MOORE, Okla. -- A mother in Oklahoma is giving her 8-year-old son some tough love after he got into a fight.
Holding neon yellow sign, the boy takes his punishment to the side of a street in Moore, Oklahoma.
The sign reads, "I picked a fight because I'm a bully."
The boy's mother says she got a call from his principal saying he asked another boy to fight because of a girl.
"Malachi never actually put a hand on the other boy, but he was the instigator. He told the boy let's fight. He's eight years old first off, there's no reason for him to be all about a girl right now and second off, assault is assault whether you're eight or 88 and I’m not going to put up with it, the mother said."
The mother says he'll be holding that sign as long as it takes for him to admit he messed up.
