Really? Please explain to me why the father was right in not allowing his son to attend the funeral of a fire fighter who was killed in the line of duty.
The boy had been grounded for behavior which was not revealved in the story. The story did reveal that the boy would not be punished for attending the firefighter’s funeral.
More significant is why you would arrogate to yourself the authority anonymously to "call out" a father for maintaining discipline over his child.
