Wow, how times have changed. Remember when you were a kid and you got into trouble at home? Most of us remember getting spanked or grounded. Now, there is a new punishment.

According to new research from Miner & Co., A growing trend is for parents to take away their kids' gadgets and make them watch television.

Really? That is just a little too funny because being forced to watch TV would have been paradise for us.

Oh, and this is really weird! Get this. Kids were asked if the would rather have their iPad or dessert. Fifty eight percent of the kids said iPad! What? Over dessert?  Are you kidding me? In the video below a child explains that you just can't control a TV like you can an iPad or tablet.
