I was a proponent of the Babywise thang until wee Maxx cried and we tried to leave him. TO HELL WITH BABYWISE. And if you put the fear of abandonment into a baby at 8 weeks, or 5 years, they will grow up to be like TRUMP. Threatening abandonment or failing to CARE has consequences also, dear parent. Above all Love, Plz.

What works exactly for every child is of course different but for gods sake....child abuse is wrong in every instance, IMHO.

Sorry but what on Earth are you talking about?

Different language.

However, if the op means what I think she does, I agree. Threatening to leave children (or put them out of the car) if they are no co-operating is extremely unkind. Even though I'm sure the children know it's an empty threat.

TexasParent, this is a UK site. Hardly anyone in the UK has heard of the poison that is BabyWise. Fortunately.
