How do you / would you discipline your kids?
With my children, depending on what they have done, they either get a talk with which we try to figure out why, what, how of the behaviour, or a stern talking to, or grounding from privileges, such as computer, gamecube, staying up later etc etc. It is all according to what they have done. Previously in their younger years we did spank some, but not a major amount. I tend to look at the severity of the situation and then figure out which approach suits.

How I displine my children has changed as they have got older. What is suitable punishment for a toddler is not suitable for a teenager. I think as they have got older removing their privileges has been the most effective. But what works for one child wont always work for another. I have found, grounding, removing their pc rights and confiscating their phones works the best for my teenagers.

I find the threat of witholding pocket money is an incentive to behave. But I also like to reward good behaviour.

Definitely Maxine, I try to always reward my kids for their good behaviour. It really goes a long way.

I agree with that maxine. I withhold playstations, tv etc for bad behaviour.

I tend not to reward genral good behaviour as I expect that to a certain degree. But if they have been really well behaved in a say boring shopping trip or the like, they get rewarded for that.

Bad language and violence usually works in my house! :blink: :laugh:

Seriously, my son is generally quite well behaved, but if he is naughty I usually shout at him and then make him either go upstairs in his bedroom (he's too young to think that's a good thing!) or if I'm really really mad I make him write out 100 lines of whatever he's done wrong. ie: I must not be rude to my mum. By the time he's written those lines down we've both calmed down and are ready to start a fresh fight!

Have you tried keepingup with a 10 year old?! It ends up me being punished not him!
