Amazing how those Emails, Twitters and Facebook can spread like wildfire for the
fun. Your famous!
What a cool Father!
How is this guy cool? Using his son to get attention? Love doesn't purposefully
embarrass. I think the son didn't need dad to stand on the sidewalk in a wedding
dress waiting for a group of spectators to see it to feel his love. Just tell
him you love him and goodbye. Who needed the audience?
I think the news media owes this father an apology for their portraying him as a
father trying to punish his son with embarrassment. What a parent often times
does for their child the children often construe it as an embarrassment. I'd bet
that most every child who seen this kind of attention the son was getting would
be happy to trade it for all they know.I think the son finally got
what the father was trying to tell him, life is not embarrassing, it is a trek
and memory maker. The news media should not treat this in a more
positive story and keep the term punishment out of the article.
@K - If you'd read any of the other articles about this guy, you'd know that he
and his son have a good relationship, but he wanted to do something extra
special. And, contrary to some article headlines, the son has said that while he
was embarrassed at first, he and everyone on the bus started to enjoy it after a
while. I do agree with you that simple gestures are important, and
need to be done constantly. But I think what this father did for his son is
something special that they, and everyone who saw him do it, will remember for
years to come.
I think that this guy is a riot! If my dad did this, I would definitely be
embarassed at first, then when I saw how much other people enjoyed it, my
attitude would definitely change. I think it's very funny. What an
More notariety for a bully. What a shame we're raising generations of people
who think it's OK to bully and embarrass, as long as it's done in 'jest'. What
in the world have we become today?
Whatever happened to this guy's leg??? Has anybody bothered to ask him that???
This story is the best of the Year.More Dad's should be like this
guy!========= [Shame on all the nay-sayer commenting on

of $$$ money, ahead of the Love of a caring Father.
