How old are your kids and what form of discipline do you use? Do you think it is effective?

  • My son is 6 and I spank...its very effective...actually I haven't had to spank him in a while, he's really well behaved and well mannered.

  • My boys are 2 & 4, and the eldest gets "let the punish fit the crime' type of discipline.
    The younger one gets time out or sent to his room (without toys)
    It works the best for their ages, if I have no other choice,and talking/time out/etc doesn't work I will swat them on the butt.
