My kids have to put their noses on the wall while standing with their hands behind their backs.
What works great for you?
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.
nothing. =( times sort of do. sigh
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.
