My Mood:
Re: Blech. I need some advice regarding appropriate consequences

I love the idea of making them work together on a project.
I also like "bonding" them together, but I would personally use that on occasions where the consequence needs to fit worse actions than these.

At what age does the "work together" principle began working? I don't think that my almost 3 and almost 6 year old could grasp this concept at all yet, but I have been waiting to introduce it with eagerness *giggle*
My children are also the type that just don't give a hoot if you take something away. Even with canceling activities. I think activities are not material enough for them to understand and their material possessions are too many or undervalued for them to care
