  • my son if you spank him its like fuel to a fire... it works better to just take things that he really likes .. like if he gets into trouble at school he dont get to use the computer or play any games... a spankin hurts for a sec and messes with their head ... takin things lets them know they have to do good in order to have good things in life....

  • I use time outs, I have spanked before im not against it. Most of the time time out works.

  • I use both depending on the situation. Mostly time outs or going to her room. Or playing the computer upstairs by herself, that is when her attitude is terrible and this way I don't spend the evening yelling at her and she is content. He mode generally improves after.

  • My DD is still too little for discipline, but I plan to use timeouts, it worked with me and I grew up when spanking was pretty much the norm (at least where I lived)

  • I NEVER spank. Each one of my children responds to different forms of punishments. It took a while to find out what worked best though. My oldest gets tv or books taken away, my middle daughter does more chores and my son stands in the corner.
