Ethan was always in trouble, stealing money on a regular basis from an old woman. This upset the family so much, especially his dad who knew if this behavior would continue Ethan would become a big-time thief in the future.

Knowing full well that the child could be imprisoned in the future for his deeds, the father took him on a prison tour instead. With the help of the police officers and the prisoners, the father was able to hammer in the point – that life as a criminal is harsh. Though this prison tour might just be too harsh a punishment for the child, his father believed it was the best action to take to make Ethan stop stealing.

And the method actually worked! Ethan stopped stealing. Asked why, he admitted to being afraid of the experience he had in prison. This really changed him.
