i found when son little reward thing worked and taking away
My son is Autistic and ADHD. I've found that spanking is pointless. Can't convince my husband of that, though.
I didn't. DH did. Hasn't done it for months though. I agree that praise and rewards are better.
No, we go to therapy as a family and come up with ways for my son to behave and receive punishments in return- with positve reinforcemenent

Where can u find these books because i struggle with disipline and the whole adhd diagnoses
Quoting KLAWRENCEADHD:Reward based discipline is what works best. It is hard to learn to do this but much more effective in the long run. It is how their brains are wired. Barkley has books on raising children with ADHD or explosive children that are a huge help to parents
Spanking and time outs never worked for my son. He could care less that we "punished" him. We would hold him in "time outs" for hours while he raged on than as soon as he calmed down (hours later), he would go right back to doing what he wasnt suppose to be doing in the first place! Taking away things that my son loves works best - toys, electronics, etc.
I could never strike a child..... not that the thought hasn't crossed my mind. I just can't do it and neither can my husband. I think its because both of us got the "belt" as kids and we both felt it was extreme.
