My 8 year old son teases his siblings from the minute he wakes up in the morning until the minute he goes to bed at night. I know kids tease, but this is getting out of hand. It is really disrupting the whole house. Does anyone have any displine strategies that they have used for this same issue that have worked? Thank you so much for any ideas you might have.Answer Question

Whenever my girls fight and cannot get along, I only NOW have to threaten then with Chores!! A few times I emptied all the llinens from the linen closet(From Parent Magazine) and put it in a gigantic pile and they had to work together and fold it and put it all away the way I had it or I would dump it all over the floor again. It works. They hate having to do chores like that. They love to help me around the house but being made to organize the linen closet is pure agony. If that doesn't work because you have a boy, make him move a rock pile from one end of the backyard to the other side. Some maual labor might get him to make smarter choices and have more respect in the household. If a child grows up respecting noone, they will not respect themselves or anyone else as they get older. Nio it in the bud now before it gets worse.
