  • Ind. basketball dad knocks coach unconscious because he forced daughter to run laps
    By Cameron Smith | Prep Rally – Fri, Mar 16, 2012 11:05 AM EDT


    An Indiana father is facing serious charges after launching a brutal attack on his daughter's assistant middle school basketball coach for the coach's implementation of an incredibly simple and traditional practice: He made her run laps in the gym.

    Michigan City basketball parent Shelley Miller — Michigan City PoliceMichigan City basketball parent Shelley Miller — Michigan City Police

    As reported by South Bend-based TV network WSBT, Michigan City, Ind., basketball father Shelly Miller, aged 37, attacked Michigan City (Ind.) St. Stanislas School assistant middle school girls basketball coach Jeffrey Yackus shortly after one of the team's daily practice concluded.

    According to WSBT, Yackus had punished Miller's daughter and another player who argued with each other during practice. Yet the only punishment that Yackus meted out was making the two girls run laps in the school's gym.

    It appears that pushed the elder Miller over the edge. When he went to pick up his daughter later, she told the elder Miller about her punishment and he immediately attacked Yackus and punched him in the face.

    That first punch apparently leveled the assistant coach, knocking him to the ground, where Miller climbed on top of him and repeatedly punched him in the face and head until he was completely unconscious.

    by having them join a country club. all those kids from back in the day whose parents were members of the country club are all either dead, drug addicts, or just complete failures.

    When I was a kid my whole block would get you if you did something bad then they will tell your mom and pops and then they would get you. But the block is not the big family like it used to be.

    Sheltering the kids.

    Gotta let them know there are winners and losers.

    Everything is not candy apples and spongebob

    Have to give them self identity There is no such thing as a colorblind/post racial society(In the same breath they can accept and appreciate others differences.

    Not knowing your child.. and not holding them accountable. is a great way to set em up for failure also

    Keeping them away from their fathers

    This is a good one. I will never understand a woman who does this. As long as he isn't harming the child, he should have as much access as he wants. Kids NEED their father.

    God bless you

    Having the kids participate in events where they recieve rewards, trophies, certificates, etc when they did not accomplish something that warrants it. (Example: Everybody gets a trophy in a race, regardless of what place you came in) That makes the kid have a false sense of entitlement, plus when things dont go there way in the real world, they are gonna go out like a chump instead of manning the f*ck up and figure out how to get over it.

    Putting thier kids on medication (downers) at the doctors advice, a kid is gonna be hyper, you have to find a way for them to channel that energy into something constructive and positive

    What do you do when you have exhausted all options. My ex's son is bad as fuck, she has tried it all and it still don't work. She finally put him on meds, and that shit ain't working either. Maybe he is just going to be a lil terrorist.

    Telling your kids that everybody is their "uncle" and "cousin".

    It's one thing when it's ya' boy you grew up with since you was like 3 and you be like "this person is like family" but when ya' kid grow up thinking everybody they relatives, things could get a lil' fucked up.
