They can take the form of: Isolation (“If you tease your sister again, you will stay in your room for the rest of the day.”) Embarrassment and humiliation (“If you lie, I will tape a long cardboard nose on your face and you will look like Pinocchio.”) Shaming (“Shame on you for wetting your pants.”) Emotional isolation (“Don’t come to me for a hug—you were a bad boy to bite your brother.”) Grounding (“You talk like that to your mother one more time and you will be grounded for a week.”)
