It seems bullying has become an epidemic in our society. No matter how many stories are shared or steps are taken, people continue to show unkindness and cruelty to their fellow man.
Where does this problem stem from? Some blame entertainment or the internet while others put the blame on parents for not teaching their children better. Truthfully, it’s probably a combination of things.
Thankfully, some parents are taking a stand against bullying with their own children, and they are not afraid to take drastic measures!
Well, it turns out this dad wasn’t the only parent who got creative with their punishment.
When Jenn Brown got a call from her sons’ elementary school letting her know both of her boys had been misbehaving and being rude to their bus driver, she wasn’t about to let them get away with it.
The next morning, Jenn woke her boys up early and told them to bundle up. Then, after handing them a sign that read, “BEING BAD AND RUDE TO OUR BUS DRIVER! MOM’S MAKIN US WALK,” they hit the road.
Jenn made the boys carry the sign for the entire four and a half mile walk to school.
“To show them what everyday [sic] will be like for them when they get kicked off the bus!” she said
Being seen by all of the passing cars was embarrassing enough for the boys, but it got even worse for them when the bus driver they had been tormenting drove by,
“Should have seen them when their bus driver when [sic] by and I put the sign on blast!” Jenn said.
By the time the boys finally reached their school two hours later, they had learned their lesson!
While some have criticized Jenn’s punishment as being unnecessarily cruel and humiliating, most have applauded her firm, hands-on approach to parenting.
“There’s alot of parents out there that need to start doing and showing their kids what a real parent is,” one commenter wrote.
“Awesome job mom!!” said another. “This is how you raise children.”
One thing is for sure: these boys will think twice before treating their bus driver – or anyone else – with unkindness ever again!
Do you think Jenn did the right thing? Then share it!
