    And obviously logic isn't yours. You think "Counseling would have been best" is in disagreement with "the parents were too harsh"? You believe "I would have looked at other options" (which is what I voted, BTW) is in disagreement with "the parents were too harsh"??? LOL!

    I didn't either, mainly because the question was not well stated. It's not so much that the parents were too "harsh", as that the punishment was totally inappropriate and likely to be counterproductive.

    that was my reasoning also.

    To me it looks more like emotional abuse and public humiliation rather than exercising discipline.
