  • No, we don't spank. I tried it in the past, but I never felt right about it and did not find it to be any more effective than other forms of discipline.

  • I've popped my son's hand here and there but I've come to realize that I'm teaching him to hit when he doesn't like something. And he definitely hits me back. So now I do the time-out thing......it works alot better!

  • We do time out, writing sentences or essays (to make them think about their behavior), taking away privileges, other logical consequences to their actions (such as assigning extra chores to pay us back for time or money that their actions cost us)

  • i have tried taking things away, it doesnt work my stepkids are 10 & 8, they dont care about that. time out they are too old for it didnt bother them, they dont care if they miss out on a swimming trip or any thing. so telling them they cant go somewhere. they have always been spanked but i dont see how it is changing their behavior. i will try they essay thing.
