Define what you mean by "effective".
Depends on what "effect" you are seeking to create.
Depands also on the kid who is getting that punishment, too.
For some kids this will be highly effective.
For others this might be the worst least effective thing one can do.
Or are you of the opinion that the same punishment works for everybody equally well?
Of course not. What I am asking is based upon this tiny blurb in this paper, do you think this kid will steal again?
This is a message board. We are permitted to conjecture.
It could have been an isolated incident anyway
I think these punishments just show how bad a parent you are
Now that's a good parent who loves his kid.
Some will claim the kid's getting off easy, others will claim it's tantamount to torture. This aught to be interesting............
I don't know if it's effective punishment. Effectiveness of punishment is likely individualized. I guess the parents will see.
But, it wouldn't surprise me if someone reports the father to CPS.
Yep. That's why I posted it. I do believe a little bit of shame builds character. I don't think I would choose the same punishment, but I've never caught my kids stealing.
One of my kids was involved in a vandalism incident and we had him spend the day assisting the custodian at the building. I That worked.
I'm not a parent, but that sounds perfect. When possible, I believe punishment should include amends and reparations, too.
Seems a little excessive to me. A good thrashing never hurt anyone, but being made a prolonged example of like this by a loved one is sure to breed resentment in the long run.
