What is the correct way to punish a child?

When i was growing up we got the belt, board, switch, and hand if we were lucky! I always saw it as punishment for something i did wrong but now people are saying that it is abuse!

So how do you punish your child the correct way?

good question. i was alway shouted at and smacked really hard.

i dont think hitting a child is right.
however i dont think there is a 'right' way of punishing a child... there are many ways it could b done and different things effect people different ways

one way is by grounding them... so they cant go out, take away any privaliges they have like phone, computer, tv or whatever..

i guess it also deprends on what age the child is.. different tactics would be used for different ages.

I don't think hitting a child is a solution at all.. Idk much about childcare though.. But I guess being firm at what you allow, not going back on what you previously said is a good idea.. To give rules.. And I think we often don't talk with the children enough. Explain things to them. Why things are wrong to do. Children can usually understand much more than we give them credit for.

I remember my parents sat me down in the hallway to think about things for a while, calm down. And when I wasn't angry anymore, I could open the door again. They never locked the door, so it was my choice to come back in when I felt like it. Then they talked about what had happened to me. To be in the hallway was punishment enough for me, since the hallway was a boring place to be, and lonely too.. Idk.. I think talking to the child is the most important thing.. Explaining when the child has calmed down again..

Personally I don't think parents should resort to violance. Hitting a child could teach them that reacting to an unplesant situation with physical violance is ok. But then that dose leave one to ask how their supposed to discipline their child. Revoking privlages is one way to go but then again I'm not a parent so I have yet to understand how difficult it can be.

hitting a child isn't a very good thing at all...

I read something somewhere about noticing when a child is behaving well and rewarding the child for that good behavior isn't a bad idea...
