That was done to me ... TV, sent to room, books ( I was a voracious reader) etc. It never worked. In fact, it probably made it worse as I had nothing to do.
I can remember visiting the grandparents in Philly, and their neighbor cutting a switch from the willow tree when one of their kids was not behaving....
Today I went to lunch and sat near a mother w/ two children no older than 9..I thought "oh great so much for quiet time" but I looked over and one was reading the newspaper and the other was reading a rather thick book! They finshed eating and the boy came over to me and asked if I would like the paper since he was done with, walked over to his table and told his mother he would pay for the tip.
They were from a boarding school near my work.
That all it took for me............the threat of the belt was all it took......knowing it would be followed through with not just an idle threat.
she told me i was her only
all my dad had to do was show me his belt. never got spanked with a belt, but god damn...i didn't even want to think about how bad it would hurt.
Hey! It hasn't been that long since I graduated high school!!
I think the reason I wasn't charged with anything was most likely because I have a way with words.
Principal: Why on earth did you stab "insert name here" in the thigh with a pencil? You know there is going to be some sort of disciplinary action?
Me: Because while in class, "insert name here" wouldn't stop getting friendly and I warned him of the consequences. And because the teacher you pay to supervise this class wouldn't do anything about it, I had to take action into my own hands. So, actually, I don't think there is going to be any disciplinary actions.
Principal: Oh. Well I'm terribly sorry and have a nice day.
Yeah..........*hand waves* these aren't the droids you're looking for *hand waves*
I just lashed myself then stabbed myself with a pencil. Kind of enjoyed it.
I like the idea of smacking your kid when he/ she wakes up. That made me laugh.
I am a firm beliver in following thru with threats/consequences. My mom never made a threat she wasn't prepared to follow thru with so we learned pretty quick that even if the consequences seemed harsh, they WOULD happen. Did we get a spanking now and again, sure, do I really remember 'em...nope. I remember the beatings I got from my brother a heck of a lot more.
bingo. being consistent is key, otherwise it sends mixed messages.
