Is It Okay To Question Your Engagement?

  Is It Okay To Question Your Engagement? If you're one of the people who finds themselves taking the ultimate plunge during this engagement season, congrats! You might be fielding thrilled texts from your friends and family, answering questions about wedding planning (which, good luck), and soaking up every moment of this loved-up time. But after the excitement over hitching your life to someone else's for all of eternity wears off, you may find yourself questioning the whole situation. That can be a seriously alienating feeling, because this is meant to be the happiest time of your life — right?But a major life moment like this is bound to bring up some anxiety.

A mom from Harrow, Ontario, made her two sons walk to school after they were disrespectful to their bus driver. Final of 'impossible' TV quiz show Only Connect leaves fans bamboozled so how many questions could YOU have answered?

With all the studies about how “traditional” discipline such as yelling and spanking can be harmful to kids, it’s sometimes hard to know how to teach your kids right from wrong.

When a mom from Harrow, Ont. got a call from her two boys’ school about the kids disrespecting their bus driver, the answer was making them walk 7km to school the next day, holding a cardboard sign that read: “Being bad and rude to our bus driver! Moms makin us walk.” [sic] She posted about the punishment on Facebook earlier this week, sharing pictures of her two elementary school-aged boys.

Since she posted the photos, the CBC reported that it had been shared over 38,000 times with many people congratulating her on her disciplinary actions. Other commenters threatened to contact social services. Before we draw any definitive conclusions about her tactics, we have questions.

Living. This Mom Internet-Shamed Her Kids And We Have Questions . When a mom from Harrow, Ont., got a call from her kids’ school saying that her two sons had disrespected their bus driver, her answer was to make them walk 7 km to school the next day, holding a cardboard sign that read

1. Was making the kids walk to school a good idea?

On the one hand, 7km is a bit much for a morning stroll, and expecting kids to be able to focus and learn after such a tiring trek may be too high of an ask. According to the mom’s Facebook post, the walk took over two hours! We’re wondering: how early did the boys have to get up? Were they late for school? Was the tiredness or tardiness worth it make a point?

Also, what does using exercise as a punishment teach the kids? If we’re using physical activity as a consequence, kids may form negative associations with exercise. (This goes hand-in-hand with the risks of using candy as a reward and nurturing a kid’s unhealthy love of sugar.) What kind of message are we sending to kids when we present a morning walk along quite lovely snow-dusted country roads as a horrible alternative to being chauffeured around?

I never wanted my daughter to play with dolls, until this happened

  I never wanted my daughter to play with dolls, until this happened A mother who thought she didn't like the idea of dolls realizes the valuable lessons they can provide.“Feminism?” I said, surprised at her: She had three girls and was always posting intriguing questions on social media, like, “When should my daughter wear a bikini?” and other topics I’m sure I will need to confront one day. Yes, I was just another older, middle-class city mom trying my best to help my daughter become a strong girl, not obsessed with princesses, glitter and babies, able to choose who she wanted to be. And giving her dolls—especially those long-limbed, blond, buxom Barbies with a minuscule waist—didn’t seem to be a body-positive, feminist thing to do.

The mom said that her older son learned his lesson quickly after that long walk . Just last week, Bryan Thornhill, a father from Roanoke, Va., made headlines after he posted a Facebook Live video of his 10-year-old son running a mile to school in the rain as he drove slowly behind him.

Her younger son , however, had to walk a second day (although she refrained from posting photos of that on Facebook). Others are pointing out that at least she only made them walk and not run. Mom Apologizes After Accidentally Sending Son to Elementary School in Obscene Shirt.

On the other hand, this punishment seems fairly logical: the kids were being rude to their bus driver, so it makes sense that they lost the privilege of taking the bus to school. Also, the mom walked with the boys the whole way, so there were no safety issues here. The fatigue they felt from walking to school in the cold is something they won’t forget in a hurry, and now they’ve learned: Mom doesn’t make idle threats, so they’d better smarten up, next time they’re thinking of misbehaving.

2. Was the sign really necessary?

Harrow, Ont., is a small town with a population of about 3,000 people. The people driving by the kids on their walk were likely to know the kids and their family. Was it necessary for everyone in town to know that these kids were walking to school as a form of punishment? Couldn’t the walk alone have sufficed? Or is this generation so entitled that they need to be taken down a peg or two, old-school style?

3. Why post pictures on Facebook?

To make the shaming matter worse, after morning drop-off the mom posted pictures on social media of her boys on the road with their sign–pictures that went viral. Did she think letting the whole world see the kids do their penance would really teach the boys a lesson, or was she looking for a pat on the back for her parenting decision? Did she weigh up whether or not this decision to go social would actually be teaching her kids that shaming and humiliating people online is a good way to teach them a lesson?

We’re thinking that taking away the bus privileges might have been a smart shock-parenting tactic for these mouthy kids, but adding in the sign and the viral shaming? Nope. Perhaps she could have followed up the long walk simply by teaching the boys how to empathize with the bus driver and see the driver as an actual human being who deserved their respect. What do you think?
