    Well...thats another set of parents that will be turned in to CPS for daring to care enough to engage in their childs life.

    Interesting parenting tactic. I'm curious to see whether it works.

    I doubt this guy will get in any kind of trouble with CPS, but I can imagine a situation where a kid is left on a corner on a hot day with no water . . .

    i don't know how keen i am on this.

    perhaps the punishment should have been to spend spring break studying.

    You cant teach someone something who doesnt want to learn. The first step is motivating him.

    yeah, public humiliation always works. kid might raise his grades, but most likely will never forgive his parents.

    Or he might. Heck...we recently had a story of a mother arrested because she made her son still walk to school even though he missed the bus and funny thing...first words out of his mouth were...Its my fault...I need to apply myself more, not "Im sad because my mom punished me".

    Different parenting styles. Who knows...maybe...just maybe the kids parents actually know him better than you or I and believe this might be the only thing that actually works.

    I suppose public humiliation is better than physical abuse. If this is the best that the parent can come up with, the state of his son is no wonder.

    Did your parents keep you in a bubble when you were a kid?

    Best way to teach your kids is to show them that there are consequences for your actions.

    If his grades go up, and he quits acting like a class clown in class, mission accomplished. The parents job is not to be their kids friend and hope he always think that they are cool. Their job is to instill values into him, help him achieve an education, and become a responsible adult. The kid who does his work in school and acts responsbibly has a much higher success rate as an adult than the kid with the cool parents who can do whatever he wants and repeats the 8th grade 3 times, and the 9th grade 5 times ect.
