Call it a full-court parenting press.

One traveling father used great seats at Friday’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Charlotte Hornets game in Charlotte to call out his son on national television for not cutting it in the classroom.

This is better than putting the kid on video with his image all over the internet---THAT is what I consider shaming.

We don't know WHO this kid is---only those folks who knows who his dad is will know who the kid is.

If this doesn't motivate the kid, dad may try something else. Who knows.

So, I say...GO, DAD!   ;)

Instead of going to a NBA game, maybe dad should have been home helping the young man with his homework....

That is one perspective but who's to say dad doesn't already do that?  :shrug:

Not saying that he doesn't or didn't. But if you got the time and energy to invest making this gigantic sign and trust me, I get the tough love thingie too. I'm just saying, maybe help him out a bit more....maybe it's something he's just not getting.

I did this with the twins. They were not getting the algebraic logic at al the first part of the school year. We sat down for about 30-45 minutes each night, reviewing class materials, Khan Academy and some '87 Homework Problems until it clicked. Once that foundation was in place, it's been a school year of 95%+ on every assignment, quiz, exam and assessment.

Perhaps he has a lazy kid who is not completing assignments?

Perhaps he is not the custodial parent.  The custodial parent might not want him around to help with homework.

Dude, I know nothing about this young man aside from what his dad blasted him for. What type of student? I dunno. Wishing them all the very best going forward and that his grades improve in both the short and long term.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
