  • If my DD gets too out of hand, usually a pat on the behind does the trick. Its not usually the first thing I do, but when shes making a scene or hurting or biting or.. just going nuts. She knows whats going to happen. Nothing more than a little pat on the pull up.

  • Time out or go to his room until he's sorry or he has calmed down. If he acts up in the store we leave. It wasn't always the easiest when I had a cart full of food but I did leave 2 times before he learned that we don't misbehave at the store. All in all it was worth it.

  • used to do the hand slap thing but that turned into him trying to hit back.. we now do time out til he calms down and realises what was wrong & says sorry.. its working great.. i grew up on being spanked so im not against it but only as long as your not actually hurting them..

  • We never strike our children. We use redirection. Change of scenery. Grounding. Talking. We have weekly allowance and they get points off if they misbehave which equals less money. In school for my rising 1st grader if she moves "a clip" she will not get something after school, if she is good we stop at Sonic for a half price soda or whatever.

  • It depends on the age and what they have done. I usually try and make the punishment fit the crime. I've used everything from spanking to writing assignments. If they argue with each other I used to make them sit on the floor facing each other and say 10 nice things about each other. The only one I didn't spank was my son, because I listened to the experts. Out of 3 grown children, he is the only one who does not respect authority. I now visit him in jail every weekend. At least until August. Someone else is teaching him to respect authority at a much bigger price than a swat on the rear end. Never again will I listen to any expert on anything. Now I have an 8 year old that I don't have problems with. Why? Because good behavior is expected and not rewarded, other than the self-satisfaction of knowing she is doing the right thing.
