that is as abusive in my view, removing all but the most very basic of provisions is not an acceptable way to discipline anyone.
I'm not going to get in a debate. He was behaving very horribly and he had all of his needs. Clothes, a bed, he just didn't have his prized pocessions and I am sorry you see that as abusive but it worked. And he wasn't traumatized in the least. That is all I am saying about that.
