I am so psyched my old man never thought of making me stand on a street corner wearing a sandwich board informing the world of my bad grades. As this CNN video shows, one Florida father did just that when his son got three F’s in school.
My dad definitely would’ve added that to his bag of “incentives.” And, like 7th grader Michael Bell, I was afraid of my father, so I definitely would have found myself getting honked at by passing cars.
That said, I applaud any parent who tackles head on his or her child’s lack of focus in the classroom. Some other people think such extreme measures are out of line.
What do you think: did this fed up father go to far?
