Humiliated By Father For Poor Grades

One Miami Florida father’s unusual punishment for his son - a 7th grader is getting a lot of attention.

Michael Bell, Senior is forcing his son Michael Bell Junior to wear a giant cardboard sign on the corner of a busy intersection as punishment for being a class clown and getting F's in school.

The Sign Reads "Hey I want to be a class clown is it wrong?"... The back says "I'm in the Seventh grade and got three F's. Blow your horn if there's something wrong with that.

7th grader Michael Bell Junior really is failing three classes according to his parents and they say they have tried everything to get through to him and nothing has worked.

They say this is their last option. So Michaels' punishment for getting bad grades is spending his spring break humiliating himself -- at the busy intersection - wearing a sign telling the world he's a class clown instead of having fun playing video games with his friends.

Michael Bell Senior Says that he does has to do this so that his son does not fail out of school and become a statistic.
