Do you ground your children?
Do you put things in time-out for a time as a disciplinary measure?
Do you find yourself saying things like: “That toy is out for 3 days, or 3 weeks!”
Then the quote below might offer some helpful advice for ya:
Whatever the discipline is (no TV, no bike, etc.); I never say how long it will be for. I just tell her when I feel she deserves it, the discipline will be over. So, I don’t say ‘no bike’ for a month, and after a week feel bad and give it back. I just say, ‘No bike. You’ll get it back when I think you deserve it.’ This works great for me and I also have no guilt to deal with when I calm down.
