Good ideas & explanations, I think it important to add that you must think before threatening or drawing lines in the sand. Follow through is important, so speak after thinking, know why you're doing it and then DO whatever you've claimed to do. Otherwise kids will not trust your boundaries.
Love this idea! Consequences That Actually Work! "Forced apologies don’t teach true remorse and reconciliation... Parents can set kids up for sincere reconciliation. ...Restitution consequences encourage personal responsibility and usually end with one child feeling cared for and the other feeling caring."
