Is punishing children with exercise effective? or morally wrong?

I just made a 6 year old do 5 burpees for burping in the kitchen. Then realized I have no clue what cafemom would think of me??? Please let me know if what I do is acceptable to your standards. I cannot live without this knowledge.

Is there anything that I can clarify?

Using exercise as punishment doesn't make sense to me but to each their own. I do however use burpees to threaten my baseball and soccer players when they misbehave. It works. They hate burpees SO bad!

I can tell you from experience that having exercise used as a punishment flat out made me refuse to do it if I didn't have to for a long time.

I've always hated exercise and was never punished with it as a child. We do fun exercises also. So maybe I won't traumatize tooooooo much, lol.

I don't do it because I don't want them to attach negative feelings to physical activity.
