Have you ever joked, in a moment of frustration, about selling your child? Well, one teenager babysitter actually tried to do it. 19-year-old Autumn Braden from western Michigan created the following listing on eBay for her 2-year-old cousin: "Kid for sale: An adorable child for sale, can clean and hold a decent conversation. Very lovable but I just outgrew her \<3."

After she started accepting bids, concerned eBay members notified the authorities. Braden says she was just trying to see how eBay worked and didn’t think anyone would take it seriously. It’s yet to be determined if she will be charged with any wrongdoing.
What do you think: should she be punished, or is this just a harmless prank?
