The Groupon Guide to: Creative Discipline Ideas

Children sleep for about 18 hours a day, but they will sometimes act out during their brief windows of lucidity. And though any parent can teach right from wrong with a timeout or by withholding attention, it takes a special parent to discipline outside the box. Here are some creative punishments for unruly children:

  • The child must eat two dinners before bedtime.
  • The child must read your Toy Story fan fiction in which Buzz Lightyear spends 47 pages feeling sad about his life.
  • The child must watch you smoke an entire carton of cigarettes while you explain precisely why doing so hurts your body.
  • The child must get a boring art degree instead of a trendy business one.
  • The child must defeat a robot version of his/herself.
