Proper punishment? Photo shows girl holding 'I Am A Bully' sign on Gaithersburg sidewalk

Posted: Updated:
GAITHERSBURG, Md. -

A photo sent in by one of our FOX 5 viewers is generating some buzz on how parents should discipline their children.

The identity of the girl is unknown, but she is standing on the sidewalk next to the roadway on South Frederick Avenue (Route 355) holding a sign that says: “I AM A BULLY! HONK TO STOP BULLYING.”

The photo was taken on Wednesday outside of the Casey Community Center in Gaithersburg, Md.

“I think it’s okay,” said one parent who spoke to us at a nearby grocery store in Rockville. “I have five children and I would do that.”

“I don’t know if that’s very constructive,” said another person. “Probably it’s not the best way to promote positive behavior."

The person who sent us this photo taken told us the lady holding a phone in the back of the photo is the girl's mother.
