What do you do to a 14 year old who does not listen or obey the rules of the parent, after parent consistantly expresses concern? Give him a cookie and some juice, sit him down at the kitchen table and waste your breath some more? The son stole money and snuck out of the house when his father was at work,trying to make a living. If I pulled that crap at age 14, my father would have put my head through a DRATING wall.

he stripped him, beat him, and dragged him naked in front of his friends oh yeah that's perfectly good parenting, good call you IABers who are defending him. he`s not gonna have major issues at all, your right this is extremely healthy for a 14 year old boy.

No 14 year old child deserves to be tied up and dragged naked through the streets. Period. That is just abusive, and all it will teach him is that when someone does something wrong, the appropriate response is violence and humiliation. How is that going to help anything? There are other ways to discipline a child, you confiscate something they like, refuse to allow them to go to a friends house for a period of time, or ban them from attending a concert or event they wanted to go to, or assign them extra chores. Something other than stripping them naked, beating them, tying them up, and dragging them through the filthy streets where their bare skin is sure to get cut up and those cuts will probably get infected.

Ok, I remember there was an article on IAB about a father who sold his son's toys on Ebay as punishment or something (those who remember that will know what I`m talking about ;D), and if I recall correctly, that seemed to get most of the posters there fired up saying that it was terrible, humiliating and just downright poor parenting. On this article though, I see there are mixed reactions to this situation. I`m just asking out of pure curiosity, what makes this any more right than the whole Ebay fiasco? I think some parallels can be made here. On that note, I absolutely don`t disagree with punishing the boy. I probably would have dragged him out of the place too, but I think stripping him was a little much...
