I'm watching an 8, 9, and 11 year old for their summer break and there's been a lot of name calling with them here. Stuff like "idiot," "jerk," etc.
How do you all deal with your older children when they call each other names?
When it happened on Friday, I put the kid in time out for the number of minutes equal to their age and having them write "I will not call people _____ " until the timer beeped. Any other suggestions?
