Dublin dad, Conor Ryan, has taken a creative approach to punishing his son.


After the 15-year-old was caught smoking for the second time, his dad seemed to think it would take something drastic to get through to him.


So rather than grounding his son again or making him do extra chores, he took to buy-and-sell site Done Deal and posted an ad for the teen’s iPhone.


The selling price? €1 – eek!


Posting a number of pictures of the phone, Conor added:


“15 year old son was caught smoking on Friday for the second time. Grounding him did not do the trick so hopefully this teaches him.”


We really hope the teen has learned his lesson.
