Re: Blech. I need some advice regarding appropriate consequences
Oh, yeah, like OP's dd1, my ds1 too is sooo over the "taking things away." He barely bats an eyelid. I've put one of his fav cars in the attic for 3mos now. He does rem'ber it...doesnt care enough. (We dont even have many toys)
With DS1, the one thing that does work is saying that if he continues to annoy-anyone of us- he wont get to go out in the evening/wont get to go to his drawing classes, etc.
He loves getting out of the house.
DS2 however, is a diff animal. Taking things away will only make him wail louder. He will stay stubborn and not say sorry to older brother.
All those crunchy things and more Amma to DS1(9.2007)
