I tried doing the "corner" and it's working pretty well. The threat of "time out" wasn't doing it anymore. What do you do when your kids are misbehaving? What consequences do you have for them?

time-outs for all my kids are done in the corner. I tried other things with my older kids and just putting them in a chair or something didn't work. They thought it was a game and would get up as soon as I turned my back or the kids not being punished would climb in the chair and they would all play (hardly a punishment).
So I started the corner thing. My 4yo is now to the point she has to stay facing the corner with her nose touching the wall and no whining. When she's 5 she will be expected to stand with her toes and nose touching and hands at her side. It worked great with my older kids. Making them stand as still as possible forced them to concentrate on just that and they would calm down quickly.
