You told you 4yo that he couldnt eat another bagel and to pick a healthy snack, he went and got it anyways, and started shoving it in his mouth right in front of you.
You take the bagel (because you told him not to eat it) and he screams and tries to hit you several times.
You bring him to his room and he starts throwing his clothes around the room while you are telling him why he is there. He then runs over and tries to kick you.
He comes downstairs after his timeout and you tell him to change his pull up and he says "I want my bagel" you proceed to tell him no and then he takes the wet pull up off and whips it at your chest.
He went back to time out.
Would you have handled this the same or differently?
I would have spanked him. If he is old enough to change his pullup he is old enough to go to the potty
The same, but he'd be kissing his favorite toys good-bye for awhile in addition to the time out.
Just let him throw his tantrum. He can't be reasoned with when he's throwing a fit because children move into their brain stem and do not have reasoning ability.
My son would have gotten a spanking
I would have duct taped him to a chair. CIO, little guy.
You seemed to have handled it well.
Why is he wearing a pull up still? I would put him back in.time out until he changed his attitude and did what he was told.
I would have probably allowed the bagel because its not really junk food. But after that I would have put him in his room and then just asked him what was making him so frusterated. Maybe offered another snack?
Quoting Blythe.:" I would have spanked him. If he is old enough to change his pullup he is old enough to go to the potty"
not that this post was even asking for PTing advice.
i would of done the same and have him clean up his mess. then apologize for his actions.
He'd stay in time out all day if that's what it took.
Quoting Captain Obvious:" not necessarily. not that this post was even asking for PTing advice."
I would give DD a spanking and put her in time out until she apologized
I would have handled it the exact same way. My 3 year old is notorious for throwing fits when told he cant have something though. He hasnt tried to hit or kick me in a long time though. Arent bagels healthy though?
