If your preschooler or young elementary schooler (age 3-6) were to unplug your freezer (empty at the time) would you think it appropriate to calmly talk to them and explain that if they do that again, it will make all the food you just bought go bad and they will have a very hungry tummy?
I posted this in the newcomer's group and somebody jumped on me, telling me that threatening food is not appropriate punishment. Apparently, she failed to realize that I was not punishing at all, just explaining the natural consequence of the situation.
So, what would you have done?
