Everybody hates bullies.
It’s unforgivable and it leaves scars. You get absolutely nothing out of it, and it is rare for a bully to receive punishment from their own parents. However, one father decided to serve justice in a very controversial way.
This is Bryan Thornhill, the badass father.
When Bryan came to know that his son got kicked off the bus and the reason was that he would bully other kids, Mr. Thornhill made sure that he never does it again.
“It was a no-brainer for me: Your son is kicked off the bus, so do you drive him to school? No — that’s a treat. That wasn’t an option,” he told The Washington Post.
You must be wondering how exactly did Mr.Thornhill punish his son.
Well, he made him run towards the school in the rain while he drove his car. He made a video of him along with some spectacular commentary.
“This right here is just old-school, simple parenting,” he said from the warm comforts of his car. “This ain’t killing nobody. This is a healthy way for a child to be punished.”
Now, the interesting part is that this punishment definitely brought a positive change in his kid.
“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,” Thornhill said.
However, since it was uploaded to social media, it sparked a debate.
“I think his problem comes from the father. Poor boy. I can’t stand you, and I don’t even know you! Something is wrong in your household,” one woman wrote on Facebook.
A man commented, “OUTSTANDING JOB we need more parents like this then we wont have so many thugs and snowflakes running around.”
It received a lot of criticism but there were parents who admired what Mr. Thornhill did. Anyhow, since the video went viral, Mr. Thornhill released a statement for the people who were criticizing him for his punishment.
“If you’ve got your panties in a wad over watching a kid jog, well I feel sorry for you,” Thornhill said. “If a kid jogging offends you, then get … off the couch — you probably need a lap or two.”
