Take what they like best. Take all their electronics. The cell phones, games, computers, IPODs, televisions, radios, etc.
Hello Liberty & thanks for your response. Trust me when I say--we had already stripped his room of everything & the only time he was allowed to get on a computer was for homework assignment(s) & it had to be his mother's pc.

Thanks so much my sister Destee for taking the time out to respond to my post. Trust me when I say, my wife nor I are corporal punisher(s) of our sons. . . However, we will punish them for their "intentional" wrongdoings. Now, as kids, my wife would spank their behinds if they got out of line (public places, church, etc.) but normally, all I had to do is give them a "look" & whatever mischief going on was ceased immediately. Honestly, I can count the times I had to administer corporal punishment to any of our sons. I took my belt to our oldest son (now 22) who was caught holding down weed for a friend in his book bag @ his high school back then but I felt that was the ONLY resort in such a case. He knew better from the beginning & due to the seriousness of it, felt I had to deal with him in that manner. But whippings, in our household, are normally (always) a last resort.

Welcome to Destee. Stick around

I wanted to add that, though I never believed in corporal punishment, I always reserved the right. And, I never judge parents who choose corporal punishment. (within reason)

I don't believe that what works for one child necessarily works for another. And, if I found that the discipline tactics I used weren't enough, I would have to up he ante as well.

I understand exactly the difference you layed out regarding willful disobedience warranting a whole 'nother kind of discipline.

Hopefully, your son learned his lesson, and his brother learned by witness, and you wont have to do this again.

Thanks Clyde & just know that I am a firm believer in "sparing the rod does spoil that child" saying.



Not a problem edward67, no, not at all ... Understood, otherwise you would have never put the "switch" in effect:), as some have claimed.

At the end of the day, no one can tell a parent how to discipline their child. The parent knows best or at least should; notwithstanding, there are those that don't make good parents, at which point outside intervention would be appropriate.
