Re: Punishments Outside of the Home

Yeah, maybe my kid is just unique, but there is no WAY that having him sit there - in the middle of the play area - would have amounted to anything other than a disaster. I believe he has some sensory issues too, but I know that trying to contain him in that sort of environment would have greatly escalated to a screaming, throwing-himself-on-the-floor-and-trying-to-hit-things tantrum of epic proportions.

I should have asked my friend to watch my DD so I could remove DS to somewhere more quiet. I'm not sure why that didn't occur to me. Thank you everyone for your help! This attitude didn't emerge until recently and it gets 1000x worse around mealtimes so after examining the situation I think I'm going to be more careful about when we make plans, too.......
