IMO i feel that live and learn method is more effective then the your not allowed. Sometimes just telling your child no works but others it doesnt. i feel that if i tell my son to stop jumping off the couch because he will get hurt more the 2 times then he is on his own and if he gets hurt i dont want to hear him cry. In the beginning he would keep doing it until he got hurt one time and i sent him to his room (after checking out the boo boo of course) now when he is doing something dangerous all i have to do is tell him that im only going to say stop twice then if you get hurt i dont want to hear it, and he will stop no questions no argument. IMO boys will be boys do i see a broken bone in his future absolutely..so i want to see him break a bone absolutely not..but he needs to learn from experience. And the debate is on CM...

A little bit of both, but mostly live and learn (also know as love and logic). Basically the consequence of the action is it's own punishment. Don't want to wear your hat, your head will be cold. Jump off the couch, hurt your arm. Don't treat your friends with respect, no one plays with you..... This is the technique I go with unless I know there could be some seriously dangerous consequences.
