My son is 6. he is in the middle of the worst melt down we have had since he was 3 or so. He has been yelling in his rrrom for the last 20 min and has thrown all his toys up against the door and has stripped his bed. Part of me wants to go in and pick up all his stuff bag it up and keep it out of his reach until he earns it back but part of me says that isn't fair. I have already told him he will be in his room tomorrow until the mess he made is cleaned up so i feel the consequence is there. I just don't know what to di with him. The trigger was me telling him to not play in the bathroom sink. I told him to get out of the bathroom he was making a mess. If I got to 3 he was going to loose dessert. I got to 3 he lost dessert and next we are here. I calmly usered him into his room and tried to talk him through it like normal but we are getting no where so I left him on his own for a while.
