Anyone have any? My stepson seems like writing sentences isn't working. He gets so distracted while he is doing it. And it takes him hours to finish one page of sentences.

Depends on the crime

I like to make the kids wash walls, I do make them write sentences sometimes, do other chores, take away tv and games, ground to their room, ect. It just depends on what they do

what is the offense?  the punishment has to fit the crime

The punishment should be a logical consequence of the offense. Writing as punishment fosters a dislike of writing. I wouldn't go there.

Make him stand against the wall and squat.  Arms outstretched.  He's 7 so for 7 minutes.  My 7 year old son HATES this.  He has done a pretty good job of not taking himself to the wall because of not liking it.

i get VETY creative with my kids and switch up punishments based on their personalities...some of my tried and true...daughter slams the door? open and close the door 50 times...son stomps up stairs? stomp up and down the sidewalk out front for 5 minutes, etc
If you give some examples of the crimes i may be able to think up an appropriate consequence.
