When you tell your child not to do something and they still do it, what is appropriate punishment?

At (15) years old (16 in August), this is the first time my child has openly defied me. I am at a loss and don't know how to approach this.

The most basic punishments for teens are often grounding by restricting them from going out with their friends for some time or withholding their privileges like using the internet, cellphone and decreasing their allowances. You should also be considerate with giving punishments though, making it appropriate according to the level of their misbehaving. If your teen is showing signs of extreme defiant behavior and the like, then I guess any punishment will only be useless since it would only trigger more negative behavior from his part. You might want to consider providing him with professional help though or consider this thought. They might help you with understanding your son's behavior. I hope that helps. Smile

In my experience, the majority of parents who resort to smacking their child do so when they feel they are losing control of a situa­tion and their temper snaps.

Did you talk to them calmly? Ask them why? We raise our kids in a non-violent way. So no hitting. Total respect. If you want them to talk to you, you talk to them. Listen to them, no matter what.

I just joined this forum thanks to your post! I have three boys of my own, and understood what you mean about our perceptions of having kids. I know my perception is currently wrong.... very wrong!
