Nobody likes a bully. But what if the bully is your own son?
When Timothy Robenhorst found out his son Kayden had bullied a classmate, he turned Kayden's Facebook profile into a platform for an embarrassing admission.
"My name is Kayden Robenhorst. I am guilty of being a bully at Pulaski Middle School," said a sign held up by Kayden and his dad in a photo posted March 18.
"My punishment is the following: 50 pushups on my fists, 10 incline pushups, running one mile (all at 4:30 a.m.) I will also be doing landscaping to both of my dad's houses and I will apologize to the boy I bullied in school in front of the whole class today 3-18-15."
In the comments section, the first comment was posted from Kayden's account. It reads:
"This is what happens when dad finds out you are being a bully at school. My golden rule is you don't start fights or touch anyone unless they lay hands on you first. Feel free to tell Kayden how wrong it is to be a bully or share stories to help him understand the effects of these actions on the victoms. DO NOT ATTACK MY SON THIS IS TO BE A POSITIVE ACTION NOT NEGATIVE. *******PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS AS WELL TO HELP STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING OTHER PLACES AS WELL! THANK YOU!"
Kayden's father's punishment comes amid a harder look nationwide at the physical and psychological effects of bullying on school kids.
