    I am at least as strict with my child as I am with my dog. I reckon I actually used dog training methods on her when she was really little.

    ive trained my OH in exactly the same way. He's the cuddly type. If he strokes me, i'll lay there snuggled, if he stops, i get up and move. Keep it simple.
    Extra thoughtful gifts, where clearly, time has been taken, thought has been used. I put out for. Keep it simple - jackpot theory.

    I love the idea of clicker training my niece actually. Presenting problem - shyness. Im over it in 10 mins. Had she been a dog, id of been right in there, training it with rewards etc. But a niece? who can be bothered if the parents cant?

    lol Bernie!

    I have seen articles about clicker training kids! But I thought that was going a step too far for me...

    I can't stand parents letting their kids use shyness as an excuse to be rude. I had quite a few arguments about that one with my daughter when she was younger. No real positive reward training there actually. A "nice manners" at most. I find those kind of things are self-rewarding.

    I worked in retail for quite a few years before my current job, I couldn't stand how kids never said please or thankyou and how their parents never made them! I will always remember one regular customer, who used to go totally off at her kids for not saying please or thankyou but NEVER said please and thankyou herself, how can she expect her kids to have good manners when she never set an example!

    I use to work as a Learn to swim teacher here and in NZ. Back at home i loved it - if the kids didn't behave parents weren't afraid to give them a good clip around the ears for wasting their money. Here in Brisbane it's alot different. Parents tend to wrap their kids up in cotton wool 'Oh my child doesn't like to put it's head under the water' crap. I use to say 'well how do you expect them to learn how to swim then?'.

    My classes were very disciplined, you don't like it, you can leave. I've had children spit at me, kick me, bite me, punch me - you name it! and no wonder they behaved the way that they did - they would get out of the pool and treat their mother the same! I had parents coming to me for parental advice and i didn't even have kids! because they listened to me! It was just terrible, i was forever exhausted working with these problem children. One day i just said to my boss i can't handle this shit anymore and handed in my notice

    I worked as a relief teacher in a primary school before I started uni.
    There was this kid who was such a trouble maker. He would not listen, was rude etc..
    Anyway one day during class I noticed the kid was turning blue, he was choking. I ran to him to find out he tied his coat too tight and could not undo the tie.
    I grabbed a pair of scissors and cut the knot.
    The next day his mum came to school demanding I buy her son a new coat.
    Kids are the reflection of their parents.
    Oh and I resigned the same day.

    Back on topic (kind of), this was the configuration in my bed: My 7yo on one side, our big foster cat snuggled up against her, then Banjo stretched out next to him, one of our kittens snuggled against her belly and half buried under her paws, then me with the other kitten lying on my knees. Very snug!
