Bullying is one complicated issue, Not only is old as time, but it’s also something that evokes strong feelings in just about everyone. We’ve seen many attempts from the schools and parents to resolve it but it unfortunately doesn’t: Who is to blame for a child bullying another child? Is it the bully? Is it the school? Is it the parents?
For my personal point of view, It’s all of them. Parents need to raise their children to be responsible and kind towards other. Schools have the duty to ensure the environment is safe for all students and finally children must understand that bullying in any of its forms is unacceptable..
Another case of bullying happened but it’s the bully’s dad who’s gone viral for his way of punishment. Bryan Thornhill came up with a brilliant way to punish his son for bullying others on the school bus.
According to Britain’s Daily Mail, Bryan made his son run to school in the rain, while he himself drove alongside him in the car.
Bryan later shared his punishment video on social media. This uncommon way of punishment quickly spread and he never imagined that it would get such reaction.
“Hey everyone, welcome to you better listen to your Dad 2018.
“My son has finally got in trouble on the bus enough to where he was kicked off the bus for three days because he was being a little bully which I do not tolerate, can’t stand.”
“The good news is guys he keeps up a pretty good mile pace, 6 miles and hour so far. Yesterday he was apparently a little rude for Michelle in the morning, so even though it’s raining this morning he still gets to run,” Bryan continues.
He also assured that since he was being tough on his son for his unacceptable actions, the boy’s behavior has improved; both in school and at home.
“This is old-fashioned, simple education. It doesn’t kill anyone. This is a healthy way for a child to be punished, because it’s training,” Bryan says. “Sometimes it sucks for then, but it’s what teaches them.”
Bryan believes his punishment will teach his children to be responsible for their own acts. But he insists that he is still a good father to them and he’s there whenever they need him.
The video has gone viral since being published on March 1 this year. In just a few days, it has been viewed 1.6 million times and has over 37,000 shares.
Bryan has also posted videos from the other two days he made his son run to school.
“Teach your children, don’t be a friend, be a parent,” is his message.
Here’s what Bryan says in the video he uploaded to Facebook:
