Have parents who have unique methods of punishment gone to far? Is there a limit or line that can be crossed that shows that the punishment has been to sever? Like public humiliation, or even dis-ownership? An example of this would be the famous you tube video of a parent shooting up his child's laptop. Or a more recent one where an adolescent was forced to hold up a sign that read, "I am here because i don't give a **** about my grades or anybody that cares for me." Are these punishments justified?
