Honestly I don't know if I would do this or not. I do know it would not be my first choice in punishment... this is something I can't answer unless actually in the situation to where my child was a bully.

No. But my kid would be in BIG trouble if he was being a bully.

At that age, definitely not.  He looks to be between 8-10, not fully aware of his actions and the consequences.  There are SOOOOO many other punishments that could help so much more than humiliating the child.

 My first thought is, "Ain't nobody got time fo dat!"  Seriously, I doubt I would do that, but if nothing else was working, I might.  I tend to avoid punishments that are also going to punish me lol.  That doesn't look very fun, standing next to him while he does his punishment.  I'd tell him, I'll be in the car listening to the radio right over there.

For bullyin probably not, I don't think it would be very effective. I think the punishment should fit the crime. If my son was bullying a classmate I think I would just go to school with him for a few days and make him be friends with the kid he was mean to, make him say nice things to him. He would hate it, but he would make sure he didn't do it again! Lol
I think that this type of punishment would be better for older kids that are trying to be rebellious, like skipping class or intentionally getting a bad grade.
