(VIDEO) Dad Makes His Son Run To School After Being Kicked Off The Bus For Bullying
This dad has a zero tolerance policy on bullying, and because of it his kid's got to strap on the sneakers, stretch those legs, and get running. Bryan Thornhill, a father in Virginia decided to do some old-school parenting when his 10-year-old son was kicked off of his school bus for 3 days due to bullying, the Raycom News Network (RNN) reports.
I mean, we’re not saying it’s a terrible idea. And we’re not saying that we hope that while he’s running he’s thinking about not ever bullying other people again. Nope. We’re not saying a thing.
Before some of you parents get all high and mighty, keep in mind that the school he was running to is only about a mile away from their house. And it's like they say: It’ll build him some character!
“Ironically, since he’s been running to school this week, his behavior’s been much better. Teachers have approved of his behavior this week. He hasn’t gotten in trouble this week, where last week, he was just absolutely out of his mind,” Thornhill says in his original video.
The video, which was viewed more than 1.6 million times on Thornhill's Facebook before being removed received a lot of praise from other parents and support from those who strongly oppose bullying. However, it did receive some pushback from parents who brought up that running in the rain would lead to the child sitting in wet clothes all day and possibly becoming sick, not to mention the added weight of the child's backpack while he's running.
Well, fine. Maybe he should have at least taken the kids backpack. See the video for yourselves, and let us know what you think.
