comment What to do when an eight-year old says “sorry” in a not sorry voice
Depends. If we feel "i don't know" is an easy way out, he gets a timeout (age in minutes on the naughty-step), if he honestly doesn't know, we take the time to help him understand. The latter process is quite slow, and stops him from playing, so he prefers to get it right the first time.

comment Alternative to the 1-2-3 rule needed
My parents used a countdown (frequently), and usually physical punishments were counted as well. I grew up to be a computer programmer; I have always loved math. I don't think using numbers in corrective scenarios will affect the love for numbers.

comment Is bribing children with cash incentives a good idea?
@DA01, there might be a confusion of definitions, though this might also have cultural aspect to it. Giving someone money for doing what is the norm is bribery (e.g. paying for not getting beaten up, or giving money to be treated fairly), whereas giving money for doing what is more than the norm is called trade (e.g. asking someone to wash your car in exchange for some cash). I can't remember ever having bribed someone, or being offered a bribe. I, like everyone else, have however traded quite a bit.

comment How can you deal with tantrums without spanking?
Restricted choice works well for us. You can even limit the choices to have (nearly) identical results: "Do you want your milk in a yellow or a blue cup"? Usually this is enough to keep our son happy.
