New law would send parents of bullying children to jail

One New York town is clamping down on bullying after a new law says parents could face jail time if their children are found to have bullied others.

"The judge could give a fine of up to $250 and or 15 days in jail, but in reality what we're looking for is to engage the parents in the process and try and work on a solution", says Luke Brown. The law went into effect on October 1.

North Tonawanda officials say the law is geared toward minors who repeatedly bully other children in public places. The page inspired lawmakers to pass the anti-bullying law.

The town council hope that the law will put a stop to bullying by forcing parents to take responsibility for their children's actions, NY Daily News reported. "But we need to do a better job and we are continually trying to do that".

"Have them scared", says Kings Park's Geraldine Briggs.

The law states that if a child is caught bullying, or attacking another student, the parent of the bullying child will be ordered to pay a fine or face jail time. Bullying most common in middle school.

He says he would like to see if the new law makes a difference upstate before deciding if it's something worth considering here.
