I'm not a parent, so I'm the last one to make these decisions, but this article has me riled.

The PC brigade are up in arms that 'time out' in a kids bedroom is too harsh.

Frankly, I think timeout in your bedroom is a luxury, not a punishment.

Many brats these days have a bedroom strewn with toys, distractions, a TV, a computer or game console - what sort of punishment is that?

I say chuck the brooms out of the broom closet, put a stool and an encyclopedia in there, and leave them in there until they learn the value of behaving themselves.

Yeah, punish me please. Lock me in my room with all my games... you #4$%@# useless %^&* parents.

My dad always said kids should be lock up until they are 18 years old.

Then mine says; when they turn 18 they have to move out :lol:

How is locking them in their bedroom going to teach them (the kids) anything.

Exactly:

"Go to your room" "Okay" *plays games on Xbox 360* :D

But we need activists to give a bit of a stir do we not?

Noticed her on Q + A this morning regarding Pete Bethune and she sounded sensible for a change.

I missed Q & A this morning. It can be very interesting.
I hope the change becomes more permanent.:)

We don't need more people in Parliament but we need less apathy among the voters.

I might also point out that that we can't vote for people employed in the public service.

How many times has treasury got figures wrong? Like computers if you put garbage in then I think you will get garbage out.

Oh no we need more peeps in parliament...just because.
We cant vote for the employed. Just because.
Treasury never gets it wrong, look at our thriving trade!

He wasn't talking about imprisonment, Sue Bradford should never be asked her opinion on anything, ever, and the other "expert" they consulted took it immediately out of context.

This is nothing but the media trying to make something of nothing and should be treated as such.

Look at the interview with the centre point leader as another worthless attempt from the media seeking attention.

Why bother to print it?

Seriously, if thats the best they can do they should hand there roles over to someone who isn't a complete twat and go seek work in PakiSave.

Just tell the kids if they don't behave you will throw one of his favorite toys out and that particular toy will never be returned in this household.

YES. .......and her favourite toy has ended up in the rubbish bin.

Very effective. Got her attention very quick.

Now, the mere threat of another of her toys going in the rubbish gets instant attention.

I would never get parent of the month, I lock the kids in their room and pull the fuse for the power points so they cant play computer.
Only open it when they calm down or if there is a fire.
One of them has taken to jumping out the window but on to that now lock them outside.
Never back down with kids they just take it as a weakness and come right back at you.

Yes~

Once they realize that their favorite toy will be gone, they know you're serious...
