Dh and I are trying to change up our disciplining. Up till now we mostly do warnings, spankings, time outs and only a couple of natural consequences. Now we want to do more natural consequences. As the kids are getting older, we need some different tecniques.
I'm trying to find a natural consequence for not listening/disobeying when we tell ds to do something or to stop doing something. That is our main problem with ds. He follows rules and treats his sister well. He is a good helper also, but he doesn't want to follow dirrection. It takes a time out or spanking to get him to listen just about every time, so obviously our discipline isn't helping to correct the behavior (which is always my goal, not to punish but to cause them to do better next time). What are some natural consequences I could use to help him to listen and obey?
