18 Hilarious Punishments Children Have Received
Over the years, society has come up with a handful of tried-and-true punishments for misbehaving children. Soap in the mouth. Sitting in the corner. Writing the same sentence on the board repeatedly like Bart in The Simpsons’ opening credits. But as reliable as those options are, they lack a certain joie de vivre. Sending a child to their room isn’t exciting, nor does it move the needle — that’s where these Redditors come in. Parents and punishers alike have taken to the confessional platform to detail some of the not-so-cruel but definitely unusual ways they’ve seen children get reprimanded. Looking a pint-sized shoplifter square in the eyes and telling him he “ruined Christmas for his family” is an inspiring punishment that even Jigsaw would envy.
May this inspire all parents to get creative when teaching their child a lesson.
