Watch video of the punishment. 

But are shaming tactics effective in disciplining children?

WKYC spoke to Dr. Aaron Ellington, an adolescent psychologist, who feels that shaming punishments run the risk of negatively affecting the bond between parent and child, “What I’m concerned about is, now you might have to deal with resentment that you didn’t have to deal with before.”

Instead, Dr. Ellington believes instituting a more rational consequence for a child’s negative behavior is the route to go, telling WKYC, “You’re still just trying to pour on the punishment to try to get this teen to comply, instead of saying, ‘Let’s look at it this way:  You may not have the skills it takes to walk away, but you need to learn the skills to walk away, and we’re going to teach you the skills.’”

Sound off!
