Face of the day

A young boy learned his lesson the hard way after his father made him hold up a sign on a busy Texas highway admitting he was a school bully.
Jose Lagares stood next to his son as he flashed a cardboard poster at the Ft. Hood Street and W. Veterans Memorial Boulevard intersection on Tuesday afternoon saying: ‘I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies.’
Although he has come under fire for his ‘bad parenting’, Lagares said his tough love approach has worked.
The fourth grader, who has not been named, apologized of his own accord to the student he bullied, NBC News reported.
Lagares, from Killeen, said his son was a repeat bully whose behavior worsened despite punishment such as grounding and even hard labor.
Public humiliation, he said, was ‘ just the final straw, and it seemed to work.’

‘Bullying is also a form of public humiliation. Maybe he understands that when he humiliates someone publicly that doesn’t feel good,’ Lagares told wwlp.com.
‘Hopefully he’ll take that with him so the next time he tries to bully someone he’ll think about it twice.’ – dailymail.co.uk
