    First of all be patient. Second don't spank them too much and the most important of all, communicate with them. Explain to them why is it good or why is it bad; why you don't have to do this and why you have to do that.

    look them straight in the eyes and tell them what they've done wrong.  Make it known to them what is proper and what is not.

    The worst thing to do is punish a child when angry and agitated.  I believe there is such golden middle when you punish with love, explaining them what they've done wrong. After that is done, it is an absolute must to show them love with hugs and kisses.

    For me, time-outs work the best -my kids do not like to be isolated.  It's like jail time for them.

    Understand the root of his action before jumping into conclusion that he has done something wrong.  Sometimes, they did something out of curiousity or creativity, or with the intention of capturing your attention, but not with bad intention to hurt, destroy or being bad.

    Victress In All  I agree with her. I have never had to spank my kids. They are not well adjusted in their 20s. My family me to spank my kids. I refused all I have to do is raise my voice and they will still cry. The social workers will tell you if you were beat as a kid you will beat your kids. Screw them

    Assuming you mean young children, I am not sure there is a BEST way to discipline children as each child is different and have different temperaments. While I do not discourage physical discipline, I think it should be a last resort. The goal of discipline is not to punish but to teach. Perhaps, beginning with denial of privileges and so forth.

    As others have pointed out it is never advisable to physically discipline a child when angry because then you become a kind of "bully" to your own child.

    Also, be satisfied that the child understands why whatever teaching mechanism you use, is being used.

    Hope this helps in some way. I have great admiration for all parents of young children as your job is the toughest in the world.
