I have a question about disciplining my girlfriend's children. I am not talking about spanking, I'm talking about time out loss of privileges and scolding and sometimes having to pick the kids up off the floor and take them to their rooms when they will not move for their mom

What is your question? The answer to it is probably going to be the same - let the parents discipline their children.
I am not sure what your question is. I assume you are asking if you have the right to discipline the children. That depends on the parents and whether or not they approve, which includes the father. I would advise against disciplining your girlfriend's children as it often leads to issues between you and the children's father, or can create issues between the parents. Certainly never do corporal punishment.
