My 4yo was acting up with two other boys (4 and 6yo brothers) in church this morning. I was having zero luck getting my son to cooperate and behave, even after a timeout, and was getting ready to go home early. We have a standing reward if he's good in church, and I reminded him he was going to lose that as well. There was just no getting through to him.
The other boys mother came in, called them over, whispered something to them, and they were IMMEDIATELY much better!
Do you have a "threat" that you use to get your kid to immediately behave like that? What's your best trick when you're loosing control of your little one in a public place? Please share what works for you!
