Dad Publicly Bullies Son To Shame Him For ... Bullying

Dad Publicly Bullies Son To Shame Him For ... Bullying | Bullying Across the US | Scoop.it

Honk if you hate bullies?

On Tuesday, a boy accused of bullying his schoolmates was forced to stand on a street corner with a humiliating sign as punishment for his behavior, NBC affiliate KCEN-TV reports.

The fourth-grader's father, Jose Lagares, made his son hold a large homemade sign that read: "I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies."

"Bullying is also a form of public humiliation," Lagares, of Killeen, Texas, told the station. "Maybe he understands that when he humiliates someone publicly that doesn't feel good. Hopefully he'll take that with him so the next time he tries to bully someone he'll think about it twice."

He taught his kid a lesson, but I think he could have been a hypocrit. He is bullying his son...to stop bullying? I  think it is great he had his son stand out and take blame for what he did in public. He will probably never bully anyone ever again because of what he had to go through with. overall, i think that the dad went too far, but the results will be posotive.

Heroic boy punished for stopping knife wielding attacker at school

Doing what’s right doesn’t always mean following the rules.

Seventh grader Brian Maclean stopped a bully from stabbing a classmate and was reprimanded by the school for his act. Brian’s mother in the interview was incredulous, stating that “we aren’t raising our children to be strong. Who will be our heroes? Our firefighters? Our Army guys?

 

Who indeed?

When Parents of Bullies Don’t Teach Their Children Empathy

When Parents of Bullies Don’t Teach Their Children Empathy | Bullying Across the US | Scoop.it
Ever wonder where the parents of the school bully went wrong?

 

Ingrain Empathy to Prevent Bullying

 

Bullies are sadly lacking in empathy; this is obvious to the layman, to other children, even. Parents can't teach empathy by lecturing about it. They must BE empathetic towards their children, and they must put their kids in circumstances that cultivate and grow empathy within them (such as having their kids do volunteer work with those less fortunate).

 

Forcing your kids to share their toys won't cultivate empathy. In fact, when parents get angry about the sharing issue and force it upon their kids, this is a form of bullying on the part of the parent. Bullying behavior can be learned from parents. But so can empathy. It's difficult for bullying and empathy to co-exist in the same child's body.

Famous and Successful People Were ALSO Bullied In School ... | Bullying Across the US | Scoop.it
For bullied kids, it's hard to imagine a life without anxiety and fear of taunting or physical abuse, but the fact is, even in what seems like the worst bullying situations, it does eventually get better.

is lamentable to see such attitudes, but bullying is real, and exists in several places, and it is certain that all kinds of people already suffering, we can see that even atistas already suffered or are suffering. bullying is a crime and practitioners should pay by its actions.
