My hairdresser had her 13 year old son find a corner in the front of the grocery store for being a snot. She had just had it with his attitude, and could not think of anything to do, so she sent him to the corner while she finished her shopping. Her son said it was so embarrassing because the employees kept going up to him and ask why he is standing in the corner and he had to tell them; ” because I was being a jerk to my Mom”. I loved the idea!!!
Her younger kids did not act up that much after that. They knew she meant business!! The son is now 23 and he still remembers that and actually says that he deserved it for being a jerk!
