A blush-worthy punishment: How would you feel if your mom did this?

For centuries, parents have experimented with methods to teach their kids the concept of right and wrong. Every once and a while, a new solution...

This is so terrible! I can't believe people can actually do this! yes, it makes the kids learn their lesson, but its humiliating! they have to think of how the kids feel about this. how would they feel about this if the positions were switched? and that one couple who is making their daughter shave her head? its just horrible! Frown

That is terrible! Not only is the parent publicly humiliating the child but they are also giving them a one way ticket to bully-ville! I would much rather get spanked or slapped in the face than face a lifetime of humiliation. The pain from a slap quickly goes away but the pain from something like this never does!

actually, i do think that since parents have stopped spanking their kids that kids have gotten much more disrespectful. I think that humiliating them is MUCH worse! The child is going to carrry that with them forever and problably never forgive their parents for doing that to them!!!

This is so wrong! I can't believe parents would do this. I mean yes it's effectic, but I can bet that the kids will hate their parents for a long time-wrecking the parent-child relationship. Also this would be a majorly lower the self esteem of the kid. Their would be bullying for a very long time and it'll probably result in cruel nickname that will last even longer. Isn't this against the law? Emotional abuse? I for one know that embaressing moments, yes most people will not remember it, but YOU will forever. I'm not sure if this happens to only me, but when I have too much time to think, I often torture myself by replaying that moment over and over again. Again, wrong wrong wrong.

I think that this type of punishment is evil. It will lower a kid's self-esteem. One time, I heard a story about a mom forcing her daughter to wear thrift store clothes because the girl had laughed at another girl for wearing cheap clothes. My grandparents thought that the mom did a good thing. I heartily disagreed.

"Thankfully, spanking and other types of physical discipline are now viewed as child abuse."

Thankfully. THANKFULLY??? What the heck? Spanking is NOT child abuse. If you spank children before the age of seven and make them understand that they need to obey you as parents, then you don'd have to worry about all this crap that the parents have to go through and make their children go through later on! And also, how is humiliating and shaving hair off not child abuse? Words hurt almost as much, if not more than actions, and parents are just sending their child off to school to be ridiculed and laughed at. Stuff like that may prevent future disobedience, but that can take a huge blow to the kid's self esteem. Faith in humanity= Destroyed. For the one hundredth time.

"Thankfully, spanking and other types of physical discipline are now viewed as child abuse."

Thankfully? THANKFULLY? What are you thinking? As long as it doesn't leave any permanent damage spanking is perfectly fine! It teaches children right from wrong and teaches them in a way these other types of punishment can't! Sorry for this outburst but I just can't really believe this... :/

Thar is terrible they will be scared for life and bullied for that and the parents may think it helps but it will make things worse for the kids

by girly girl07 on 6/18/2013 2:27:15 PM

 
 

It's not right to humiliate kids by having them holding up a sign of what they did or shaving their head. If someone shaved my head I would cry. Parents who do this to their kids should definitely find a different punishment thats less humiliating like if their kid did something bad, ground them for a week. If they do it again, ground them for 2 weeks.

hair is temporary and the hair shaving punishment may embarrass her for a little but i don't see why its such a big deal! if she is nice that will shine through as beauty

by ssblue on 6/14/2013 9:39:35 AM

 
 

Looking at it as the perspective as a kid it is evil but having delt with people who do worse then this and their parents don't care even though it could ruin the person's life i think this is fair. It is not abuse and it gets the point across. As long as these are things that have been punished before and the point still didn't get across its fine. The humiliation may last a while but when these children are adults they will be smarter with their decisions and in the end they might be grateful for their parents caring for them to teach them a lesson.

by ssblue on 6/14/2013 9:37:54 AM

 
 

I am nice to my parents but if they tried to make me shave my head I would scream at them because there is o way I would ever let that happen and I probably wouldn't talk to them anymore! But they would never do that and they stick to grounding me instead Smile

by cupcakecutie325 on 6/12/2013 8:59:13 PM

 
 

That's terrible and worse than spanking! If my parents ever did that, I would probably never talk to them again...

by myfatsquirrel on 6/12/2013 12:26:54 AM

 
 

EVIL because humiliation last forever, and you have a reputation of being a stealer. When you get spanked it's more private and it does not last forever. You learn from your mistakes when you get spanked, it helped me learn from my mistakes.

by dancer995 on 6/11/2013 8:40:01 AM

 
 

shaving thier daughters head?!?! EVIL all of this is evil. they are going to remember that their whole lives. CHILD ABUSE! EVIL EVIL EVIL!

by melonade12 on 6/9/2013 9:24:42 PM

 
 

And also has anyone actually trying to TALK to their kids. Punishment shouldn't be the first resort.

by akaprincess on 6/6/2013 1:15:27 PM

 
 

Im used to this. When I was in 4th grade I schooled in Africa for a couple of years. If you did something wrong this is what they would do.

by akaprincess on 6/6/2013 1:13:21 PM

 
 

Spanking is not child abuse.I would rather get a spank than hold a sign,the spank would go away a lot faster than the humiliation.The shaving the head thing is way to harsh.

by emmacd on 6/4/2013 10:38:44 PM

 
 

Because of my parents punishing tactics, I have been told that I probably have no respect for authority because I was not punished enough. While I understand why someone may think that way, that's not so.
My parents have never grounded me or spanked me. They really don't see the point. And honestly, I don't either. From an observational standpoint, I've seen that grounding does nothing to curb the "bad" behavior in the first place. Maybe because it isn't properly connected with the punishment. For example, my parents always sit me down before a punishment (particularly when I was little) and explain why whatever I did was bad. Then it wouldn't be grounding, it would be taking away a privilege relevant to the crime. In my experience, grounding is barely ever relevant. It's used as a one size fits all punishment, which doesn't always work. Hannah M

Wow, this is intense. I think some of it is ok, but the shaving their daughters head part? wayyy to evil. I think learning punishments from actions is necessary but after the punishment, the action should be forgotten.

by sammyy99 on 6/4/2013 7:28:02 PM

 
 

This punishment is good. I agree that our generation is getting out of hand and groundings and spankings don't work anymore. Even if you ground a child, they'll still find a way to have sex, drink, sneak out and party. After being forced to walk around with their offenses on their backs I don't think any child would dare to do it again.

by justinbeiber#1 on 6/4/2013 6:47:51 PM

 
 

If they are going to do something they know is wrong, then they deserve the punishment. Obviously this works. I do think that shaving her hair is a bit overdone. But, as teenagers, we are rebellious and think we are invincible. These girls have been brought down from their high place. I can imagine that some girls are a bit frightened by this and will stop what they are doing.

Spanking is not child abuse. My older sister and i got spankings and we turned out fine. She has a full ride scholarship and is engagement and has no kids. I do perfectly decent n school and respect my parents. ^^^ I can agree some of this is wrong but, that almost like me having sex n the hallway and wondering why people are being mean to me. Like if someone @ their school had found out first, they wouldn't hav their parents teaching them a lesson. I bet half these kids won't do stupid crap again. It's not ok. I'm glad many of the GL editors and assistants don't hav kids because sometimes spankings and timeouts don't do.

by briana13 on 6/4/2013 6:15:23 PM

 
 

First off, spanking isn't child abuse...My parents spanked me and to tell you the truth, I'M GLAD THEY DID! If they didn't I'm sure I wouldn't be as respectful to them as I am. I meet so many teenagers and kids that are disrespectful to their parents and its sick. Second, this article is saying that its basically wrong to punish kids when they do something wrong. If they cant spank them or make them hold up signs what other punishment is there? I agree that the hair shaving was a bit much, but still? So many teens go unpunished for their bad actions and they turn out to be ignoramuses. Do you want the world full of ignoramuses? I'm pretty sure we have enough already!

by Chloe<3 on 6/4/2013 6:12:09 PM

 
 

Oh please! What these kids were doing were pretty bad, and if you'd be embarrassed by people knowing of your terrible behaviour, then don't do it.

by WhiteStripe3 on 6/4/2013 6:05:42 PM

 
 

Evil!!!!!

by wildstar19 on 6/4/2013 5:33:55 PM

 
 

I believe spanking is always a better option to teach that is was a wrong thing to do. It has always been around. This stuff is kind of outrageous because everybody can see it and you will be remembered as that person and you will never get the chance to correct your wrong if everybody keeps linking you back to that one mistake. And shaving the daughters head is more physical abuse than spanking will ever be.

by HockeyLuver on 6/4/2013 4:51:45 PM

 
 

I definitely disagree with this form of punishment. Growing up is tough enough. Add in public humiliation and a kid could be emotionally scarred for life, especially if said humiliation is caused by a kid's parents. If someone embarrasses their child, the kid will resent the parent. Also, this kind of punishment could, in fact, lead to bullying.

by scamp24 on 6/4/2013 4:33:11 PM

 
 


no! this is evil. they'll be teased endlessly which will hurt their self esteem even more. They could get a bad rep and be the ones who get bullied. that's not any better than when they bullied. andthe one with the girl who said she snuck boys in her house. imagine if other guys saw that. they'd probably tell her perverted things and try to climb into her window, maybe assault her. Problems between family members should stay that way, between family member. i mean if teenager gave these punishemtns to their parents saying stuff like, "my dad punishes without listening," or "my mom blew all the family money on poker.", the parents would probably have trouble finding a job with all that bad stuff being said about them.the rule, "do unto other as you would have them do unto you" really aplies here Caroline M.

parents cyberbullying their own children! D: unacceptable

by hermionegirl12 on 6/4/2013 3:45:31 PM

 
 

"Thankfully, spanking and other types of physical discipline are now viewed as child abuse." Except spanking is NOT child abuse when the child needs discipline. Of course, if a spanking leaves bruises or there is no cause for the spanking, it is child abuse, but spanking to discipline your child is not wrong. Temporary physical pain is FAR less traumatic than this kind of shaming, and does a better job of teaching kids right from wrong. Maybe if spanking weren't viewed as "child abuse," parents wouldn't feel the need to do this.

by sarah.sjworm on 6/4/2013 3:23:58 PM

 
 

I think most of the punishments might work but shaving their daughter's head is a little harsh.

by mooncool7 on 6/4/2013 3:16:33 PM

 
 

Those are all embarrassing and I guess parents think they need to take action to make a point. I wouldnt want my parents doing this to me and I dont think they would but if they were desperate and wanted me to learn a lesson because I wasnt listening who knows what they would do.

I would hate to hold a sign saying I sneaked boys into my room at 3am, that would be the worst.

by fashionqn on 6/4/2013 2:39:57 PM

 
 

This isn't the correct way of punishing. Is this the message parents want to give their children : that mistakes last forever and you can´t move on, and if someone doesn't do something you want him or her to do, humiliate them? I think that they can't force you to do something. If they did what they could and the child still does bad things, let them be and learn the hard way.

by maeugeniap on 6/4/2013 2:39:30 PM

 
 

I think that's terrible! Yes, it may work to stop the bad behavoir, but like the article said, those kids will be branded for life as "the boy who cheated" or "the girl who stole"! That will undoubtly cause bullying by their peers which, in some extreme cases, may lead to suicide. This is NOT OK. With dogs and cats, it's cute; with kids, it's just mean. But that's just my opinion.
