I'm pretty easy. You argue with each other over a game, lose the computer for the day. Snark at each other over dinner, lose dessert for a few days. Argue over a toy, oops, toy's gone for the day too.
Kids are so spoiled now a days you take away anything and it's forgotten within a few minutes...-sigh-
Kids spoiled? Are you kidding? Except for the cable, toys, xbox360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP, HDTV, bikes, park, skate-park, swimming pool, bowling alley, football fields, tennis courts, mini golf, fishing equipment, cookies, dvds, cinema, stores, baseball, basketball, theatre, school-clubs and chuck E cheese they have aboslutely nothing for kids to do these days.
That's pretty terrible that you had to get treated that way with the slaps in the face, that's not a form of punishment so much as it is a form of dominance but it's good that you at least refuse to do that in the future rather than following suit.
