WALLACEBURG, Ont. -- Another parent has chosen public shame as pubescent punishment.

After getting called for the third straight day about his son's behaviour in school, Casey Holcolmbe had his son Brian stand on the street on Thursday and hold up a sign that read: “Honk if you agree with my dad that I should behave in class. I don't think I should.”

“A little public humiliation doesn't hurt anybody,” the dad said as he watched the Grade 9 student carry out his punishment.

A steady stream of cars and trucks honked their horns in support.

Casey Holcolmbe said he was unsure if it was going to be on ongoing thing.

Earlier this month, a California mother forced her 11-year-old daughter to stand at a busy intersection holding up a sign saying she'd disrespected her parents because she twerked at a school dance.

Wallaceburg is a town of about 10,000 located approximately 300 km southwest of Toronto.
