TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - A student suspended from her school for bullying faced a very different type of punishment Tuesday.
Jaclynn Ball says her daughter was suspended from her school in Toledo for repeatedly calling another classmate names, something she says she does not tolerate in her family.
So in response to her daughter's actions Jaclynn made her stand outside on Navarre and Wheeling Tuesday, holding a sign that read, "Honk if you think I should stop being a bully."
Jaclynn says there have been students in the past who have taken their own life because of bullying and she takes it very seriously, teaching her kids that it is wrong. She says her daughter knows this is unacceptable and the punishment will hopefully help her realize the problems her actions can cause.
“We never know what's going to happen from her bullying, it could be a life or death situation in this one moment. So from now on this will be her punishment and hopefully we will not have to do this again,” said Jaclynn.
Jaclynn says while some might think this punishment is extreme, she's just trying to teach her daughter a lesson… That even the slightest comments to someone can hurt their feelings… And she doesn't want this to happen again.
