Dad Posts Humiliating Confession On Facebook To Punish His Bully Son
It's hard to know if you are doing the right thing as a parent. You hope you are teaching your children right from wrong, and when they inevitably stray, you hope you are handling it appropriately. There are no easy guidebooks, and what works for one child may not work for another. This is one dad whose no-nonsense approach has a lot of people talking.
When Timothy Robenhorst learned that his son Kayden had been bullying a classmate, he took immediate action. Kayden's punishment was not to be light. In addition to a public apology made to his victim, he is now also woken up at 4:30am every morning to start a grueling exercise routine. Following that, he also must help with landscaping tasks at his father's homes.
But his punishment was to be more than just physical. Kayden's dad knows that bullying has an emotional and psychological effect, and so must the punishment. Kayden was forced to pose in this picture, and change his Facebook profile and cover picture.
The following message was also posted along with the photo:
This is what happens when dad finds out you are being a bully at school. My golden rule is you don't start fights or touch anyone unless they lay hands on you first. Feel free to tell Kayden how wrong it is to be a bully or share stories to help him understand the effects of these actions on the victoms. DO NOT ATTACK MY SON THIS IS TO BE A POSITIVE ACTION NOT NEGATIVE. *******PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS AS WELL TO HELP STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING OTHER PLACES AS WELL! THANK YOU!
What do you think of this punishment? Is this justice well served, or is Dad going too far?
