It depends on the "crime". Something small can earn a "time out" or no TV.  Something more severe you can take away games or privileges. I'm old school though. When all else fails, nothing beats a little "Leather Therapy"...

Go old school-  make the misbehaving child stand facing the corner (got my attention when it happened to me).

#2 | 1209 days ago

As a kid i faced a lot of punishments therefore it is extremely hard for me to punish another kid

#3 | 1209 days ago

Since kids tend to be spoiled little brats these days with the cell phones, PSP, etc - simply threaten to take them away.  They can't survive w/o technology. 
#5 | 1209 days ago

I beat children.


and i make my little brother sit in the room with no tv, radio, anything, and not move. hehehe. that's my favorite. when i walk by and he's sitting there pouting, looking all dumb, twiddling his thumbs, it makes me smile. ha. good times.

today it would be............NOOOOOOOOOOO PLAYSTATION........NOOOOOOOOOOO COMPUTER........and NOOOOOOOOOOO CELL PHONES......hit em where it hurts !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#7 | 1209 days ago

I take my daughters Cell Phone away, or my laptop, PS2, Something that really means something to her.  I could make her do something, but I find her texting or something while doing it.  I find taking her stuff away if way more effective.

My son was an angel. Did nothing wrong as a child or anything.  My Daughter, complete opposite.  He is day, She is night.

I used to tell my sons- I can go to jail for not taking care of you or i can go to jail for killing ur azz when you F' up- which one you think i can live with----- Jason got the hint and he's 3 1/2 years younger than Jr.
This is a good punishment ____

"O man  wot  I done now ?!?!" < excuses from a teen boy next door neighbour sent his sister a message  trying to bribe my sons for demanding to know the newest games, I just bought yesterday for their new gamming system Kinect  x box 360 for Crimbo. The teen got too selfish and upset I didn't like his manners due to the lack of respect and  jealousy  went over to talk to his mother and she wasn't aware of it  for what her son  was doing behind her back for days. Unfortunately  serves her son rights not to come over to my house til he get used to the manners respect other people's home and the responsibilities. ( not sticking his nose to other ppl's property) Oh yea I blocked him from the Live X Box nickname that serves him right ... sighs.. hope someone  learns a lesson.

 Spouses? wtf? Who "punishes" their spouse? 

Grounding sucks, BTW...while often necessary, it punishes the parents too. 

I usually take stuff away and/or add to unpaid chores.

 We've done that with Kiernan too - and the invisible chair. Now that she's older, those don't work as well anymore (she's figured out that some things are worth the temporary pain or boredom), but we used them a lot a couple of years ago.

We also used to put a drop of Tobasco on her tongue for lying or mouthing off. That doesn't work anymore either - she loves hot stuff now

when I punished my children, my wife and I usually took their favorite toy,game or video game away and have them sit on a chair for an hour .

one of the teachers for my grade 9 class would make us do that 0.0 
#15 | 1209 days ago

I agree with a lot of others.  All that tech stuff that they have (although mine not get it all ... useless crap that no 9 year old needs) would be taken away.  
Time-outs would work, I think, if done properly (I watch a lot of Supernanny so I'm obviously an expert now).  
Spanking is sort of one of those gray areas for me.  I don't think it's wrong, per se, but I don't think it always accomplishes the goal.  I think if it's not done to the extreme, then it's fine. 

Punishing my spouse wouldn't be necessary.  We're already married.  
#16 | 1209 days ago

 I'd like to see any of you try grounding or punishing the head spinning kid in my classroom. 

Actually though, for the most part, what works with my students is my disappointment mixed in with a dash of missing recess and a dose of principal chit chat.

A) Some spouses might like the use of a little physical punishment They're called good eggs
B) I think parents are p*ssies when it comes to their kids.  I remember the days of taking a belt across my backside.  Evidently I racked disciprine.. And the racist overtones never made it hurt less.  But anyway, I don't want to be my future kids' friend until they can gamble and drink, if they deserve it, a little physical punishment WILL keep them in line, and I am not above using psychological mind f*ck games to keep the upper hand..standing in the corner does nothing, and it's a waste of everyone's time

#20 | 1209 days ago

I've used the sitting quietly in a chair alone and the nose in the corner.  If they spoke or turned around or got up  5 or 10 mins were added on each time.  Also used the grounded rule a few times, that one was always more inconvenient to me than them.  I have also used the hand to the butt also,  switches to the legs and belt to the butt.     Todays kids would definitly need the gadgets taken away and no tv or dvds or four-wheelers or what ever else they own these days, along with the standing in the corner.  Todays children need this quiet and alone time more than ever to think about life and what is really important to them.  It's up to parents to guide their thoughts in the right direction and the parents should ask questions when their time is up about what they have been thinking about.  It can be a very close time for them.

What did I miss???  Who's punishing their spouses?!?!?  I 100% agree with you, Jess! that is completely WRONG to do!  in my opinion, anyone in a relationship in which your partner is punishing you (unless it's of the naughty variety ) needs to get out of that relationship!


I never made my son do hard labor, like that, at an early age. Since he doesn't live with me anymore, his mom does the punishing. Since he is 13, his punishments consist of not going out, getting his cell phone taken away and no video games. Not sure what else??

When I was a kid, I had this babysitter that I had the hots for and she would spank me whenever I acted up. I got a cheap sexual thrill out of the spankings, so I would purposely cuss or annoy my sisters.
