As BlahISuck said, punishments should make the kid reflect about what they did and whi it's wrong. Punishing someone for the sake of punishment will only make the kid resent you or make them afraid of you. And you should want your kid to respect you, not to fear you. They are very different things.

I'm a very self-conscious person so a public embarrassment would have hurt me very deeply. Specially if my mother didn't bother telling me why what I did was wrong- just that it was.
