Every family and child is different, and so there’s no one “right” way to help kids learn responsibility and modify their behaviour for the better. What method(s) do you use?

Your discipline style or technique might depend on a number of factors, including your child’s age, the kind of behaviour you want to teach or minimize, and your child’s temperament. (To raise happy children, your parenting approach should match their personalities.)
Keep in mind also, that discipline isn’t always about punishment, but rather about raising kids to become self-controlled and respectful. WebMD has an excellent article about different discipline tactics, including rewarding good behaviour and taking away privileges. But we’d like to ask you: What methods do you find effective for your family?
