Re: Mommy Mistake - How To Fix? Took Away 5yo's Birthday Party
My son is still too young for this, so I haven't been in this situation, so feel free to disregard my advice. I think though, that kids need to also learn that Mom and Dad are human. I think that you should sit her down (when she is in a good mood) and tell her that you made a mistake. That you do not think her behavior was acceptable, but that taking away her birthday party wasn't the appropriate response either. Ask her what she thinks an appropriate consequence for the tantrum should be and then agree to "swap" consequences.
