(CNN) -

One strict rule at an Arkansas high school is going viral nationwide.

It's aimed at parents and their kids.

"We put a sign up on the front door to not only alert new parents, but as a reminder of why we're doing it," said Steve Straessle, Principal of the Catholic High School for Boys.

It reads "if you are dropping off your son's forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment, etc., please turn around and exit the building... your son will learn to problem-solve."

That post shared more than 110 thousand times.

"It's simply to help boys avoid the default switch of calling mom and dad when things don't go right to come bail them out," said Straessle.

The principal says that rule has actually been in effect for years, but this is the first time a sign has been posted to remind parents.
