter's computer, and immediately contacted the school's principal.
After contacting them, she demanded that the school staffer who had the email assignment be fired over the inappropriate homework.

Speaking to WPXI in a recent interview, Grant stated: "I’m more bothered that myself, as well as other parents whose children have seen this, have to explain to their kids how important it is not to do this.
"I’m upset about it. I don’t want my daughter engaged in anything, uploading anything personal to the internet. I was so angry I took pictures of it."
Per WPXI, a school district spokesperson issued a statement on the incident, writing:
"The District is aware of a questionable activity assigned by an educator as part of a class reading of the Halloween themed book Creepy Pair of Underwear.
"The assignment has been removed, and the incident is currently under review. As this is a personnel matter, no further information is available."
The book that is written by author Aaron Reynolds, paints a story of a young rabbit named Jasper, who tries to convince his mother that he’s old enough to wear a glow-in-the-dark pair of underpants with a Frankenstein-inspired design.
