Children's punishment? What do you think of this idea if a child disobeys their parents. Lets say the child really wants to go to a concert?
out of town. And the parents say No, they can't go. So if the child asks the parents that if they do go, what would be the punishment to them and the parent tells them what the punishment will be. So the child can decide whether or not going to the concert is worth the punishment, and if they decide to go and accept the punishment afterwards, is that the Best Way to handle this situation? Why or Why not? Your thoughts?

The parents should just say to the child, "If you go to that concert, I'll kill you. THAT will be your punishment". Let the kid make his choice.

Most parents won't do anything or the punishment will be really light,
the child should have never been allowed to go any way. There's no need for them to go and if they sneak off then there goes all their privileges. No net, no computer, no cell phone, no nothing.

So the child was told no, and then not only snuck out but left town? Yeah, that child wouldn't have any privileges left in my house. They want to act like a 2-year-old, we'll happily indulge them. Two-year-olds don't get internet, phones, laptops, dates, time out with friends without a parental chaperone, etc.

Nope. You must be the child in this story. The punishment needs to be something that will make the child realize the consequences of what they did.

When I told my kids no, that was the end of the conversation. I didn't have to say anything else.

No. If you were to go to the concert after hearing what the punishment was, your parents will just think the punishment obv wasn't harsh enough and they'll punish you harder. The best way would have been not to have asked at all. They can't really blame you if you didn't know you weren't allowed. It's always easier to ask forgiveness than permission.
