Re: Punishments Outside of the Home
I have btdt and I feel the same as PP have stated. A time out then and there. If you needed to be watching your other child, then he should have sat there next to you. At first I would have ignored the escelated behavior when you placed him on time out, then I would have explained that he was being rude to everyone by being so noisy and screaming. If that was not working, removing him from the situation while asking your friend to keep an eye od your dd. And honestly, as a last resort, I would have to leave. Yeah, it would suck for your dd, and for you since it is your friend, but there is a lesson your son needed to learn and waiting several hours to punish him for his bad behavior is not doing him, or you, any favors.
