Punishment wheel

This Punishment Wheel was patented in the late 1980s (peak of popularity for the Wheel of Fortune?). An easy way to take the guesswork out of parenting! The only flaw is that “Parent’s Choice” remains as one of the available possibilities. It is nice to see that the punishments are quite humane: Time Out, No TV, No Dessert, Donate a Toy. In the Middle Ages a punishment wheel would have been a whole other type of device, brutal in its own right.
