I have a child who is just not listening and just plain being lazy. I swear. I have told her to not use something today and I have caught her using it twice since she was told to put it away. She is already grounded from using her bike for a week for lying 6 times about the same thing before the truth was pulled out of her. She lied again yesterday about 8 times over the same thing she lied about the day before. I had her write 50 sentences for punishment reading "I will not lie about .....". I swear I am going to lose it and I really really don't want to spank, but I am getting really really close to doing it. I wish I had someone close enough to take them for a few hours, but our closest family is an 8 hour drive.
Just needed to get this off my chest. I think I need a time out, but what do I do with children that can't even play nice with each other today?
