  • Im all about hands OFF discipline. So time-out is what we use. Doesnt always work the first time though. Sometimes we have a repeat offender lol. But our son usually gets the point after his second timeout

  • I use time out first, then if that doesnt get his attention then he gets a spanking!

  • Girl, I have done all! You have to do what works on the child. If you swat their butts and they don't respond, time to figure something else out. I never liked time outs, though, they made more of a mess in their rooms than a good old swat on the butt!

  • i try time out, taking a toy away, putting her in her room (which is a last resort b/c its got toys and well that kinda defeats the purpose if she sits and plays but she doesn't like to be alone so it kinda works for about 5 secs), no tv, and if all these don't work i will spank her butt.

  • Time outs work great. My son gets put in time out, and he HATES it, so he is very well behaved.

  • Different ages, different method. With my oldest, a quick spank to the bottom did it until he was 2-3. Than that didnt work any more so it was time out for the next 2 years. Than and still is taking things away. But he's 9 now, so way too old for spanking,a nd time out ithink

  • Good old fashion spanking their asses......woohoo!!!

    The good thing about it is I only talk once and they are very well behaived in public atleast I get compliments on them on how they are well behaive so I guess I am doing something good.

    I don't beat my kids but I do give them one good spank on the tush and that is that. It worked for me when I was growing up.
