After that if she behaved badly we only had to say "dad will pick you up from school in that yellow suit" and she instantly reformed...
I'm not sure whether that punishment would be better or worse than the one that was used for centuries in England: the village stocks.
The basic construction of stocks was broadly similar - moveable planks with holes cut out for the legs, occasionally two tiers to include holes for the arms as well. A boulder or stool may be added for the victim to sit on.
They were used for minor miscreants, such as vagabonds who'd drink too much. Victims were kept in the stocks for a few hours at least, and since they were usually on village greens in full view of passers-by, part of the punishment was the humiliation as people made "laughing stocks" of them, sometimes even throwing rotten vegetables.
When I was researching their history for this blog (you can see how my whimsical research is a fantastic procrastination activity), I discovered that their use has never been expressly abolished so in theory we could bring them back into use... For politicians maybe?
