This can be done through denial of privileges. This includes denial of holiday vacation or a gift. However, you should first find what caused the misconduct because some of them are provoked by other circumstances. You should make sure that you are a good example before punishing the child.

Talk to them, reason out the problem and restrict their activities. Like limit TV time, or grounded for the weekend.

Discipline vs Punishment? Change your mindset and you will be better able to change theirs.

A good butt whooping that's how I was taught . All I needed was one good one with a nice little slap on the mouth and that was the last time I ever misbehaved . I also once got my mouth washed out with soap. That's probably why I don't cuss very much. I think there is a difference between being abusive and showing the kid who is boss my parents used to and trust me I know who the bosses are . I also treat people with respect (:

Set reasonable deprivations. But that really depends on the age. At ages like after 6. So, they will learn to admit the consequence of their deeds.

Talk to them. Find out why they're doing what they are. Let them know your rules and boundaries. But listen to them and respect their opinions. Respect goes both ways.
