I am being too easy or too hard on him. We live in an area where all the neighbor hood kids play together and have a blast. I allow my children to play in the front and backyard of a few of their friends and at the park which I can see the entrance and front area of from my front window.
Anyways, my 7 yr old asked me if he could play with his friend at the park. I said yes! He goes and plays at the park...all good. Then he gets TOO hot and decides to go and play in his friends backyard. I go to find him at the park but he isn't there! I find him in his friends backyard and bring home while I explain he is grounded for the rest of the day for not telling me where he was playing. He is devastated but I want him to get the message. TELL ME WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO BE PLAYING! Why is it so hard for him to get that message.
