What is your best way of correcting a child from 3 to 10 who has done wrong
I think it varies much from age 3 to 10. A 3 year old may stop by a stern look or simply redirecting her from wrong to right. A 10 year old may need a privilege removed ...such as internet or video game time...to make a point.
It depends on what gets their attention when I am correcting them.
I think the key word in your question is correcting. Coercion and punishment might work in some cases, but it strains your relationship and deteriorates trust. The best thing to do is take the child aside and get him/her to explain their actions. Ask them if they think what they did was wrong. Explain to them why what they did was wrong, and what negative consequences come from that sort of behavior. Make sure you do this as calmly as possible. Staying calm puts you in control of the situation far more than blowing your top does. Be the rational adult. Also suggest a better way the child could handle the situation in the future.
Of course, if the kid runs into the street and almost gets hit by a car, an emotional reaction will probably be unavoidable and also helpful. In that case your emotions will indicate to the child how serious the situation is.
I don't scold them in public. I will pull them away in a quiet place and explain what went wrong and make sure we understand each other on that. If it is an emergency I will simply call my kid loudly and stop her from doing whatever it is that is wrong.
