With 5 kids I quickly learned that sometimes the punishments we give are more a punishment to the parent or the family than to the child causing the problem. The solution to this is only give punishments that YOU want. Would you enjoy Christmas if Santa didn´t come? No, so don´t use it as a punishment. Instead, make them write letters to their grandma before they can go to bed. Or make them clean a toilet if you have to ask more than once for a job to be done. At least then, you are getting something you want out of the ordeal.
