A friend of mine's son was getting in small trouble with the law and hanging out with a bad crowd. The last straw was he was brought home by the police for breaking curfew. He said if you want to end up in jail I will treat you like you are there already.....
Took the door off of his room, put his mattress on the floor and took everything else out, he had timed showers, could only eat with the family for meals and when meals were over he went right back into his room... I can't think of all that went on, but after awhile the Joey realised if that was jail, he did not want to end up there.
Now he is a senior in high school with plans to go to Indiana University next year.
I don't think it was abusive at all, a little tough love.
