My dad occasionally handed out smacks, but it was mostly my mum who did the smacking. But my dad always backed up my mum; we knew it was no good going to him to complain about Mum. XD
Time out wouldn't have worked on me at all; I'd just go into a world of my own and it wouldn't be a punishment at all. Grounding wouldn't have worked; I'd have just climbed out the window. XD My room was above the garage, and I could just drop out the window on to the flat garage roof and drop from there on to the dustbin.
When I was a teen, the punishments were usually stuff like extra chores, losing TV privileges or stuff like that.
