Let me share a middle school story…

“I grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pa. When I was in 7th grade, my school principal and my father were friends. Not everyone thought it was cool that my father was a police officer, and I was bullied a lot for it. One day I made a poor decision (in response to being bullied), and got sent to the principal’s office. The principal then called the police station to contact my father and asked him to come in for a meeting. Considering I was trying to avoid being known as ‘the police officer’s son’ this made things worse when he showed up in his patrol car for the meeting. Part of my consequence from my father was to walk the 1.5 miles home from school that day, giving me more time to think about my actions. It’s hard to know what was worse: being bullied or having my police officer father called when I was in trouble”
