Right now there is a child of about 8 holding bricks up on his shoulders on his front porch. He is sobbing. It is obvious this is his punishment for something…I just wish i could understand for what and why this is neccessery.
Now I have never been one to be easy on my kid, in fact Hattie has seen her share of punishments. Ido not talk sweetly to my child when she has outright dis-obeyed but to make your kid stand on the porch holding bricks seems over the top. What’s the point? What are you trying to prove them him? It’s been 20 minutes. If you are going to teach your child a lesson, please do it in your home and please don’t humiliate him on the front porch. I’m not perfect and I have not always been a good parent, but this is ridiculous.
And now it becomes clear….a girl of about 12 is watching him and giving the punishment or atleast playing the part of the gopher. Kids raising kids…..what the fuck. If I were that little boy I would throw the bricks at the girl.
Hattie says his parents must not appreciate him. Maybe the boy should save one brick for them.
