Excercise 1: Punishment

In The Son of a Servant, August Strindberg describes a scene of classic child rearing from his own childhood. When the father comes home from work, the mother tells him what kind of mischief the young boy Johan has gotten into during the day, and the boy’s father then decides on and executes the boy’s punishment: a spanking, and the mother who “snitched” on her son, comes to the boy afterwards
and comforts him.

Does this happen today? Or how do parents punish their children today? And who does it, if anyone does it? What happens?

Make up a scene, at the most 5 minutes long, and record it.
