My kids have to put their noses on the wall while standing with their hands behind their backs.

What works great for you?

We have a 15 month old dd who likes to hit and give attitude when she gets told no. We just put her in the playpen with no toys for a little bit.

My 14 mth old gets sat down om the couch for one minute she hates it!! She is slightly better after. Lol.

There is generally no need for punishment or discipline in our home. We have open communication that involves love and respect for all members of our family.

Depends on what they've gotten in trouble for.....if they can't get along, they get to wear the 'get along' shirt.

Then there's time outs and losing privileges. Writing letters of apology. All kinds of fun things!!

punishment equals the crime here, we have to be creative to get through to my son, so for instance, he runs on the stairs-he has to go all the way up and down 5 times...stomping feet-go stomp in front of the house for 3 minutes...slam a door-open and close door 25 times......sounds silly, but it works!

My daughter does well with positive reinforcement. But when she does something that is too terrible for any type of subtle correction, time out on the bench in our entry way works best.

It would depend upon her age and what the infraction was.  When she was in Girl Scouts and we were planning a trip to a water/amusement park she decided to act up in public.  I was Assistant Troop Leader and the day of the event she stayed home and I went with the Troop to the park.  Had a great time, brought home lots of souveniers..for ME and nothing for her.  I used privleges and rewards.  Worked great during her teen years.
