Two completely different questions, not related to each other at all.
If you want to pass on a love of reading to your children, what techniques do you use?
For the other question: do you spank your child, use time out, talk to them, or what other ways do you use to get them to obey you?
To pass on a love of reading to my kids, I read to them when they're younger and for the older one I try to make sure I can get her the books she wants. Most of the time it means going to the library but some I've had to buy them. As for discipline, I will only spank if they do something dangerous, such as playing with a lit candle. I first talk to my kids and make sure they know and understand why something they did was wrong and if they knew better, I take away a privilege, such as making them miss out on a dessert or missing their turn to pick out a movie, to them the worst punishment is getting kicking off the video games.
