I'm a busy mom who works hard for her kids! Hope you can relate to some of my thoughts!

What consequences can you really give an almost 5 year old? He loves watching Noggin, so that's always the first thing to go, next is going to bed early (which he hates), or we'll say no dessert after dinner. What else is there? We went to dinner with my Brother In Law, his wife and his kids at Sweet Tomatoes tonight, Aiden was awful! He was messing around so much he fell and smacked his face on the bottom of the high chair! I was so embarrassed! He went straight to bed when we went home which led to a huge screaming fit. We've gone through this before, he won't remember it next time. He NEVER listens to us! We tell him things over and over again and he never listens and I never know what an appropriate consequence is!
Parenting and discipline is the hardest thing in the world. No one can ever be prepared for this! Ugh...can't even imagine what's going to happen when Addison is this age, she's such a little princess now!

  1. I'm with you girl! I couldn't get my little guy dressed for bed tonight. He kept curling in a ball and giggling. I finally just left and went to his room. I couldn't think of a consequence either! He finally came in upset, knowing I was upset. I hear options are good, so I gave him the option: either I get him dressed, or his daddy. Well, he chose me, and I got my way without a meltdown. It is hard to reach for new ideas, isn't it?
