I think that this dad had the right idea about just how to most effectively punish his daughter!
Not only does he not have to worry about the PTB interfering with his right to punish, but I'm sure that the daughter would hate to have this type of behaviour made public again.
This may just be a case of "once being enough" and if it works then it's something that more parents might want to try!
Dad buys newspaper ad after daughter breaks curfew
Aug 20, 11:18 PM (ET)
SOUTHLAKE, Texas (AP) - A Texas teenager who broke curfew is headed for a reluctant adventure in baby-sitting.
Robert Rausch placed an advertisement offering his daughter's free baby-sitting services in the community newspaper in Southlake, a wealthy suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth that is home to business leaders and professional athletes.
The advertisement names Rausch's 16-year-old-daughter and says, "Want a FREE BABYSITTER for a night out?" It explains that she is in trouble for missing her curfew and offers 30 hours of free baby-sitting.
Rausch says he wanted to discipline his daughter and help others at the same time. And it appears his daughter has already learned a lesson. She says she won't violate curfew again or throw any more late-night parties.

So simple that it's a beautiful idea! It might just get the message across! Personally I think it's a win-win situation! More power to Dad on this one!
How about some coffee on the patio this morning?
