Let others discipline your kid?
Personally, I say yes. Avery is going to interact with way more people then just my husband and I and she needs to follow their rules too. I don't want her acting like a turd at a friends house just because I'm not there. Plus if she does something wrong I want her to experience immediate consequences. I don't want the other person to wait until I get back to let me know because it will be too late for her to learn properly.
With that said, I think there are certain kinds of punishments that are acceptable for others to give to my kids. Time outs, taking toys away, giving chores, etc. are all okay in my book. I wouldn't want someone else to ever use physical punishments on my child. I also wouldn't want them to yell/scream at her either. I feel like most of the 'traditional' forms of discipline are fine, but save the really outside the box stuff for your own kid.
What do you think?
But altogether yes I agree that immediate punishment is required in order for kids to learn a lesson.
