It achieves something in that it let's the public see that you are pure evil.

im gonna say no, but it sure is funny to watch. and while it instills a sense of like shame and embarrassment. you gotta look at what its gonna do to a kid later on, that kids gonna start nailing cats to fences and lighting sh*t on fire, a better alternative would be to help him get over a natural occurrence that happens to tons of snot-nosed brats, and most of my friends when they drink too much. id say an alternative would be to help him know it was an accident and then encourage that kid to become more confident, stronger and faster, and this should go without saying, to aim for the water. also for me tell him to keep it out of the pool ;)

No! it certainly does NOT. It will only cause the child to develop severe anxiety and low sefl-esteem as they are be conveyed the message/ feeling that they are not normal. This can lead to many problems as the child ages. What this action WILL achieve is to cause the child to suffer more.

To achieve means to reach (or exceed) some end. For example, if I set a goal of being sleep by midnight, then I have achieved that goal if I'm not awake at (or after) midnight. The goal (at least as stated) does not contain any value judgement as part of the statement. Similarly, the original question does not contain a value proposition. So, something could be achieved (as commented already)--good or bad.

Yes it does. It acheives instilling in your child fear and shame. Whether or not that is a good thing, is debatable.

But the question asks if it achieves anything. If it instills shame in a child, is that not an achievement?
