My DD is over 4 and has been going through this super testy phase recently. Like everyday for the las 3 years of her life before dinner is time for the kids to clean the living room up. Put away toys, use the sweeper, put the pillows and such back away... That kind of stuff. WE recently she has been pulling this "I'm too tired" thing then after sitting in time out she wil do it but whine the whole time. Well tonight I warned her I was over the whining and asked her is she was going to clean up the living room and eat hamburgers with the family and get dessert or eat a cheese sandwich in her room - get no dessert and loose her favorite toys- since she can't seem to clean anything up. She chose her room and when I took away her doll house she said she didn't care and I could take all of them... so I did. Every toy. I tried to leave the stuffed monkey she sleeps with but she told me to take that too. So I did. So she ate a boring dinner alone and went straight to bed in an empty room... What do you think?? I just don't think she thoguht I was serious. But man, I am over it.
* I wanted to add that other than an initial "You hurt my feelings!!!" She has not said one word. Not evena wimper from her. Seh is unphased I guess. ::sigh::Answer Question
