Is scaring teens to improve their behavior a good idea?

Home More advice Kids

I was just watching America Now and seen where parents sent their kids to a program at a jailhouse to show them what it will be like if they keep getting into trouble. At first I thought it wouldn't be such a bad idea until I seen how harsh the guards were even when the kids did start to obey. Is this the right approach or should parents look into less intense punishments?
