Parenting is never easy, despite all the help that modern technology offers or the original hacks that parents themselves come up with, it’s a neverending challenge with new problems appearing daily. Amanda Mitchell, a mother from Newfoundland, Canada, found herself in quite a situation after the school reported that her daughter Hannah was misbehaving and bullying a friend. This mother knew exactly what to do to teach her daughter a lesson and shared it on her Facebook page. “I think the problem with this generation is inadequate punishment,” Mitchell said. While some people may think her methods were harsh, Amanda disagreed. “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.” she explained.

“I know that I’m not doing harm to her. I’m doing everything I can to help her. I told her I’m doing this because I love her and want her to grow up to be a well-rounded individual.” Mitchell told GlobalNews. While initially Hannah was shocked, she later accepted her punishment and started working to improve her behavior.
