...today my 6 year old was in the bathroom playng with matches, i had them in their for my candle for when i take a bath.. i didn't think anything of it.. i smelt the burning smell.. or the smell of the match.. after he came out of the bathroom.. soooooooooooooo i walk in their and i say "(insert childs name) where you playing with matches?' Him.."not me mom.." Me.."you were the last one in the bathroom" (needless to say i had to ask about 6 times before i got the truth.. so immediately sent him to his room told him i was going to spank him.. soooooooo he was in his bed.. i finally calmed down (i was mad.angry.dissapointed) i went in his room told him to come here, (they have a bunk bed, he sleeps on top one!) because i was going to spank him and he wouldn't... so i started taking his stuffed men (hulk, sonic) from his bed and told him i was going to throw them in the trash, he started flipping out and he was yelling at me but still not coming down.. then i went for hisn ew shoes that my sister just bought for him and i told him, that i was taking them and throwing them in trash... the tantrum got bigger but he wasn't coming down ... so then i went to his drawer took everything out and told him i was going to throw everything away, well needless to say he wasn't coming down.. sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo i called his dad (dad and i aren't together, he hasn't seen dad in about a month..he was gonna go to the movies with him on friday) and i said "so he refuses to come down from his bed so he can't go to the movies on friday with you!" he still didn't come down.. then he started crying and said "why don't you love me mommy".............................................................
i walekd out of the room.. and i haven't gone back in .. was i too harsh??

IMO, it's not fair to take away something that his dad had planned, especially if he doesn't live there and hasn't seen him in a month. My son has a bunk bed as well. Since he refused to come down, he should lose the privilege of sleeping on the top bunk.
