off course! I make them have time outs, I talk to them a lot and I find it really important that they get along as brothers. I find that when mom's relaxed, children are too.

when my son misbehavez the best thing to do is to calmly explain what they just did was wrong, and get down to their eye level don't stand over them. my son then has timeoutz. either sitting on the chair with mommy until he has calmed down or on the couch until he is told he can get up. taking away any and all toyz within reach and changing the channel from his TV show/movie. once he has calmed down i remind him what he did was wrong and it was why he was in timeout. we then hug, say our i love youz and go back to normal.

im with you, i don't like shouting or spanking, easiest way i have found is to get eye level with my daughter (2) and simply tell her that she will not act the way she is and explain that if it happens again she will be put in time out. i only give her one warning then i let her know i mean business if she chooses to do it again, then i follow through with time out. she cries and it breakes my heart but i just remember she has to learn right from wrong and believe me it will pay off ing the long run. i used the same thing with my son at that age now he is 9 and when i say no he doesn't test me cause he respects the rules i have made for him over the years.

there are some really good pointers on dr. I'm with you, I hate the shouting thing. It doesn't take a child long to just tune that one out!

I use whats called 1.2.3. magic that i learned in a parenting class. its a form of time out but gives them clear directions. for simple things wrong I count one for the first time he keeps going I count 2 after the third time its straight to time out for the mins. of the age. If its a form of aggression its an attomatic time out plus double the time. It seems to work for my 2 yr old really well.

Hi Jhen...It all depends on the age of your child and what they comprehend...all kids are different so they will react differently to different types of discipline...YOu need to choose your battles with cant just tell them NO without simple explaination on the WHYS...these are the types of disciplinary actions you would take...

1...time outs

2...converscate (sp?) take away favourite toys or items

3...reward program for doing the right thing and show of appreciation (thank yous, big cuddles, hugs and kisses)

4...(last resort)..smacking...
