Our son turned 3 in Nov. We've been doing Time outs since 18 months. We try to get down to his level, short explanations, toys taken away, stern consistent voices and consequences, well, since turning the Dreaded 3... none of this is working.. lol.. we can NOT get him to be nice to our 5 month old kitten for anything.. while I was on the phone with my husband who is home with him, he just had Max tell me what he did ( was not nice to the kitten) and told me he got his scooby taken away and it made him sad.. well, no sooner than my husband getting back on the phone I hear my husband yell, MAX NO- You go up to your room... Now you got Jessie taken away ( Jessie from toy story is his favorite toy ) And he went calmly to his room, walked back out and says "here dad, you forgot to take away Jessies hat too" then walked back in his room... I couldn't help but to laugh on the phone ... my husband also has a smart witty smart ass quality that seems.. oh SO similar to how my son acts, its uncanny..lol!!~ I think I'm in trouble.. No questions, just a funny I got to laugh at today.
