  • Time outs for all age that are able to understand, about 18 months?
    Soap no way no matter what age
    Spanking at last resort after the age of 2.

  • Taking away THE most important thing in the world to them. Works for us.

  • I would say also time outs for all ages. The use of soap if the child repeatly uses bad words. Spankings as a last resort when all else has failed.

  • I would say it is up to the parent to decide. Every parent has their own individual disciplinary style and should make that choice. I don't think it should be up to me to tell others what is acceptable.
