"It's too hard to be good"

That's my DS's excuse today for why he took Big Bird away from DD1 That one is topping all of his excuses now

My response to him?
"well it's not too hard to take away your fishing trip tomorrow" Be darned it's working.

Re: "It's too hard to be good"

LOL! My DD just says "I don't want to!" at the top of her lungs...or "I want to" whenever it's something that she did cuz she wanted to. It's a lovely thing to hear constantly. LOL! I use threats too sometimes, and they work. It's the only thing that gets her outta stuff and etc......so it's usually "No disney if you don't stop," "You will go to bed if you don't stop," and so on and so forth.

Good to hear that someone else threatens when necessary.

Re: "It's too hard to be good"

My kids are too young to understand/fear threats. LOL. Katerina is only 20 months so there is a lot of "MINE!" She could be playing in a palace filled with diamond encrusted seizure-inducingly-flashing singing toys and if Jed were trotting along w/a walker she would run to take it from him. Fortunately she responds pretty well to firm repetitions of "Please give it back"... if she doesn't do it by the third repetition I just take it. sigh.
