Parents In New York Could Be Punished With Jail If Their Kid Is A Bully

Most parents don’t want to get a call from their kid’s school that they are bullying other children, but if you live in New York state, that call may soon turn from unpleasant to actual fear.


A town in New York passed a law that states parents could be fined or even imprisoned if their child is found to be bullying other kids.

The new ordinance in North Tonawanda imposes a $250 fine and up to 15 days in jail if the child is proved to be a bully.


Parents could also face punishment if their minor violates the city-imposed curfew or breaks any other city law twice over the course of a 90-day period.


Does it sound a bit extreme? Maybe, but that’s the point.
