Do you have a child between the ages of 9 and 11? I'd love to get some input for an article I'm working on about disciplining kids in this age group.
What "little kid" discipline techniques don't work anymore?
What behaviour issues begin to crop up at this age?
What strategies work well now?
Do you go with reward or punishment or a combination of both?
What motivates your child (e.g. having technology taken away, grounding, promises to have a special outing/purchase something, etc.)
If you have a response in mind for even one of these questions, I'd be thrilled for you to share it (you don't have to reply to everything, and I don't use real names without permission!) I love getting feedback from people I know, but it's also really important to get a range of viewpoints from moms and dads all over the country, so please don't think that your input doesn't matter - it does!
You can leave a comment below or e-mail me directly at katewinn77 at yahoo dot ca.
Thanks in advance for helping me with my holiday homework!
