Firm school system, firm parentingPosted Friday, December 5, 2008, at 11:44 AM
Since anyone can publish on the internet, one has to always question, but I presume this story is accurate. http://www.theglobeandmail.com:80/servle...
It is about a school system that stopped allowing a 5 year old from riding the bus to school because he threw an apple core at the driver. They did not say for how long, nor if there is alternative transportation available.
The second and more important part of the story is how the boy's father responded. He and his son now get up early each morning and walk the 8+ miles to school every day as a way of teaching his son that his actions have consequences.
It also makes a statement about how important an education is the father and his commitment to parenting, since he has to walk as well.
What do you think most of our parents would do?
