If disrespect is against the rules it must be punished immediately, each and every time it's displayed. Eye-rolling, mumbling, talking back all come from the same place that foot stomping and yelling do. Correct the easy, minor stuff and you can avoid most of the big stuff. If you tolerate some disrespect, the kid believes that disrespect is ok and they aren't being punished because they decided to break a house rule but because you got mad.
The mannner of punishment isn't as imporant as the certainty and consistency of it.
