  • My kids(when they were small) and gkids6 and 5) are very well behaved too.. but there are days where they just get wiry. Those are the days I find I have to be extra patient and work hardest to keep them occupied.
    The thing is...theses are YOUR kids and you have to make the choice. I just think it's important to make the punishment fit the crime.

  • If they were 10 and 12..yeah their butt would stay home..but 7 and 5 is a pretty short attn span. When kids are acting out like that it is often a good sign they need redirection. Make them sit down and write Dad a story, make a fathers day card or picture, color, see who can build a puzzle faster. Kids get bored just like we do only faster.
