25 Weird and Dumb Punishments People Received from Their Parents

Parenting is difficult. Parents often don't know what they're doing, so they have to figure it out on the fly. We've all had that moment when your parents find out that you've learned a new swear word, and have to deal with the fallout. Some parents will make you put soap in your mouth. Others will send you to your room. Sometimes they just start swearing too, and that's pretty cool. Often parents try to get creative with their punishments. Some are incredibly effective. Some aren't. Other ones are super creepy and cause lasting psychological damage. Anyway, here are weird punishments.

We all had one bad teacher in high school (if not more). No matter what you did, for that teacher it was always wrong.

Jacob and Angela Boggus have run out of ideas on ways to punish their 16-year-old son for stealing from them, so they have forced him to live in a purple tent in their backyard.

"We're not doing anything wrong here," Angela Boggus said. "We're simply trying to teach our child a lesson."

"Anybody who wants to talk some sense into him is more than welcome," Jacob Boggus said. "We're not trying to hide from this."

Each day the kid is given a jug of water and has permission to leave the tent when he has to use the bathroom. However, the parents aren't complete savages and also let the 16-year-old inside each night to sleep at 9 pm. But as soon as he wakes up, it's back to the purple tent.

Members of the small town community have voiced their opinions on the unorthodox disciplinary approach and the local sheriff has even been called out to the home three times. What Jacob and Angela are doing is not illegal, says Valencia County Chief Deputy Gary Hall. "It's not like he's been banished out to the mesa a hundred miles away from civilization."
