You may have seen the boy holding a sign along U.S. 36 highway this morning near Wathena.
The sign read “I like to steal and lie about it!”
The boy spent about two hours with the sign, which drew some harsh criticisms and some welcoming handshakes.
Some honked or pulled over the shake the dad’s hand but others called it child abuse and one man even pulled the sign out of the boys hand before the father was able to retrieve it.
The father says he devised the punishment after the boy lied about stealing video games and a console from a neighbor’s home. He called his son “a wonderful kid” but says he needed to learn a lesson.
