Public shaming kids is just plain wrong!

Ryley asked me over the weekend about my thoughts on public shaming your kids and showed me this video. Here are my thoughts and my answer… I do not understand these parents that think it’s ok to humiliate their own children! I cannot imagine how they believe that announcing to the world that my child screwed up is a good form of punishment. Wait hold on it’s not a punishment, it’s bullying! You are not as a...

It might be sports, reading, camping, riding his bike or any number of things. Even though his interests may not quite be for you it’s time well spent with him if you can find your way to engage yourself in it, but another great way is to invite him along in an activity you enjoy.
