When his 7th grade son came home with bad grades, a Miami man made him walk down Kendall Drive wearing a sign.

MIAMI -

Seventh grader Michael Bell Jr. brought home bad grades, so his parents made him hit the streets and wear a sign reading, "Hey, I want to be a class clown, is it wrong?" On the flip side, it asks cars to honk if they think three failing grades are bad.

"I don't like it, but I know that it's my fault," said Michael Bell Jr.

Bell Jr. is failing civics, language arts and math and his Dad is not happy. So instead of a fun spring break, this teenager has a unique punishment.

"He has been screwing up in school, behavior and academics and right now I am trying to send a message to him," said Michael Bell Sr.

That message is to pull up his grades or you might find yourself sporting a sandwich board on North Kendall Drive next semester.

"Right now, this is the only thing I have left to try and reach him," said Bell Sr.
