My 4yo DD was banging on her window with a toy, she knows she is not supposed to do this. I HATE yelling and I hate spanking. It doesnt work like it used to and I feel guilty after and she always wants a hug and a kiss after because her feelings are hurt and it breaks my heart. Well I was kind of spying on her doing this, knowing that if I simply told her to stop she would resume as soon as I left the room. I grabbed my trusty air horn and honked it into her room and scared the crap out of her and said "Dont bang on your window, that is naughty". She actually stopped lol 


Btw it was a cheap dollar store air horn lol

lol! but those things are pretty loud, I would be concerned about her hearing if it was used a lot. I clap or stomp my foot when I see my kids doing stuff they are not supposed to.

It was a dollar store one, it didnt hurt my ears and all and she was across the room from me so I figured it wasnt so bad. lol
