I don't think it's possible. =)
However, finding out what discipline actions work for your children helps in preventing them from repeating behaviors.
My son is seven and does well in school for the most part. Every now and then he comes home with a "yellow" card which means the teacher had to correct him more than once during that day. He is "grounded" that evening from TV or Video games etc.
Now, We aren't opposed to spanking IF it is neccessary but we also know it doesn't work for our youngest anyway! Given the option, he'll choose a spanking over being grounded.
Here's the catch.. He hates being grounded so much that I have allowed him to "work off his grounding" with chores. The funny part is, he spends all evening folding clothes and doing chores to NOT be grounded when he could have spent his grounding in his room where ALL his toys are!!
At ages 7 and 9 my kids know there are consequences for misbehaviors. We've explained that punishment is something that we have to do in order to help them learn not to repeat those things. Just like they do in school when they misbehave. Such as missing a recess or not attending a field trip.
My kids aren't perfect angels but they are pretty darn good if you ask me. =)
