Should Parents of Bullies Be Fined $500 For Not Controlling Their Kids?
How many times have you heard, "Your son/daughter is so great! They're well behaved, well spoken, just a dream to work with!" and you think, "Are we talking about the same kid?" Well, that's pretty normal, and it's because parents do a pretty good job of raising their kids. But sometimes, things don't go right and you're raising a bully. Should you be blamed? A State Representative in Pennsylvania wrote a bill to do just that. It punishes you if your kid is a bully.
According to Fox 8 in Cleveland,
The first time a child is caught bullying someone, the school would be required to notify the parents of how the school handled the situation. For the second offense, the parents would have to take a bullying class and attend a bullying resolution conference. The third time, the parents would receive a court citation and have to pay a fine of up to $500 along with the possibility of performing community service.
Is this a good idea or a bad idea? Discuss.
