Re: Blech. I need some advice regarding appropriate consequences
When my boys were doing this all the time I used a cotton rope and tied it around them at the waist. They had to stay like that to learn to work together and not fight over every little thing (they were fighting over cleaning their room). They stayed that way until their room was clean and only were allowed to take it off to use the restroom. They actually ended up making a game out of it and having fun trying to do things while tied at the waist. It did help though.
