Parents of children accused of bullying can now face jail time under new legislation passed by the City of North Tonawanda, which took effect on October 1, 2017. By holding parents accountable for their child’s misconduct, North Tonawanda Common Council members hope that this new law will prevent and protect children from bullying, especially in schools. Parental penalties include a $250 fine, and/or 15 days in jail, if twice in a 90-day period, their child violates any city law, including bullying. By requiring parents to have greater control over their children, North Tonawanda hopes to become a safer city.
