The Prodigy's Blog "Punishments"

June 8, 2016

Uncle Chris here! I’ll be filling in for The Prodigy while he’s on vacation. Yesterday on the show, a Florida dad was brought up because of the interesting way he punished his son. Allan Gieger Jr. sold his teen's SUV on Craigslist for “smoking weed” and “acting all thug.” He even said he would knock off $250 off the price if the buyer lived nearby just so his son would see the car every day.


I remember punishments as a kid being pretty average, nothing unusual or crazy comes to mind.  It was a much different time, though, and I can't count how many times my grandfather told me: "go break me off a switch," which just meant that I was supposed to go outside to the tree of my choosing and select an adequate branch with which I would then receive my butt-whipping.  It got to a point where there weren't any branches left that I could reach...


I think I prefer Allan Gieger’s method instead. What about you? What was the most unique way you were punished or that you punished your kids?
