put sb in their place

put sb in his/her place (remind you you’re not as important as you think you are) — поставить на место, окоротить

Example: She put him in his place with just a few words.

Example: Beyonce Knowles is a diva, but she still has a kind heart and good perspective about her fame. Her family made sure of that! They put her in her place from the moment she got famous. And it worked because Beyonce understands that she is not the most important person in the world.
