The unique parenting approach drew widespread praise online.

“Kudos to this teaching method that encourages the son to take responsibility for his actions,” commented a user on Weibo.

The boy, who has learned guitar for two years, now had a time to use his skill.

Others noted the added benefits of busking, such as improving the boy’s musical skills and boosting his confidence.

The boy’s father, Huang, explained their reasoning: “My son drew on a wall that was being renovated at his primary school. After speaking to the school, we agreed to pay for the damages. Through these street performances, we hope he understands the importance of taking responsibility for his actions.”

This creative approach to discipline has struck a chord with many, highlighting the value of teaching children accountability in a memorable and constructive way.
