Does the punishment fit the crime??

Well Dallin has reached the age where time outs don't work. Its pretty lame and they don't give a crap about sitting in a corner for 8-9 min so... Gotta do something else. Writting sentences! Yes! They hate hate hate it. Which means magic. And its good for hand writting and reading better. I am tooo damn clever for my own good. Andrew thinks its funny. But its not like he is here all day and gets where I am coming from. This day they all did bad stuff within minutes of each other so it was a family gathering. Derek was not bad but he didn't know what to do with himself with out play mates so he joined thme and scribbled all over his paper.

You know, I've heard of other parents doing this as well, and they also say it's effective. Maybe I will have to give it a try. My friend makes her teen son write an essay on what he did wrong and what he should have done differently..etc. She says that works too.
