Dad Takes Away Daughter’s Phone as Punishment and Leaves Hilarious Note

Back in the day, the way to punish your child from misbehaving was to put them in a time out, or make them sit on the “naughty chair”. It still works for little kids (I think) but what about older ones?

Fast forward to the high-tech society we live in today, and those things just ain’t gonna cut it! No… extreme measures must be taken, especially with tweens and teenagers.

My eldest is turning 13, and my youngest is 10 going on 17. They are completely into their tech devices – whether it be video games, YouTube videos, or iPads. My almost-teen now has a cell phone… which now gives me plenty of ammunition!
