I don't want to spank my kids anymore, it doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere, timeouts aren't working, ect... ect... ect... When I ask for unique here is an example I found...
I found online if your child is running through the house and you have asked more than one to stop make him walk on his hands and feet like a crab he wont be able to get there in such a hurry (he will slow down), he will learn to walk like he is suppose to...
Do you have any other UNIQUE, effective methods?

Kids are being bad in the car. Pull over and sit quietly. When they get quiet, start driving again. No mini-lecture. They will learn that the car doesn't go if they are being bad.
Older kid being bad in the car close to home. Make them get oul and walk. My oldest son only had to do it once. The others learned from that experience. Mom WILL kick us out of the car and make us walk!

The child wants to do something like go to a friends. "First do the dishes, then I will take you to your friend's house." It's not a choice, do you want to go to your friend's house bad enough to do the dishes? The thing the child would be asked to do would be something they were supposed to do anyway or something that really needed to be done and the child could realize that. If they grow up with first, then they are used to it.

Discipline does not mean only punishment. Discipline it also means instruction, training, teaching self-control, order, or a system of conduct. You can discipline your children and never use punishment.
