Dad got tired of getting calls about son's behavior and decided to punish him with embarrassment
Try to imagine the frustration of a teacher who has to put up with teenagers making noise in the classroom every day, sometimes without control. It must be exasperating and exhausting.
When the senior, Brad continued to receive emails and calls from his physics teacher complaining about his noises and clutter in class, his father took action on the situation.
Then the pastor of Rockwall, Texas, United States, told his son that if he did not stop his bad behavior in class, he would have to accompany him and sit next to him at school.
Well, let's say the 17-year-old did not take the warning so seriously. But he definitely must have, because his father is apparently a man of his word and he does not like jokes. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
But the matter did not stop there if it had not been clear to Brad the obligations that he has as a student, his father took a selfie to verify the moment, same that he sent to his daughter to show him that the word is fulfilled and more when it comes to inculcating discipline.
Brad's sister, Molli, shared on Twitter a text message capture, in which her dad is seen sitting next to Brad while the young man did his classwork.
After the image was published by Molli in her twitter account it has gone around the world, calling attention to the curious case but above all, because the father acted decisively to verify and prevent his son to divert his attention from his studies.
No doubt dealing with teenagers is one of the most complicated tasks for parents, there is no guide to be and often we follow the same patterns with which we were educated.
Establish clear rules with children, as well as limits and above all complying with what has been warned, can be the best tool to make our children more responsible and disciplined.
In a similar story, Bryan Thornhill forced his 10-year-old son to run a mile to school, in the pouring rain, after finding out he was bullying people on the school bus. Thornhill recorded his son and shared the images through social media to set an example for other parents.
Apparently the punishment – now also including public humiliation – has been working, as he claims his son’s attitude has ‘been much better’, and his ‘teachers have approved of his behavior this week.’
Another father who went viral while giving parenting advice on social media was Terrel Crawford, who posted a video showing how he put an end on his daughter’s tantrum.
In general, people who have watched the video seem to support Crawford's parenting style, praising him for his calm attitude and practical approach. Maybe, we could all learn a bit from him.
