  • Only once. My sons learned they had no second chance. I didn't believe in the "do it before I count to three" or "You get three chances." game. By doing this it teaches them that they don't have to obey for that long. If they didn't understand why I told them something, they were able to ask and we'd discussed it.

  • About twice, maybe three times. Then I let them face the consequences when they decide to do it anyway! That usually works a heck of a lot better than me hollering at them.

  • As many times as necessary and it's as annoying as heck.
