Do you use timeout or another sort of alternative to deal with 'bad' behaviour?

I do use timeouts, but I don't know that they really work for Gaby anymore/now - I find out sticker chart to be a better tool, she absolutely HATES getting sad faces

We do timeouts, and taking away toys and things. Spanking if things get really out of hand.

Timeouts never seemed to work, so removal of privileges. Spanking for grossly unsafe behavior or absolute refusal to listen.

We're starting a behavior chart for her, too.

Time-outs or removal of toys/activities.
They get swatted if they are being absolutely rotten and are hurting a sibling or the like.

My oldest is our biggest challenge because nothing phases him so he gets swats quite often cuz he just gets absolutely mean to his brothers when he's in a snit and enjoys it(literally laughs and giggles when making them cry). Activities taken works best on him.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

I think the removal of toys/priveleges is going to be a big thing that I use as gaby gets older.... and probably Emersyn
