Re: Did I overreact?

I agree it is hard sometimes to follow through on the consequences, because you want your children to be happy (and go to story time), but once you have made the consequences clear, you HAVE to follow through or else your kids know they might be able to get away w/ stuff. Did you talk to her when she was calm to find out why she was behaving so differently? And try to get her to understand that you didn't want to punish her, but she did not behave appropriately, so that was why you missed Story Time? 2 y.o.'s are hard sometimes!!!
