OFF TOPIC: Old School Mama!

Thursday, February 7, 2008

A teary-eyed second grader says he learned his lesson about responsibility.

His mother made him stand on a street corner across from his school Wednesday with a sign that read, "I was rude to my teacher. I can't come to school. I'm sorry."

Marcia Harvey said her son just made the honor roll at Brentwood Elementary. But she said he he had a lapse in judgement and acted up in class.

Harvey says she loves her son very much but she wanted to teach him a lesson about making good choices, and the consequences of making bad ones.

"I want him to be successful in life," said Harvey. "This is something I thought of that would maybe get his attention."

It did.

"I got to be good in school," the boy said as tears rolled down his face.

Others noticed and offered encouragement.

A crew picking up garbage drove by and shouted, "Be good, stay in school!"
