Re: Punishments Outside of the Home
If it is small misbehavior, I might overlook it, but speaking that disrespectfully and trying to hit me would have pushed me over the edge. I would have left the play area, even if it meant leaving with my other child. I would have tried to find another option to spend time with my friend (possibly inviting said friend back to my house while I dealt with my child) but in my experience, I can't concentrate on having fun with friends when my children are acting out, so if I had to, I would have said goodbye.
