We should always teach the best possible values to our children. They are the adults of the future, and need to learn to respect others around them. Unfortunately, even if we have the best intentions in the world, there are always limits to what we can do. There are external influences that can change the education that children received at home. What would you do, for example, if you knew your child bullies his classmates?
Son bullies other children
A Florida father was heartbroken when he learned that his 13-year-old son was bullying other classmates. The father might have let the school administration scold him, but he decided to punish the boy with his own hands. The man wanted to do something so that the boy would never again intimidate others.
So the father decided to put his son Jacob on the side of the road with a sign saying “I’m a bully. Honk if you hate bullies.” This was a brilliant idea from the parent to make sure the 13-year-old understood the lesson. “I imagined a solution that would embarrass him and make him feel like the ones he dared to intimidate.”
Population against bullying
To Jacob’s misfortune, it seems that the majority of the population is against bullying. As he lifted the poster, hundreds of cars began to honk. A driver even stopped his car near Jacob and his father, Yager, to talk to them. In addition, a police officer praised Yager applauding for the cruel but effective initiative.
However, some people also criticized the father. “There was a woman who came to me and called me every name I could imagine. I was doing the best, but we can’t always please everyone.” As for Jacob, let’s bet he understood his lesson well. What did you think about the punishment? Share your opinion with us in the comments!
