Usually, parents punish children by taking away their amusements and nothing else: a week without cell phones, video games, among other things. However, this mother punished her child in a much more original way. After that, surely the boy will think twice before disobeying his mother.
The woman caught the boy playing with his cell phone when he should be asleep. So, as a form of punishment, she made a list. Her son had to finish it in order to end the punishment and br able to do the things he likes, such as playing on the computer. For this to happen, he would have to gain a certain number of points.
After the mother put the punishment list online, it became viral and has been praised by parents around the world. See what the punishment was bellow:
You got grounded!
“To get rid of your penalty, you must earn 500 points.

Write a nice letter to a family member = 10 points
