The tricky part about disciplining kids is picking a punishment that will make the lesson memorable. Not a problem for this dad.
Have you heard the term ‘natural consequences’?
It’s a real-world kind of punishment. For example: if you break a window, you pay to replace it. If you make a mess, you clean it up. That sort of thing.
Well, one dad had a kid that was acting up on the school bus. She was bullying other kids.
She was kicked off the bus. More importantly, she was kicked off for the second time.
Dad wasn’t amused. He figured out a way to drive the point home.
If she was kicked off the bus, she wasn’t going to get bailed out by having dad drive her to school. What lesson would that teach? Riding in a car is far more comfortable and convenient anyway.
Nope. He wasn’t giving her the easy way out.
He was sending a message that bullying is NOT tolerated in his house.
And when his little darling announced her suspension from riding the bus, saying dad ‘had to take her to school’ next week, the little darling learned the hard way that wasn’t the way things were going to work out for her.
A five-mile walk to school can leave a lasting memory.
A memory that could change her life forever.
So, did it work?
Since the punishment, Kirsten now picks up on bad behavior she sees on TV and tells her dad, ‘That’s bullying that’s going to hurt somebody’s feelings,’ Cox said.
Kirsten apologized on Monday to the other student involved.
We could use ten thousand more dads like him.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
