Selling Toys as Punishment

February 18, 2011  |  

In this digital age, everything is changing. And I do mean everything, even the way we discipline our children. Earlier this month, a mother of two boys decided to sell her sons’ spinning tops, called Beyblades, as punishment for destroying the bathtub while they were using it as a battle ground. She listed the spinning tops on EBay.

Although the opening bid was $69 dollars, it quickly skyrocketed to $999,999 before it was taken down. The mother assumed it was a hoax.

Was this a good idea for a punishment or is it too humiliating for the children?
