How many times should you ask a school aged child to do something before disciplining?


I've heard over and over again, "If I have to tell you one more time, you are in trouble!" However, I've heard parents say they should only have to ask once. I'm somewhere in the middle. What do you think?

    You don't ask, you tell a school aged child what to do.
