Sorry, nothing in cart.
Am I the only person who thought those are just punishments veiled in lots of words? The rowdy kid had to get off the slide and the foul-mouthed kid had to In A World Full Of Grandmas & Sunflower Be A Gigi T-Shirt give up the cell phone just the same. I feel like it’s a lot more empathic and honest to just frame it as a punishment since it’s going to feel like a punishment for the kids no matter what you say.
Children are not stupid and if you give them a lecture which In A World Full Of Grandmas & Sunflower Be A Gigi T-Shirt a discussion is for a child and then take away something from them- it is a punishment because you are withholding something they want to do. I think lying to your child is what builds animosity and distrust and 9 times out of 10 it is the reason parents struggle with teens.
