Bryan Thornhilll is being praised for his parenting skills and some are slamming him. Bryan’s 10 year old son was kicked off the bus for 3 days for being a bully. Bryan decided to punish his son by making him run the one mile to school, even one morning in the rain since he was being rude that particular rainy morning.
Bryan says what he is doing is simple, old school parenting. Bryan added “Ironically, since he’s been running to school this week, his behavior’s been much better. Teachers have approved of his behavior this week. He hasn’t gotten in trouble this week, where last week, he was just absolutely out of his mind,”
Some parents aren’t too happy with Bryan’s parenting though. Some negative comments include
“Wow I just watched this video and cannot agree with this form of punishment for a child on this day. It was raining and the kid had to run a mile. So what is the kid to do sit in wet clothes while he's at school. And then he gets sick. Also have you noticed the amount of weight in that backpack the child was carrying. Not good for a child's back at all," another commenter wrote.
While one person said
"I was in a classroom for 29 years I wish more parents were like you! Thanks for taking a stand against bulling and teaching your children lessons. Keep up the good work!" one commenter wrote.
