Children are the ultimate rebel, they do the exact opposite of what’s asked. Even you and I were just the same, remember? And these very things irritate the hell out of our parents. I remember my mom punishing me for the things that I did against her wish. And the unique thing about all this is the kind of punishment kid’s used to get or still do. I can actually talk about my entire childhood and my mom in this regard. And this article covers one similar story. When a son did not comply with the rule of not using a phone after bedtime, his mom not only grounded him but devised a brilliant plan to make her son learn something. The punishment included doing certain things which will get him points and in turn, he will get ungrounded.
Well, at least the sister here seems to be having fun after watching her mom punish her brother.
I am very sure loads of moms out there are going to get inspired by this kind of punishment. This mom is a genius, the way she has come up this is mindblowing. The son will end up learning few things which will help him in future.
Here is the list of words. Notice how subtly the entire thing has been prepared. She literally has covered everything possible. Kudos.
