How were you disciplined as a child – Part 4


4- I was beat, my mom was single and my older sister was a bit out of control. If one us misbehaved, both of us got punished, physically and mentally. I’ve blocked out some of those times but still remember. In my opinion, that kind of punishment is horrible and doesn’t work. My kids will never be physically or verbally abused. I plan to do time out, a reward system, and I will be creative as well, as in if one of my kids skips school then I will be attending with them.
