Texas Dad “Not Sorry” for Making His Son Wear Sign [POLL, VIDEO]

Talk about leading by example, a father who was criticized for making his 4th grade son stand out in the street wearing a sign saying “I am A Bully” after he was caught bullying a student in school, returned to the corner himself wearing a sign that said “I am not sorry.”

Was a Father wrong for making his son hold this sign?

Jose Legares, a Texas dad, says he tried everything to get his son to understand that bullying is wrong. Finally he made his 4th grade son to stand on a corner with a sign reading, “I am a bully. Honk if you hate bullies,” The next day, after being chastised, he was back with a new sign of his own which read, “I am not sorry!!! Honk 2 stop bullying!.”

Lagares, who appeared on the street solo Thursday, tells WWLP that his son has a problem with bullying at school and that the public shaming appears to be working despite what some critics say.

“I’ve gotten that I’m a lazy parent, that’s one of the ones that really sticks out to me, that there are other options that I could have done, not knowing my story with my son,” he said. “I’m not going to allow my child to be someone else’s pain. We don’t need another Columbine.”

How do you feel about what Lageres did? What were some of the punishments you endured growing up? Take our poll below and let us know what you think.
