Recently two responders suggested stripping the room as punishment for poor attitude. Removing almost everything and making the child earn back belongings. Has anyone done this? How did it work? Was it successful short or long term?
It worked and it was long term. At that stage my child was doing things to test me. I had threatened and had to act when she challenged me. It was hard being a mom and your child sleeping on the floor (it was carpet and she had plenty of blankets), but she had to learn who was the boss. She still gets snippy at times, but she now knows I won't back down.

Thankfully, we have not had to go to that extreme with our kids. We have removed all electronics from DD11's room because of a bad attitude, but really what helps her be a better kid is visiting a friend who has a 3 year old little brother. I think she can appreciate the peace in her own life so much more after that. lol
