If Your Kid is a Bully, You May End Up Paying For It


The city of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin is cracking down on parents who can't or won't control their children. Parents of bullies could potentially be fined anywhere from $50 to $1000. "The school district can't mandate that the parents come to the table but law enforcement can,” said Rogette Koby whose kid has been bullied. “And when they do that, the parents are mandated to get involved." Supporters understand that it's less about the fine itself but hope that it's the conversation that follows (between parent and child) that brings about a change. A similar law was enacted in a nearby town in 2013. You can check out the full news segment here. So what do you think? Should there be laws that hold parents accountable when their children bully?
