We told you that if you couldn't shape up, the X-box would be gone. You didn't shape up. It's gone. Next time maybe you'll learn to listen and follow the rules."
Again, I think it's a kind of a stupid move because why not sell it? But I don't think it's violence or abuse or loss of self-control or a poor lesson.

It's still wasteful and not a good lesson in the value of money. I agree it's not abuse.
