Exactly. It'd be like making a kid carry around a belt. Im sure it does work...but children shouldnt live in fear.

I've heard of it for self discipline and for a subsitute for cutting. But never to discipline a child, and that is more on a punishment side in my opinion, and disgusting.

I have never heard of this for discipline, poor kids who do deal with it. i don't let my kids play with rubber bands of any kind jic they forget about it due to cutting off circulation.

I've heard of adults doing this on their wrists to break a bad habit, but I can't remember how it's supposed to be.... maybe for smoking or some obsessive behavior???

I've never heard of it nor could I see myself using that technique.

Re: Rubberband for discipline?

I used it to break the habit of biting my nails and then my six year old wanted to try it, I let her and she snapped herself one time and cried like she was dying. The poor thing she still bites her nails but I told her we will find another way for her to break her habit.
