Odysseus stabs Polyphemus in the eye with a flaming stick. On the way off the island after he escaped he was yelling at Polyphemus about how weak he was but his consequence was Polyphemus threw boulders at his ship.
The goddess Circe turned Odysseus's crew into pigs.
Odysseus went to the land of the sirens. The sirens lured people to drown by singing with their beautiful voices. Odysseys men filed their ears with wax but Odysseus wanted to here the sirens singing so instead of filling his ears with wax he was tied to the mast so he wouldn't jump into the water.

After the sirens they ran into the monster Charybdis who made a whirlpool and flung many of the crew off his ship.
Finally Odysseus returned home but the goddess Athena changed him into an old man because everyone else wanted to marry his wife so he didnt want to be attacked so that is why he was in disguise. To prove to his wife that it was him he had to shoot a bow and arrow through 12 rings. He sucsesfulle shot through the rings and was reunited with his son and wife. This can apply to modern day children because it can tell them not to tease people because like when Odysseus boasted and teased Polyphemus he threw a boulder at him. This is a good lesson for kids because if they tease other people there will be consequences.
