What's the harshest punishment you've doled out?


what's yours?
I’ve taken her kicking and screaming…

Thankfully my kids don’t push me to be too harsh, but every once in awhile I have a child who puts up a real fight about going to school. I’ve taken her kicking and screaming before and it never sat well with me. Now if she insists she’s too “sick” to go to school I allow her to stay home, but she spends the day in bed — being sick. I also take away any other fun plans she was going to have so she ends up missing out on a lot of fun stuff in exchange for that “sick” day. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it feels terrible holding her back from so many things due to a poor decision on her part.
