Do traditional discipline methods work for your kid(s)? What methods do you use if they don't?

Well, I don't really know what traditional methods are But if you are talking time outs and loss of privileges, no they don't really work and never have but we keep doing them anyway because we want to be consistent. Where dd isn't very incentive based, its hard to find something for a loss of privilege that impacts her. She's very "in the moment" so when she's angry, thats all that matters to her....nothing else. So, we can talk at her about privilege loss all we want and she doesn't care so what we do is escort her to her room until she calms down and then implement the loss of privilege which usually sets her off again It can be an endless cycle. We've tried various behavior plans with and without the help of therapists...nothing works long term or even short term for the most part so we always default back to what keeps the peace the most.

My ds responds to time outs well. My dd has been on a level system where she earned privileges

Whet do a behavior mod program because time outs and privelge loss doesn't seem to impact her. She gets a pre-timeout first. We tell her the behavior is unacceptable. They we substitute an appropriate behavior. After that we practice the behavior. If it happens again, we do overcorrection. We state the inappropriate behavior. Then we state what the appropriate behavior would be. Then we practice it 5 times. If she is unwilling to practice, we sit in a quiet spot with minimal interaction with parents and no toys, until she is ready to practive again. It seems to be working better than anything else, since it eliminates the parent-child struggle. The child knows what they did wrong, they know the correct behavior to do instead, and removal from "punishment" is entirely child directed, since we have told her what needs to happen for her to be able to go back and play. If she doesn't want to practice, we don't and she sits in quiet time until she is ready.
