My son (8), farts at the table a lot. He farted during dinner and I corrected him. He always says he didn't mean to or it slipped out, but im not buying that. I told him if he farts at the table again, he'll get 70 sentences. He farted at the table while we were playing a game. I gave him the sentences. This morning at breakfast, he did it again. I told him he'll have sentences when he gets home. He cried and said he didn't mean to. I know he's doing it on purpose because he laughs and says it's funny.

I make my kids leave the table. Their dinner time is officially over if they fart or burp at the table.

8 year olds think farting is funny if it's on purpose or accident.

Send him to his room and take away privileges.

His dinner would be over the second it happened.  It's gross.  I don't allow that at the table.

Forget sentences. Make him leave the table and his meal is over. Clearly the "sentences" aren't working. Then start removing privileges. Of course he thinks it's funny but it is completely unacceptable behavior.

He would be leaving the table until finished and then he can return. You can tell when it's on purpose and not.

When we were little and did that, our parents would make us go eat outside on the porch. What really sucked was having to eat out in the hot Texas heat in the dead of summer.

That's disgusting. He would be removed from the table, dinner would be over and he would be put in his room for that. I would take privileges away as well.

That's disgusting and disrespectful. He would get a sit down talk about it with clear rules that he will leave the table and be unable to complete his meal until everyone else is done. He will not be allowed at the table to play games with the family.
