Woman creates her own 'Juvenile Detention Centre' to punish daughter

parenting 15/06/2018

A mum's punishment to her daughter has gone viral online after she shared it on Facebook.

Amanda Mitchell had had a guts full of her daughter's behaviour so created her own 'Juvenile Detention Centre' in her house as punishment.

Some people have called the punishment 'too harsh', but others have praised the mum for her hardline approach.

Read the Mum's explanation of the punishment below...

"I don’t usually post this kind of stuff but I’m so disgusted and disappointed in Hannah’s behaviour this week I just have to share.

Long story short, I get a call from her teacher on Friday explaining how Hannah has been acting up all week in class...

The result: an empty room. She has nothing. Welcome to Mommy’s Juvenile Detention, little girl. She will wear the same outfit (complete with her anti-bullying shirt) all week. I will wash it at night once she goes to bed but I won’t tell her that. Harsh? Not in my opinion. If she grows up to break the law then the result is jail and that’s not what I want for my children. I think the problem with this generation is inadequate punishment. Punishment is bad we should only use positive reinforcement and ignore all bad behaviour – NOT in this house.

So this child will earn her things back one at a time. Every day this week she will write lines… 50 times each:

I will not lie. I will be kind to everyone. I will behave at school. I am my own person and I make my own choices (she’s been trying to blame her bad behaviour on a friend). I am responsible for my own actions.

And then this child will learn the hard way that we do not act like assholes."
