Dress Code Discipline

I am a 15 year old boy who gets average grades, gets into trouble every now and then, and can be a little bratty at times. Since my parents have mentioned doing something like this a couple times, pretend you're them and let me know how you would improve my discipline.

older than 50
Male or Female
Do you currently have kids?
If you have kids, do you consider yourself a strict parent?
If you don't have kids, do you think you would be a strict parent if you did?
Do you think being more strict with what you let your kids wears would improve their discipline?
A Little
I would always let my kids wear whatever they want

Would you force me to get rid of any clothes that don't comply with my new dress code?
Yes, anything that isn't under the dress code
Yes, except for certain items I would wear for sports, yardwork, etc
No, you can keep your other clothes but they would be packed away so you couldn't wear them without permission
No, you can keep them in your room
How would you begin the dress code?
Surprise me when I am getting dressed - when I open my closet, only dress code items are there
Tell me that I am now under a dress code and take me shopping for new clothes
Tell me to strip down to my underwear and dress me in my new dress code so that I understand what I am to wear and how it is to be worn
Hand me my new clothes that you had picked out for me and explain to me the new rules

In bed by 8

Would you enforce this on the weekends as well?

I would enforce a bedtime around 11 or later
No set bedtime on weekends
What about getting up on the weekends? I get up at 6 on the weekdays for school.
Wake up the same time

No set time to wake up
