What is it a parent can do to deter his or her children from playing with gadgets too frequently? Well, this mom from Thailand thought of an ingenious plan!
Armed with black eyeshadow, this mom applied it all over her daughter’s eyelids while she was sound asleep. Upon waking up, her daughter screamed after seeing how her eyes looked and started sobbing in fear. “It’s because you played so much,” the mom told her.
Public Health Malaysia, in particular, took to Facebook to warn about the harms of trauma-inducing punishment. “While having a trauma, children’s brain is in a state of stress […] Any form of trauma will remain in memory for a long term,” they said.
They also said that tricks like this will greatly affect children’s trust in their own parents. “Parents are the most trusted person by children. If they find out that parents have cheated on them until they have trauma, would they still be able to trust parents like before?”
