According to a post on LiveScience, one-third of parents say that
disciplining their kids isn’t working out. Two thousand parents of kids
ages 2-11 were surveyed by researched who were interested in finding
out more about four common types of disciplinary techniques:
“time-outs,” removal of priviledges, yelling, and spanking.
parents, almost 45%, said that they had used “time-outs,” and 42%
tried removing privileges. Only 13% said they yelled (…which is

About 31% claimed their methods were not effective, and 38% said they used the same techniques their parents used on them.
