Finally, Some Real Parenting Around Here

Finally, Some Real Parenting Around Here

Texas father Jose Lagares was none too pleased when he learned his fourth grade son was bullying his classmates. So he made him hold up a pink sign at a busy intersection that read, "I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies."

Lagares described bullying as a form of public humiliation, and said that he wanted his son to understand what it felt like to be publicly humiliated. He cited Solomon Harris, a local student who had committed suicide because of bullying along with the Columbine shooting as reasons he came down hard on his son's bullying. 

I love this. This father punished his son in a manner fitting of the crime. In a time where it feels parents constantly find excuses for their children's inappropriate behavior, this father stood up and punished his child. I think our society could benefit from some more parenting and a little less excuse making.
