And you think telling him to stand in a corner will work at 10 years old? of course it won't!! It is not an age appropriate consequence. Have you tried removing privileges (TV, games, grounding)? Have you tried rewarding him for the times he DOESN'T talk back when you ask him to do something, giving him some reinforcement for the behaviour you want to continue to see from him?

I believe in some cases it is okay to give a spanking on the butt or thighs. All children are different and some don't learn with the time out or taking their toys away. Children need to know that what they are doing isn't right. Spanking is only right when you use it as a last resort. obviously you're not going to spank him or her with just the first time tey do something bad. Children need to know what they are doing is wrong and they need warnings. if after the 3rd time you say something they just take it as a joke or think you wont do anything a spanking is okay. It won't harm them. After the spanking you need to tell your child why he or she was spanked just so they exactly was done wrong and so they wont do it again.

You should have been teaching him how to do a lot of these things from day one. He should have known how to talk to his elders long before the age of 10. Even my 17 year old son knew how to talk to his elders at the age of 3 though he was not as articulate until much older. As a teen now, he talks to his grandparents with a deep respect as he does me. If he does not like something I ask of him and starts to comeplain all I have to do is warn him his game system is gone. THat ends the talk back. He knows I will follow it through. Kids need to learn the rules from a younger age. The longer you wait, the harder it gets, and the more they learn how to walk all over you or use it to their advantage.

In addition to Jodi's questions: Have you explained to him the right way to talk to people? Sometimes the obvious isn't done first.

How old is your child? You have not really explored any real options for disciplining your child.

No child "needs" a spanking. Children only have parents who "want" to give them one. Have you tried other methods?
