I think it depends on what kinds of things he's doing. At that age maybe things like: 1. taking away his allowance if he gets one 2. taking away car keys if he drives 3. more chores 4. restricting his time with his friends But other than mouthing off, what has he done that you want to discipline him for?

I have a 16 yr old and thankfully he isn't mouthy at all to me. My 19 yr old did go threw this and we would take the car away or make him take his little sister for an outing as a punishment. He bought his own car, but I told him that he couldn't get away with acting like that threw life, so he had to hand over the keys when he was mouthy. He got over it very quickly after a few nights with no car, so no way to get anywhere.

Sunshine, I see you've done some of the things my daughter did. I had forgotten that she's started making her almost 20 year old take his brother, who is 15 1/2, out with him at times. She told him that his brother is a teenager and likes to get out with the kids, too. So he's begun to do that some now. It not only is sort of a punishment for him, but a help to her.

My daughter, who is a single Mom of 4 (3 teenagers and one 12 1/2), has always controlled hers through their possessions and things they do. She has an almost 20 year old who has his freedom most of the time, as does her 18 year old daughter. But, when things aren't going right and the mouth comes out, they still know Mom OWNS the truck or car they drive. She owns the cell phones they use, too. She has made believers of them when she's taken away the car/truck and phones. She used to take away the computers, but they have their laptops now. Also, she puts up the Playstation games,too. The only thing she doesn't have a handle on is making the older son do his part with cutting grass, taking out trash, or cleaning his room. He works on a hard job and has a steady girlfriend that she's sure will be her daughter-in-law one day. So she's told her that she'll inherit the way he does with the grass/room, etc. Hasn't bothered her one bit.
