just curious on what other moms are doing? I personally try to do time outs but my daughter is only 3 but occasionally i have spanked her if she is doing something that will hurt her, but afterwards i always feel bad.

We have tried time outs, spanking, taking away privileges, etc. Nothing worked for our son until a few days ago when he got in trouble at school my husband made our son do a few push-ups, sit-ups, and then had him hold his arms out for a minute or two (basically what they call smoking a private in basic training). It works for our son. He was begging for a spanking and he straightens up as soon as we mention making him do these things.

im the same- spankings are saved for very dangerous or naughty behaviour but time outs are the norm here
