Shocked to learn that his son is a bully, one Wisconsin father took matters into his own hands and meted out a stiff punishment. He is unlikely to receive the embarrassing news a second time.
When Timothy Robenhorst, from Green Bay, Wisconsin, was told that his son Kayden had been bullying a classmate, he lost no time in giving him a tough workout, gardening duty, in addition to instructions to apologize.
The physically demanding portion of Kayden’s 5-part sentence consists of getting up at 4:30 am and making 50 push-ups on his fists.
1. Timothy Robenhorst was shocked to heard that his son, Kayden, had been bullying somebody at school — so he devised the below punishment for him.
Then the boy has to perform ten tougher, incline push-ups, before running a mile. Making the punishment even more severe is the fact that early-morning temperatures in Wisconsin are still routinely below the freezing point.
However, Kayden’s morning regime is not the end. He is then tasked with doing landscaping work at the two houses his father owns and he will do it for an unspecified length of time.
The punishment also has its emotional and social aspect. Kayden has been instructed to apologize to the boy he bullied, in front of his entire class. That was set to take place on Wednesday, the day after his father learned of what his son had been up to.
Timothy Robenhorst then posed for a photograph with his son, the two holding a poster spelling out Kayden’s punishment, and asked people to share it on social media. To date, it has been shared more than 1,000 times on Facebook alone.
2. Kayden was made to say sorry to his victim in front of his whole class at Pulaski Middle School, pictured.
The father seems also to have insisted that the picture be posted on his son’s Facebook profile, too, where it was set as both his profile picture and cover photo.
Under the Facebook post, Robenhorst wrote:
I teach my kids they do not start fights but if someone puts their hands on them they finish it.
This is what happens when you become a bully! I don’t put up with it and at 4:30am today my son found out what happens when you pray on people for no reason and bully!
Please share this to end this behavior everywhere! Nothing changes until you take a stance and it only takes one person to start a revolution!
