I've tried to punish and teach my 5 yr old about attitudes and talking back to adults but she only does it with me!!!!!! people have told me put her in the garage for 5 min or have her kneel on rice and hold her hands out some told me to whoop her but with the belt others have said beat her everyday till she understands !?!?!? I'f i tell her to stop jumping on the couch and I put her in the corner 10 min later she's back at it again then I'll give her pow pow and time out in the corner 10 min later she's doing it again , others have suggested to tell her tyhat I'm calling a new family for her?! what do I doAnswer Question
Calling a new family for her? That sounds a bit harsh. Definitely not something I would say to my kids. Kneel on rice? I haven't heard that one before now. Jumping on the couch? I give one warning. Don't listen, they get spanked. With a belt? Nah, I'll pass on that. What the hell would putting her in the garage do?! Mine would love to be in there exploring and finding new stuff to get into.

I feel like this. When my children talk to me, I listen. I don't moan and groan when they need me to get up for the umpteenth time to get them something. If I ask them to do something, they need to listen. Time outs in a CORNER never worked for my kids. But the time for spanking has passed. I found that my son HATES taking a time out on his bed. And my 4 year old responds easiest to polite "low" talk. Try different things and see what she responds to.

I'm kind of lost on the rice thing. What does that do?

Wouldn't it be like sitting on a bean bag?
