we had a problem with the little one (about 3 at the time) throwing things. my DH tossed a toy into the toy box in front of her-she seemed to take it as a OK to throw things, so she started tossing things around the room like he did.
Not really being sure how to explain to her that what he did was different and all, I went with my instinct&said to DH
"you threw that! you made a bad choice! you have to get a time out!" he went along with it, though he was looking at me like I was insane the whole time. So He got a time out just like the little one would have. The while time she sat by him patting him in the shoulder telling him that it was going to be OK, that she was there for him!
man, I wish I had this on video!
to be fair I got a time out a few months later for saying shut-up in front of her.
But she wasn't consoling me, she thought it was funny :(
anyone else ever punish a adult to make a point?
