Teenagers Refusing to Put Their Dishes in the Sink? THIS is Parenting Done Right.

Gone are the days when being grounded or having your pocket-money deducted was deemed a suitable punishment.

Now a father has shared his particular method of discipline and it involves the extremely grave threat of restricting his children’s internet access and cutting off their phone plans.

The reminder, based on Liam Neeson’s famous speech in the Hollywood blockbuster Taken, was taped up in the kitchen as ‘Labuzan’ [the father], who is believed to be from the US, explained:

‘My teenagers refuse to put their dishes in the dishwasher. So I put this above the sink.’

Transcribed for anyone who has trouble reading it from the picture.

‘I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want.

‘If you are looking for a maid to clear up for you, I can tell you I don’t do that.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long lifetime. Skills that make me an expert in home WiFi systems and cellular data plans.

‘If you clean up your own kitchen mess that will be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you.

‘But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you and I will disconnect you.’

The post on Reddit encouraged a thread of over 3,500 responses and the photo is now being shared widely across Twitter and Facebook.


  1. The ultimate threat – Whew! And when they reach 50 they’ll come back, get down on their knees and with tears in their eyes beg: “Please, please, please show me how to get disconnected!” Ha!
