A Virginia father has triggered a debate about proper parenting after he posted a video on Facebook showing his 10-year-old son running to school in the raining as a form of punishment for bullying his classmates.
Bryan Thornhill says his son has been getting in trouble for bullying and was banned from the school bus last week. So to teach him a lesson, he made him run to school as he followed in his car. Thornhill says since his son has been running to school, about a mile, his behavior has improved and he hasn't gotten into trouble. In the video, he calls says "This right here is just old school simple parenting." He adds that it's a "healthy way for a child to be punished." But as with most things these days, some people think this not the way to handle this situation.
So what do you think? Good parenting or bad?
