I say, string the kid upside-down by the toes and force him/her to ingest lima beans and Brussel sprouts. Or something equally disgusting and poisonous.

But on the other hand, lecturing works pretty fine too. Twenty minutes of pure boredom can cure me of nearly anything.

I used to get hit with the wooden spoon when I was acting up as a kid..and you know what? It worked. I was an Emotionally Disturbed child and that is the only thing that worked, and I'm glad that my parents weren't hesitent in giving me that punishment.

I dont' want to hit my kids. But I'm not against it. because I don't have kids I can't really say what I'll do, but I hope that my kids aren't bad enough to warrant a a spanking. I'd much rather have a child that was bright enough to understand that making mom/dad upset with them is punishment enough.

...but this world isn't perfect and I will be the disciplinary force in my home if the need arises...

I agree with Genjiworks, that its actually all up to the child, if they get cocky and out of controll, in a way that they seem it to be ok to scream, cry out or thrown things, wether it be publicly or privately over such a small matter like candy for instance(useing the most common reason for fibs on the part of a child, just go to a shopping mall or something and see for youreself) then there obviously is something wrong with how the child is being raised

when i was little, i was spanked, until my parents got a divorce. my mom still did, but not much, she just grounded me, took things away...it worked a lil here and there...

how would you punish your kids? how do you think you should?

i would do all sorts of fun things. like if they didnt do well in school, i wouldnt let them eat dinner. id send them to bed hungry....and then when they wake up, id beat them for existing....

wait no, thats not it. i would stop feeding them correctly. like, instead of dinner, they get peanutbutter, some bread and parsely, and orange juice. or like uncooked salmon and pre-ripened tomatoes.

if they were acting up, i would make them go sit in the shower in their clothes, and id turn it on. theyd have to sit there for an hour, like timeout. only the water would be pretty cold. not hypothermia cold, but not comfortable.

if they refused to pick up their room, i would completely cover it in seran-wrap and duct-tape for a week. then they couldnt play with shit!

maybe id turn their bed upside down, and theyd have to sleep with the matress on THEM.

oh, heres one...if they sat there playing videogames all day and wouldnt go outside, i would turn the heat in the house up to about 105, lock the thermostack, and hang out until they left. oh!

if they were just being generally irritating, i would bury them up to their waists out in the yard for a few hours. id give em an ubrella so they wouldnt get a sunburn. "alright kids, get into the bury-hole!"


...and why don't you make them eat from a doggie bowl and call them Fido and Spanky while you're at it?

Don't beat kids. They need explanation. They need attention. Speak to them calmly, try to understand and remind them their misbehavior.


You're too lenient. Beat the shit out of the little bastards.

I'm honestly too lazy to read the other pages.
My ethics class was baised around this last class. And for example, how children lie. If you remember the first time you lied, and your parents hit you, what did it really teach you to do? It did instill some fear in you, but it generally just made you a better liar. You grew to become good at lying and learn whos easier to lie to than another.
And to be honest once more, I'd probally beat my children until they hit a state of mute because my tolerance for children isn't that great. Maybe it's because I grew up with younger siblings, and even if I do have kids I'm going to try to raise them properly so they don't turn into animals and require daily beatdowns.
But this also reminds me of that lady who adopted 10 kids and kept them in cages. One little boy wasn't potty trained so she kept him in the bathroom for 38 days. And she'd hose them down in their piss-filled cages to clean 'em. Just makes you love parents, eh? =]
But moving back to the subject, punishment only goes so far, once the kid realizes that the parents can only take away so much from them. -shrugs-

^^ That's why I pray that my kids are sensitive and kind enough to realize that the real punishment is hurting your parents feelings. I had really great parents and they would stress the fact that beyond the immediate consequences of my actions I had betrayed their trust. That each time I did that it made them a little more sad and disappointed inside their hearts. Those words screwed my head up and made me think a lot about my actions. (The wooden spoon helped too) I just hope that my children have the capacity to realize it as well.

Well, I think Kohlberg's Theory of moral development has some truth that explains this:
According to Kohlberg, we move through the stages of moral development (and reasoning) in 6 stages and 3 levels

Pre-conventional Level
Stage 1. Punishment and Obedience Orientation: Morality judged in terms of consequences; actions that lead to rearwards are considered good while the ones that lead to punishments are considered bad or unacceptable.
Stage2. Naive Hedonistic Orientation: Morality judged in terms of what satisfies own needs or those of others. For example a child would say "the man should not steal the cookies because if he does he will be punished"

Conventional Level
Stage 3. Good Boy-Good Girl Orientation: Morality judged in terms of adherence to social rules or norms with respect to personal acquaintances.
Stage 4 Social Order-Maintaining Orientation: Morality judged in terms of social rules or laws applied universally, not just acquaintances.

Post-conventional Level
Stage 5Legalistic Orientation: Morality judged in terms of human rights, which may transcend current social laws
Stage 6 Universal Ethical Principle Orientation: Morality judged in terms of self-chosen ethical principles

In the last two, people who reach this level follow abstract and ethical principles, not concrete rules like the 10 commandments for example, and are based on inner conscience rather than external sources of authority.

I barely know about this theory,maybe lusurpher knows more about this.

I'd look into this more, but I'm not going to have a child anytime soon so no worries. Little buggers.

I think I would avoid punishing them as much as possible. One thing I will mention quicky that is taken from experience is never ever threaten to punish for something and don't carry though with it. In hand with that is make sure its worth punishing before threating. If you dont, this either shows you don't have the ability to go though with it or you believe you were wrong by threatening in the first place. Be as consistent as possible. Its also important to not punish ordinary behavior which you see as bad.

A quick search revealed that I would favor a disciplinary approach rather then a punitive approach. Going with Mauz's post my point would be bring them up the ladder then have them remain at the dont do this because of bad consequences to you stage. http://www.indianchild.com/child_discipline_punishment.htm
