Post subject: ? Discipline 3&3/4
Harry is 4 in July, at the moment his behaviour is becoming shocking! This morning he slapped me in the face, I slapped his leg which i feel really bad about but I reacted in anger. Im not proud of it but Im at a stage where sitting on the naughty step isnt working reward charts not working and he isnt listening to a word I say or anyone else.
What do you use to discipline your little ones?

my eldest is two, and sometimes he shocks me with his behaviour. my husband is best had displine cus im jst too soft. however i find for bed wrks. thers no toys in the room n goin to bed wen it isnt time, he finds upsettin so he knows he done wrong (he doesnt nap in his room in the day). another thing that wrks for me is taking his comforts away or toys.
however i know the only times, he is like it are four reasons----
1) lack of fresh open air to burn of energy
4) fustration- often due to not understanding why (so now i always explain why and that its ok to b upset but its not ok to hit)
i also try and get him to express his angrer more positively thru words or running fast on the spot, or counting. most effective is to strt singing really loud an action nursery rhyme. (this distracts him from being angry and gives me focus to de stress)
sorry i cnt b more help, its all i got

Post subject: all kids are different
Some kids just need a good butt whooping. But then you've got those ones that it diesnt work for. So the corner is good. But I don't think u should feel bad for popping him unless you left a bruise or he's bleeding. I pop my kid when needed And as bad as we feel because momss never want to hurt their babies its how they learn. A good talk to follow that after u send him to his room so u both can calm down is great. I always tell my son if I have to pop him why I did it and that I'm ary I hurt him but he shouldn't have been mean too me. They understand. More than u think. If u don't teach him not to hurt ppl then when he gets in school someone else will. Sometimes a good poppin is a good lesson.
