Girl cries loudly in fear of her father


There are several types of punishments that we used to experience as kids.

Even though experts these days suggest other ways of teaching children what’s right from wrong – with reasoning techniques and modelling behavior – parents can still use old-school punishments as a ploy to surprise their children with gifts.

Here’s the story of father in Udon Thani who threatened to punish his daughter, but later surprised her with a smartphone.

Nevertheless, the man managed to convince his daughter to walk out and speak to him by saying that he had something for her under the seat of his motorcycle.

His daughter decided to come out, but kept herself a safe distance away from her father – for fear of the whip in his hand – before opening the back of the motorcycle.

Little did she know that this was all a plan to surprise her with a gift she had been longing for.


The girl gets surprised with a new mobile phone


Upon seeing the smartphone, the girl seemed so surprised that she didn’t even know whether to laugh or cry with the ongoing situation.

Translation: When I was young, my mother used the same trick. But when I ran out, she trashed me like crazy.

One netizen shared her experience and said that it was different from this girl’s, as the commenter’s mother trashed her instead of surprising her with a new phone.

Translation: Daddy should be careful now because his daughter may tell his secrets to her mother. LOL

However, another netizen suggested that the father should be careful because his daughter may blackmail him.


No Pain, No Gain


One good reason behind why our parents punished us is that they want us to be well-disciplined individuals. While we understand that now, we may have seen undergoing the consequences of our actions as torture when we were kids.

It’s just like they say: sometimes, we need to suffer in order to achieve something.

Like, in certain situations, we may need to cry first in order to get surprised with a happy ending.
