Hello and thanks for using!

I'd highly recommend you look at the strategies employed by the Love and Logic theory of parenting / teaching. They offer some great techniques for discipline that rely heavily on logical consequences. The website is and they have a number of books specific to developmental levels (worth checking your local library to see if they have any available). This is a theory I recommend to many families I work with and use frequently as a parent myself. I wish you the best of luck!
