...and sometimes "good" can hurt.

Example: It was on the news last week (anybody see it?) where a kid kept on stealing money from his parents' wallets. So the parents made him go and stand at an intersection, holding a sign that read: "I stole money from my mom and dad!"

Some people were angry about it and said the child should be taken away...but I think: Right on!

Better to have the kid hurt now than to grow up in constant pain. I applaud the parents for doing the right thing. It's going to make the kid a better person when he grows up; knowing that if he does anything wrong, there's consequences to face.:)
