A punishment needs to be specific to the child and the crime.
If you had twins and one hated tv ... you wouldn't punish that child by taking away tv simply because it works with the other child... even when they are the same age. kwim???
A 3 yr olds understandingof punishment and time are SO different than that of an 8 yr old it would either be crewel towards the 3 yr old or ridiculously ineffective towards the 9 yr old.
