Dad's punishment for 'bully' son, 10, divides opinion

Share

A Facebook live video went viral after a Virginia dad recorded the unusual punishment he doled out to his 10-year-old after learning that the b0y was bullying schoolmates on the bus.

Bryan Thornhill recorded a Facebook live as he slowly drove behind his son, Hayden, as he ran with his school bag on his back ahead of the vehicle.

Thornhill explained in his video that his son (pictured) has been acting out in school and being a bully.

Thornhill says his son Hayden had been in trouble before and this time he chose to increase the punishment. "We're right about one mile (1.6kms) from the school so all week he's got the experience of running".

"This ain't killing nobody, this is a healthy way for a child to be punished, because it's exercise."

After announcing the redeployment, he told Reuters in Raqqa that 700 of the fighters had already gone to Afrin in northwest Syria. Ankara regards the YPG as associated with Kurdish PKK insurgents fighting in southeastern Turkey since 1984.

Thornhill, a father of two, said his efforts have been working; he had not been in trouble at school for a week after being "out his mind". "This right here is just old school, simple parenting".

In the video, Bryan says the consequences of Hayden's actions have made a difference, his son's behavior has been "much better" since he began running in the mornings, and Hayden's teachers approve of the boy's behavior.

He said he's used creative punishments in the past.

"I'm a proud gun supporter, love guns and everything else but I love my children more than anything in this world", he said.

"Teach your kids", Thornhill, who filmed the runs from inside his truck, said.

Several other members of BJP in the state, including the Vice President of BJP Youth wing SG Suryah made similar observations. What connection has India with Communists? The CPI (M) has held BJP workers responsible for pulling down the statue of Lenin.

"I can't lock them in my safe, like I can with guns", he says.

After all of the attention in the news Tuesday morning, Thornhill posted on Facebook to praise the media for highlighting what he felt was a positive story about being a quality parent. Our children are our future.

"If you get your panties in a wad seeing a kid jog, well I feel sorry for you, "he said". Being a parent is a choice.

"If them calling me a bully is what I consider parenting, then I guess I'm a bully", he continued.
