I let my kids choose their punishment

They have 3 options:

Grounded from ALL activities for a week( this includes family outings)

A spanking

Grounded from all material possessions(toys,games, TV, phone, computer, etc)


They are only allowed to change their punishment once a month.

Otherwise they would switch it to suit their desires. Ex: oh I have nothing planned for this week so I'll just give up activity privileges. It doesn't work like that lol


So guess which one they prefer and guess which is most effective(IMO)

well they have a choice of time out or pop on the hand and they actually usually choose the pop on the hand but they can choose it each time.

what happens if they get in trouble more than once?  what if they pick grounding, for example, and then get in trouble again & pick grounding again.  theoretically, they kid could end up grounded for months at a time.

well since your kids are old enough to understand and verbalize what option they will choose, they probably almost always choose the spanking, because they know its only going to hurt for a minute and its a short lived punishment yay for you.
