I wanted to see what you ladies do for punishments? I am not starting a debate just asking, if this bothers you, you don't have to answer.
Do you try to find a punishment that fits the crime? Do you do the same punishment all the time no matter what?
My oldest is 7 almost 8 and were having a few problems with her. I had a post a few months ago about problems at school and being mean to us at home. I am still working on this issue with her and I asked the school to step in and help me figure it out.
Anyways, lately she has been lying. Just about little things nothing harmful but I don't like the lies! She is also name calling and they are not so nice! She heard it from the boy next door and I had to tell his mom he can no longer stand in our driveway to wait for the bus.
But here we do time out, thats a big one. But when my older 2 slam doors out of anger I make them open and close the door the right way 20 times.
The only one that doesn't understand fully of time out is my 3yr old. he just looks at you funny like what!
