My husband & I have different opinions. How many days and how many devices do you take away from a 7 year old for back talking a parent. ?
Adopted at age 4.

Devices... YOU TOO STUPID to understand a answer IF YOUR 7 year old has DEVICES...

Why does a seven year old have "devices", anyway? Whatever happened to a child playing outside in the fresh air and using his imagination? Just because you adopted him at age four doesn't mean you need to shower him with toys and electronics so he will feel "appreciated". Do things with him such as taking him to the park on a picnic, teaching him how to swim, getting him involved in Cub Scouts, having him interact with grandparents, etc. He needs to learn to be around positive people, not hiding behind electronic devices.Source(s): licensed specialist in school psychology

Surely, you can come to a compromise.
Start with the minimum, build up if necessary.
But, there may be other ways: try sitting down and talking to your child

Take the things away that he is most currently interested the most in. That should tell him that to get back to where he was, he needs to correct his behavior.

Most couples have differences of opinion. It's normal. And if your 7 year old needs to learn some sort of a lesson because of his behavior, then you and your husband need to discuss a punishment and come to some sort of agreement about it.
If your kid relies on "devices" as a life sustaining practice, then that's MESSED UP

2 days, 1 favorite device.......leaves room to increase both days/devices for repeat offenses.
