I keep reading alot of mixed reviews about it. Seems like it's a love it or hate it program. Level 3 is what we need to get it if I go for it.

I told him to come back to finish the lesson and he didn't like that idea. So being the 4 year old that he is, he decided to throw his plastic stool to show his frustration. Well this time God smiled on me and the stool bounced back at him and hit him square in the nose! So with a bloody nose and all he came to me screaming. He is fine and the nose isn't broken but I think he learned that he shouldn't throw things inside the house. We have had a big problem with this in the past and I think with this one tantrum we might have solved it!
Sometimes natural consequences is better than anything we could come up with ourselves!

I'm stalling bad this morning! It's almost 11:00am and we haven't even started. It's COLD and icy here in Louisiana so we've been huddling by the fireplace and chatting. It's been nice. But now it's time to crack the whip.
