So much for timeout or a trip to the principal’s office. A town in Wisconsin has a new approach when it comes to punishing kids who pick on others: Make their parents pay up.

The ordinance prohibits all forms of harassment — including cyberbullying — inside city limits and applies to anyone under the age of 18.
