As a child, the worst thing that could have happened to me was to be punished. Back in the '90s, I loved everything about television, being outside, and hanging out with my friends at the local community center. And my mom, fully aware of how much I loved these activities, very strategically chose how and when to punish me. Although there are plenty of tactics parents still use today, there are so many ways your parents punished you in the '90s that would never be used today.
In all honesty, I used to think that the way my mom punished me as a child was extreme. But when I look back on how those punishments positively affected me, I can't be upset. (Then again, I see the way she "punishes" my niece, and my mind quickly thinks "why weren't you this nice to me when I got in trouble back then?") Regardless of how chill those punishments seem to me now, there are still a few things I wouldn't use as a means of punishment for my child today. Partially because some things are null and void and also because well, they were simply just nonsense.
Whether you've upgraded your means of discipline since the '90s or if you're still using a few of those tactics, these seven flashback punishments will remind you why the '90s totally ruled all around.
