So it’s come to this. Apparently the new way to punish your kids is . . . making them watch TV.

No, seriously. According to a new survey it’s actually pretty popular . . . AND effective.

Kids are so OBSESSED with their gadgets that almost HALF of parents say that sometimes, they punish them by confiscating their phones and iPads and making them watch TV instead.

One kid they interviewed said, quote, “The iPad’s cool, TV isn’t that good because you can’t control it. Basically, the TV sucks.”

The survey also found 58% of kids have their own tablet . . . and 41% of parents believe their kid would choose their tablet over dessert.
