What alternative punishments (Other than spanking) do you use to get a point across when your child has been naughty? Effective methods.For me, I will usually sit them down, look them in the eye and tell them what they did wrong and why it's wrong and have them come up with ways to make amends. I do send them to their rooms, take away privaledges if it's bad enough. I've found that giving them alone time to think things through really helps. So guys, no it's your turn. Tell me! :)

We do spank, but only for serious, repetitive trangressions.

Usually it's a grounding or taking away things they like - toys, computer time, etc.

We've never had to spank.  Habitual spanking as punishment tends to create angry people, not necessrily contrite ones.  Our methods are similar to the OP's. Interfering with our children's passions usually catches their attention.  My daughter, for instance, would do anything she could to ensure she would get to spend time with her horse; while my son was very absorbed in his art.  Therefore, we knew exactly what currencies to use when disciplining our children.

What did you do to discipline them without using spankings?
