Naughty Step?

Have you ever had a naughty step?

Did it work?

Have you ever gone off on holiday and forgotten to release your offspring from the step?

Re: Naughty Step?

Used to send my kids to their rooms, but it, to them, wasn't a punishment, they had toys there.
Should have thought that out better.

Hi

Same here.

My daughter was a very determined young lady from a very early age,

Sent her to bed one sunny afternoon and went to see her about 40 minutes later.

She had not long started school.

She was in bed, nightie on, no toys, just sat up.

Thank you Dad, I am really enjoying this.

That is when you know you are beat.

Re: Naughty Step?

No,No Never. ‘Naughty Steps’ are cruel.
The same with parents who lock their children in cloakrooms or years ago, in coal sheds.
Is it any wonder that some children grow up with hang-ups and have mental issues.

Re: Naughty Step?

We were made to stand on cold, cold lino with bare feet facing a wall. Length of time was variable depending on the perceived crime. My ma and pa could teach the inquisition a thing or two.

Re: Naughty Step?

I think children have to have manners put on them and if it means little punishments like the norty step for a short period , Cannot see what harm it does .

After all they used to get a clip across the ear or a smack on the back of the legs .
Now thanks to the tree huggers & bed wetters ,a lot them run riot IMO

Apricot, l think, if you teach them from an early age to be well mannered and know the meaning of the word, ‘No’ then there should be no need for cruel steps.

Re: Naughty Step?

I don"t think they are cruel steps by any means ,if children are not shown the proper way to go on by their parents ,who else will ?
After all the teachers have enough on their plate as it is . I have heard stories were the children haven"t been potty trained by the idle mums , bythe time they get to school ,it seems incredible but I can imagine in some areas it might be possible ,who knows ?
