Have you ever heard of this? I know a family that practice this ( some of the worse kids I have ever been around), I was wondering if other people know families like this, and are the children well behaved?

And I mean no time outs, no grounding nothing.

 I've never heard of that.  How do they learn consequences?

As far as I can tell they don't.

I think* its based on positive reaction to positive behavior. Parents use logic, open conversations, and modeling to influence their childrens behavior.

That "punishment"s aren't appropriate because behavior issues are part of age/stage something just part of being a kid and the learning experiences.

Having said that... it is not something we practice! (At least not as the only answer, sometimes it is the best way to teach. We do time-outs and take away toys/tv, etc when needed. Moderation ppl, moderation.

No, kids need negative attention to negative behavior. Aka time out, loss of a prove ledge ect. Just as much as they need patience and understanding. No discipline at all does seem logical to me.

I usually don't pay close enough attention usually to know if they punish or not.

You don't feel that when they grow up and are punished for their wrong doing, that they may act out or not be able to except punishment? We do live a world where you are punished.

Some say I don't punish.. but we have rules and expectations. When rules are not followed they don't get rewarded but I have never grounded my kids either. We talk about logical consequences and how when they are older if they don't follow rules there are consequences. My boys are teenagers now and extremely well behaved.
