Try This: How Do You Punish a Teenager?
Your rebellious teenager is acting up and you know that banning dessert or giving timeouts won't work anymore.
So, now what?
When it comes to disciplining teens, taking away electronics, like cell phones and iPods, seems to be a growing trend.
But, is banning Facebook really an effective punishment method as well? Healthguidance.com recommends implementing related punishments so that the punishment does, in fact, fit the crime.
Also, punishments should be practical so that your teen knows you are serious. Threatening to never let her out of the house again just isn't going to fly, and your teenage daughter knows it. Choose a punishment that you can follow through on and your budding adult will be more likely to follow your rules.
