Creative or cruel?
Clip of an interesting discipline technique

So what do you think of this discipline technique? Was it creative? Was it effective? Was it cruel? Would you use it?

I like the idea of disciplining based on the principal of empathy instead of merely punishing an incident. These parents understand that their child needed to learn empathy not just be punished for a bullying incident. 

I like that the discipline was a teaching experience instead of simply a punishment that has little connection to the behavior.

I like that the discipline was not done out of anger or revenge, but for the purpose of teaching.

But I am not sure I would recommend this to other parents.
What do you think?
