You mean ""time outs""" take away their smart phones for a week..when I was younger the bully was a sheep in wolves clothing..you knock the he!, out of them they'd shatter like glass....slick4591":iy0nmatq said:Obviously this new parenting technique ain't all it's cracked up to be. Just look at the way things are going. Didn't get like this until 30 or so years ago.
We recently had two young girls 14-15 killed in an accident where a 20 yr old driving drunk hit them head on. Turns out his Mother has bailed him out twice for driving drunk before. DO you think that perhaps had he been punished enough the first time instead of bailed out this could have been prevented. If he was my son I would have whipped his butt so hard he would remember it every time he twisted a cap, and maybe these young girls would still be enjoyed by their parents. You can't be friends with your kids. You have to be a PARENT!
I got to take Bryans side on this one.Bestoutwest":2dikf3m9 said:slick4591":2dikf3m9 said:
Because this is no different than a kid making another kid stand in the rain while he stands under an awning while waiting for the bus. Putting it on Youtube is just attention getting for the father. Honestly, it's pretty childish. Take away the things the kid likes. Have a conversation why it's not acceptable. This guy could be communicating with his kid why it's not ok to be a dick, yet he's being a dick. It's pretty much a monkey-see-monkey-do situation. And I bet the biggest takeaway this kid has is to not get caught next time.
