If you're a parent, you know that disciplining your kids can be tricky. Of course, you want to teach them to become well-behaved adults. But, on the other hand, you don't want to take discipline too far.

Taking away their smartphone makes a lot of sense. Like a lot of people, kids and teenagers seem to be permanently attached to their phones. So, when they're misbehaving, taking it away will quickly remedy the situation.

Except, doing that landed a father of a 12-year-old girl in jail. He had to pay $1,500 to bail himself out of jail, and endured a two-day trial.

For what? Ronald Jackson took his daughter's iPhone away, as punishment, when he found inappropriate text messages on it. His daughter was using the phone to coordinate an attack on another girl. There's more to the story.
