 Well, What works best for your family and kids in terms of disciplining a misbehaving child? Also, what are your kids ages and how's that method working?

The 12 and 10 year old get privileges taken away, grounding, extra chores, no snacks and sentence writing.

The 3 year old gets time outs, tv time taken away, no snacks and on rare occasions a spanking.

We do many things. Timeouts, positive encouragement, soap, and restriction.

My kids are 6, 3, and 18 months. We also have one on the way. These work for our children and all have been adapted to their ages and personalities.

I have also used these methods on the children I babysit. Haven't had an issue with any child in my care.

My son loses privileges or has to sit on his bed and think about his actions. He's 7.

 Since they are teens -- embarrassing them in front of their friends.........and threatening to do so....

Soap??? When I was little my parents use to put a bar of soap in my mouth when I was bad. I got really sick because of it. I hope for your childrens safety and health your not doing that method :(
