No please don't do this , will only make matters worse. Unless your parents see him do it , then a firm "no" and then put the dog outside to show him that's where he has to do it. Also , when he goes outside , someone should be there with him on all times , and when they see him do his business (outside) praise him , give cookies , show the dog that's what he's suppose to do. Positive reinforcement. You mentioned this dog has been neglected so I would suggest no punishment when he does bad. But the total opposite : praise and positive reinforcement when he does good.
