Anyone here remember the punishment of being sent to bed without supper? I’m trying to remember if my parents ever sent me to bed without supper. No incident along these lines is coming to me at the moment.

What childhood infraction could be so bad that a kid isn’t fed? On purpose? Unless a family is in a poverty situation wherein there isn’t any food, why would anyone think to do this? Does anyone do this anymore?

I was thinking about this earlier today and ran into this horrific story. I think this mother would believe that sending her child to bed without supper was too lenient.
