Do you put your kids in time out when they are bad?

I believe in disapline so when my kids are bad they have to sit in time out. They have to relize what they did was not right and learn a lesson by it. If you don't disapline your children they think they can get away with anything. They even might get the point where they will not take no for a answer. At that point it will turn into a living nightmare. I want my kids to respect others and do the right thing. If the do something bad they should get punished.

Yes. I have put my daughter in time out when she was bad. It did not work too well for her though. She threw worse fits in time out than she did before going there. she ended up with a small spanking.

My daughter gets time out if she doesn't behave. Sometimes she puts herself in time out if she knows she did something bad. lol. I think its important to have some form of disapline for our children because kids will walk all over you if they don't have any disapline. Disapline teaches our children to correct their bad behaviour.

We do use time out but only for minor offenses because we feel it is a lenient form of discipline. We do spank for the worst offences, but we also make them write lines, do chores that are not their own daily jobs. I take things away as well like the TV or wii. All goes by how bad the offence though.

Hi tuckersheri. I guess this is second i'm differing from your thoughts. If you arrest your kids freedom then he don't know what is right and wrong. If he commited any mistake then he will came to know that he did bad and later he won't be repeating same mistake. Even though if he tries to do same mistake again and again then parent should sit with kid and discuss about that matter. I guess in this way they understand more than getting punishment. Right Well these are my thoughts i shared with you. If you don't like it then I apologise. happy mylotting.
