Is restraining misbehaving kids with tape for a period of time a good punishment?
It is definitely better than spanking, or hitting their body with something. Right?

Punishment has been proven to NOT be effective.
Even just restraining them with tape is not effective.
You had better sit down with a family therapist and learn how to apply behavior modification. The problem is how you are handling the kids, not the kids themselves.

No. Punishment is not what children or any person needs. Children need to be at the right age and stage and ability to understand appropriately, maturely communicated instruction and advice.... Janet has the best idea, and the others have said good things too.

I found that a spanking (leaving NO red marks) works much better.
If they are mouthing off a slap across the mouth works go to (again leave NO red marks)

Read the parenting books! Especially perhaps “How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will Talk” by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish

how about TALKING to them and explaining why is that considered wrong what they did. u can not punish a bunny for eating veggies in your garden - this is what bunnies do. they don't know that u consider it wrong. the same with children - they just do things which come onto their mind. talking with them worked for me - never spanked any of mine

No if you want to restrain your children then I'd suggest banishing them to their bedrooms for a few mins, not restraining them with tape.

No. What you're proposing is child abuse.

Bondage instead of physical abuse? Hmmm.
