This is what I do with my 8 yr old. (now keep in mind it's only had to happen 5 times in his 8 yrs) One swat on the butt... not hard just enough to get his attention and I escort him to his room and make him sit on his bed. We he is done with tantrum/crying I will ask him to come out to talk to us and ask him if he knows why I swatted him. He will tell me and I will then explain to him that his behavior was uncalled for and unacceptable PERIOD and it WON'T happen again. Then we ask him what caused the outburst (which is what he got in trouble about in the first place) and he will tell us what he did and then we give out his punishment. Flat out he accepts it bc he has no choice in the matter and he does apologize for misbehaving... Like I said in his entire 8 yrs it's only happened 5 times... not to say he is perfect by no means....lol.. but he understands now that we mean business if he acts out like that..
