What does surprise me is that while the kids grow up (oh-so-fast), their punishments seem to be staying the same.
The classic "removal of toys" is popular. If their grades aren't what they should be, the boys will lose either their phones, video games, TV privileges or a combination of all three.
Jolie was trained early on that if she wanted to throw a fit, it was fine but I wasn't going to be subjected to watching it. So she was sent to her room even at 2 to have a meltdown. And now? When she's mad about the unfairness of her life, she stomps off to room, slams the door & wails. But at least it isn't in the kitchen floor while I'm making dinner.
The most popular method in my house is simply the "time-out". It's my serve-all punishment. Smart mouth? Sit in the corner. Fighting with your brother/sister? Sit at the table for 10 minutes.
Chances are, if you're at my house and one of the kids are misbehaving? THIS is what you will see.
