After husband and I recently came to the end of our rope with the kids and foul language, we decided to give them exercises to do as punishment for their transgressions. This morning, difficult child 1 & 2 earned 20 push-ups each for their choice of words. Then difficult child 2 shoved his sister and started to call her a sh!t, so he earned MORE. Time outs just weren't cutting it. And losing privileges only goes as far as they have privileges. I'm not sure if it's working yet, but at least they'll be in better shape! And I can implement this ANYWHERE.
