A new kind of discipline
It has always been hard to come up with a punishment that works for Noah. Spanking never worked. Time outs worked for a short while. Losing privileges was what worked the best until recently. Lately that hasn't been working.
Then a few days ago as Noah complained about finishing his homework assignment which included a lot of writing and an idea came to me. Writing lines!
I explained to Noah what writing lines was and that from now on that will be his punishment when he doesn't behave. He was already begging not to write lines and he hadn't even done anything wrong yet.
Noah does NOT like this new punishment. I'm amazed that something so small can do so much.
