Very.

for me they were, but not for my sister and brother
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 9:22:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
an ass whoopin?
Yup.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/6/04 - 6:44:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really... they were not consistent in anything they did... rather than enforcing a sense of discipline, it gave way to serious rebelliousness...
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/7/04 - 6:07:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
yup. guilt tactics always work. lol, js jk, they talked to me about what i did, and made me think about it, really think, and 10 to one i never did it again.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 11/7/04 - 7:36:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
not at all
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/9/04 - 3:51:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
They were effective for me, not so much for my sister and brothers. I suspect I wore them out.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/9/04 - 3:55:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, very. They pointed out to me why something was wrong and very very rarely had to use physical punishment (or any punishment at all for that matter).
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/9/04 - 4:24:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, they didn't even have methods of discipline other than screaming
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/13/04 - 4:15:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, there was almost always the ass kickin' if I did something really bad or I wasn't sorry for doing something bad. I think I was hit more than my brothers because I was the only girl and more was expected of me and boys will be boys, blah, blah, not a good way to teach kids about equality!

when I get disciplined it pisses me off. So then I just try and not get caught next time. ^_^
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 12/15/04 - 8:11:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Some were and some weren't, just like with most parents I imagine. My father was always very direct about why he didn't want me to do something, even from a young age. That was usually all it took. Other than that the most effective one was removal of privileges.

I don't think any discipline is effective if you define it as a system that ends misbehavior. Everyone screws up his or her entire life, so I hardly think we can judge parental discipline by such an impossible standard as that.

Yeah, mine were effective disciplinarians. Their methods included, but were not limited to spanking. My wife and I have decided not to spank, but we are confident that we are and will continue to be effective disciplinarians.

They weren't until I grew up.

My stepdad would yell and occasionally hit, which actually was pretty effective. But my mom would go to her room and cry whenever we did something to upset her...which didn't make the situation better at all. But it did give me a guilt trip for making her cry.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/24/04 - 12:39:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. Hand it to those parents; for layin' the smack.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 10:45:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
With me they weren't at all. And It wasn't for lack of trying, they tried everything in the book. I was just a BAD kid.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 10:51:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
My sister was always worse than me, she got the wooden spoon across her ass. I wasn't naughty because I knew what would happen.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 10:54:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Effective in making me hide my entire life from them.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 10:55:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. It got to the point where my parents were actually wondering why I didn't go out and cause more trouble. . or even leave the apartment most of the time.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 1/28/05 - 11:12:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I was just a naturally good kid.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 1/31/05 - 6:23:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really. I kinda just do my own thing
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 2/14/05 - 6:54:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. Haha.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 3/10/05 - 7:08:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
until i was old enough to really be aware of what i was doing and had done they were
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/3/05 - 1:14:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
my parents barely had to discipline me because they barely ever found out about anything. but my answer is no because i used to sneak out when i was grounded
